Shangri-La Hotel, Beijing

A lush, luxurious address for tranquility seekers
With warm lighting and classic décor, the Shangri-La is easily one of Beijing’s top hotels (though travelers should take note of its remote location near the Summer Palace — trips to the city center could take up to an hour in traffic). Its elegant design features Chinese detailing, including wooden panels that resemble traditional Chinese windows. Mirrored ceilings give hallways a spacious feeling.

The newer Valley Wing features rooms that are even more spacious and elegant than those in the Garden Wing and include perks like butler service. The well-equipped gym; relaxing pool area; and new, world-class spa ensure your stay will be more than comfortable.

The restaurants offer plenty of variety, from French spot S.T.A.Y. to the newly remodeled Nishimura. The Chinese-influenced rooftop gardens, which are connected to the gym facilities, are perfect for strolling. Located farther from the city center, the Shangri-La helps guests find serenity in their stay.
