The Ritz-Carlton Beijing, Financial Street

A best bet for business in Beijing
VERIFIED LUXURY
There’s a lot to love about this business-focused hotel, one of two Ritz-Carlton properties 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.

  • Restocked during housekeeping service and turndown, the complimentary bottled water is essential for keeping you hydrated during your stay.
  • Centrally located in Beijing’s Financial District, the hotel is near many of the city’s top historic sites such as Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, which are about a 10 to 15 minute cab ride away, depending on traffic, of course.
  • If you’re traveling as a family, make sure to inform the hotel about the tiny tourists as they will supply kid-sized robes and other perks to make sure that your entire family is happy.
Things to Know
  • For business or leisure travelers, there is complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as an Ethernet connection in the room to hook up laptops or other devices.
  • As many taxi drivers don’t speak English, remember to ask the hotel for their card so that you can show the taxi driver the hotel address on your way back.
  • The hotel has a movement studio where private yoga classes can be arranged, or you can do some moves on your own by following the framed sketch of various yoga poses hanging on the wall.
The Rooms
  • The guest rooms at The Ritz-Carlton Beijing, Financial Street are definitely modern, with huge floor-to-ceiling windows and sleek, dark-stained wooden furniture.
  • The mini-bar includes a teakettle and complimentary teas and water bottles, and the double door closet features more than enough space for travelers who tend to over pack.
  • The bedroom area has plush carpeting and silk wallpaper with Chinese watercolor paintings hanging above the bed and the tub in the bathroom.
  • The rooms have all of the modern conveniences expected of a luxury property, including automatic drapes for both the blackout curtains and sheer curtains, which definitely come in handy if you’re facing the sun during the high afternoon hours.
The Restaurants
  • Though Greenfish also offers a la carte options for lunch and dinner, we love the lunch buffet because you can sample a variety of traditional Chinese fare, like dim sum, fried pork ribs and stir-fried noodles, as well as curried soups made to order.
  • At Qi, the restaurant on the second floor of the hotel that features Chinese cuisine, we love the slightly spicy tofu stewed with minced beef. Make sure to alternate with steamed rice between bites.
  • Cépe serves up award-winning Italian cuisine in a stylish dining room. Wine aficionados will love the extensive menu featuring more than 400 vintages.
  • With its lengthy cocktail menu, there is something for everyone at Crystal Bar & Lounge and going during happy hour means you can sample two drinks for the price of one.
