Four Seasons Hotel Beijing, which opened just recently in 2012, stands out from other hotels in China’s capital city with its luxurious amenities, top business and leisure facilities and dining options. Located in the Yansha area of the Central Business District of the city’s northeast Chaoyang District, this isn’t the hotel to choose for proximity to key tourist locations. Nonetheless, guests will be able to rest up for full days of touring thanks the hotel’s spacious rooms. The rooms feature dark wood flooring and thick ribbed carpeting, an extensive mini bar selection, plush beds, velvet-upholstered armchairs, an executive desk with leather chair and marble-clad bathrooms with a large shower, separate water closet and deep soaking tubs. Business travelers can make use of the 24-hour business center on the third floor known as The Hub, as well as the complimentary laundry and pressing services, and exclusive breakfast and cocktail hour that comes with executive club access. Leisure travelers will readily flock to the sixth floor’s recreational area, which houses a serene tea garden, professional-grade gym, sunlight-soaked indoor pool, fully equipped locker rooms with steam, sauna and whirlpool tub and Four Seasons Spa. For dining, we can’t recommend the Chinese restaurant Cai Yi Xuan for dim sum enough — be sure to try the delectable “money bags” dumplings and xiaolongbao with crab roe. Mio, the Italian restaurant, sees a steady stream of well-heeled diners throughout the evening, while casual all day dining fare and premium cocktails are available in the luxurious living room-style lounge in the back of the lobby.
