A best bet for business in Beijing
253 Rooms / 48 Suites
There’s a lot to love about this business-focused hotel, one of two Ritz-Carltons in Beijing. The Ritz-Carlton Beijing, Financial Street is housed in a sleek high-rise near the Season’s Place shopping mall and in the center of the city’s banking and business district. For this reason, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel sees a mostly suit and tie crowd during the week, when the space is filled with guests taking advantage of the full afternoon tea service or sipping cocktails at the Crystal Bar.
Rooms are large (most are over 500 square feet) and contemporary in design, with masculine touches like zebrawood- and marble-clad bathrooms and tech gadgets such as electronic panels for controlling light and temperature or oversized flat-screen TVs. Be sure to make time to visit the hotel’s gym and spa, which has a movement studio for practicing yoga and a dramatic indoor swimming pool anchored by a full-wall screen that loops black and white movies.
