The swanky design style of Park Hyatt Beijing is considered traditional, with Ming- and Qing-era furnishings in the guest rooms. (More contemporary appointments can be found in the communal areas like the fitness center and cinema.) The expansive grounds are inspired by a classic Chinese temple, and feature covered pathways, stone bridges, landscaped gardens, courtyard dwellings, and separate sandalwood pavilions housing the restaurants, library and lobby. The wood beams lining the hallways connecting the different areas of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel are painted with vibrant blue and green designs, echoing the colorful Qing dynasty artwork. Inside the guest rooms, the rich wood furniture leans toward the Ming period. Public areas are stunning in their simplicity — polished Jin clay tiles glow an amber-brown in the daylight, complementing the wood latticed windows, coffered ceilings and white walls. Jewel-toned silk pillows invite guests to sit on one of the many sofas flanking the walls of the Arrival Pavilion and Library. Also not to be missed? The enormous carved wood screen depicting a traditional pavilion in the mountains that greets you as you enter the lobby.
