Four Seasons Hotel Beijing

A service-minded stunner
Opened in late 2012, Four Seasons Hotel Beijing is the newest of the high-end hotels to dot the capital’s embassy district, and was clearly designed to impress.

All of the guest room corridors overlook a 20-story inner atrium, with an astonishing wall of 400 stainless-steel butterflies from Australian artist Jayne Dyer stretching up to the sky.

Deluxe rooms come in at 495 square feet, and are elegantly attired and furnished with state-of-the-art technology, bathtubs with city views and clever architecture that seems to maximize living space.

Dining is one of the hotel’s strong suits; its signature restaurants, Mio and Cai Yi Xuan spout elegant takes on Italian and Chinese cuisine, respectively.

The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Beijing is one of the most impressive in town, with 11 suites and a book-sized menu of wellness treatments. It even has its own restaurant, Tea Garden, serving high-grade Chinese teas gong-fu style, paired with dainty imperial Chinese snacks.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The second floor of the luxury Beijing hotel features a gallery of high-end boutiques selling Chinese handicrafts and contemporary art, while a well-stocked international supermarket is just a five-minute walk away in Youyi Shopping City.
  • From 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. the living room-style lounge plays host to English, Parisian and Golden Dragon teas, the latter including delicacies with truffles and caviar on a silver three-tiered cake stand.
  • The hotel offers a lovely indoor pool, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the rooftops of the Chaoyang District, comfy cushioned loungers and a large whirlpool.
  • Traditional Chinese motifs are found throughout, like the ceramic vases and bowls displayed on the shelves in the bedroom and bathroom among books about Chinese handicrafts, while framed prints of calligraphy collages decorate the walls.
Things to Know
  • Guests hoping for a cozy and intimate cocktail bar will need to look elsewhere, as the hotel bar shares space with the living room-style two-story all day dining lounge housed in the lobby.
  • The sixth floor includes separate locker rooms shared between spa guests and hotel guests, with a bubbling whirlpool tub, three-tiered sauna, steam room, full-size lockers, showers and vanity areas.
  • The Four Seasons Hotel Beijing is not located in a tourist area, meaning quieter streets, but longer trips to the city’s main sights, like Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City.
  • The pea soup is a must-try for those ordering room service. The hot and thick soup is poured tableside, and includes chunks of crabmeat and a drizzling of chili oil.
The Rooms
  • The guest rooms at the Four Seasons Hotel Beijing are extremely spacious and luxurious, with a distinctive style that blends modern furnishings with traditional Chinese design.
  • Dark wooden flooring at the entry foyer matches the carved wooden double doors leading to the huge closet and enormous bathroom.
  • A thick ribbed beige carpet is used for most of the bedroom, while the rest of the furnishings are finished in taupe, velvety maroon and dark blue tones.
  • A signature plush bed faces a 40-inch LED television, while amenities like DVD player, espresso machine, extensive mini bar and universal outlets by the desk and nightstands are requisite.
  • The glass-top desk is large and accompanied by an executive leather desk chair, and a wide armchair and ottoman provide a pleasant spot to sit by the windows.
The Look
  • The Four Seasons Hotel Beijing has an elegant and upscale design style, blending traditional Chinese motifs with modern art.
  • Upon entering the hotel, guests are immediately impressed by the enormous modern calligraphy paintings by Chinese artist Qin Feng, hanging behind the reception and concierge desks.
  • Watercolor and ink-stroke paintings are displayed in black frames throughout the corridors, while a tea garden on the sixth floor of the hotel features dark wooden floors, sleek stone fountains and sprays of white orchids.
  • The Beijing property dazzles with a subtle design aesthetic — sculptures and art pieces are on rotation in the first-floor areas; a jaw-dropping wall of 400 stainless-steel butterflies sits in the inner atrium; elegant writing desks and stationery trays stand out in the guest rooms.
  • The living room-style lounge features a two-story nature landscape hanging on one wall, opposite a stately marble staircase in an X-shape.
