Our Inspector's Highlights

  • It’s hard to beat this hotel’s views, which showcase several glorious architectural marvels in the Olympic Park. In the evening, the nearby Bird’s Nest and Water Cube come alive with a dazzling light show that’s a joy to watch.
  • The recently renovated rooms and suites feel spacious and relaxing, with crisp white bedding, rich gem-tone accents and a chaise lounge overlooking the stunning Olympic facilities.
  • Need a little extra space? In addition to the standard guest rooms (each measuring about 484 square feet), the hotel is home to 45 opulent suites, which span up to 3,380 square feet. These elegant abodes are ideal for bleisure travelers who relish distinct spaces to dine, work and unwind.

Things to Know

  • Talk about a prime location: this luxury hotel is a short drive from the airport, directly connected to the China National Convention Center (one of Asia’s largest exhibition halls) and within walking distance to the Beijing Olympic Park.
  • Beyond the immediate neighborhood, you can also reach many attractions within 15 to 20 minutes by car, including the 18th-century Lama Temple. Also known as the Yonghe Lamasery, the Tibetan Buddhist monastery is the largest of its kind in Beijing and a sight to behold with its grand temple halls and courtyards. Inside the halls, discover the world’s largest sandalwood Buddha, fascinating relics and a dedicated museum.
  • Heading south, you’ll discover the lush Houhai area, where three interconnected lakes cover 87 acres in the middle of the city. In the spring, the water comes alive with mandarin duck sand lotus flowers; it turns into an ice rink and sledding area in the winter.
  • For a taste of modern China, hop in a cab and head southeast to Sanlitun, a glittering shopping and nightlife district that attracts people from all corners of the capital city. Be sure to book dinner at Duck de Chine, a refurbished factory from 1949 that’s now one of the city’s best Peking duck eateries, followed by a single malt at Top Bar at InterContinental Beijing Sanlitun.
  • Jump on the Beijing Subway, a short walk from the hotel, and head to some of the easily accessible city attractions, like the famous Forbidden City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 178-acre imperial palace complex dates to 1406, is one of the best places in the world to experience dynastic architecture, artwork and feng shui principles.
