General manager of Four Seasons, Sanjiv Hulugalle says “When I moved to Beijing with my family, we were struck by the warmth of the people and the pride they have in their city.” This grand hotel is hoping to uphold Beijing’s renowned standards for hospitality. The hotel’s team is staffed with over 600 carefully selected personnel that will aim to provide whatever the client needs. Centrally located in the Liangmahe area of the Business district, the Four Seasons Hotel Beijing is easily accessible from both the Great Wall and the international airport, thus making it the perfect destination for both business and pleasure. This Four Seasons has been built keeping traditional Chinese architecture in mind, with a wide facade at it’s entrance, a lobby filled with invigorating hues and hints of Chinese motifs such as the dragon in the carpet. Overall the hotel’s architecture has tried to reflect that of Beijing, as a place where Chinese tradition meets modern comfort. It’s 313 guest rooms each include a generous living area for families, plush robes for the weary traveller, an expresso machine for the business minded and the signature Four Seasons bed for every kind of guest.
Other than the standard guest rooms the hotel also contains 66 suites which are divided into Ambassador Suites, Beijing Suites, Chairman Suites and the crowning jewel on the top floor, the Imperial Suite. The Imperial Suite Spreads over 7,860 square feet, not including a 2,690 square feet balcony. This pinnacle of luxury contains 3 bedrooms, a living area, a library, pool, staff kitchen with an outdoor cooking pit, media room and an exercise room. Not to mention that the elevator can lead directly to your bedroom.
The hotel’s two restaurants and three lounges are headed by Executive Chef Martin Knaubert with his staff of a 130. The Lounges offers everything from a bar that gives you an old- time private club feeling to Tea on a Sunday Afternoon. The first of the two restaurants is Cai Yi Xuan which offers glamorous Chinese food with a dramatic decor. On the other hand the Italian restaurant Mia offers an open sunlit floor and open show kitchens.
The Four Seasons has always been a business destination throughout the world, assuring up to the minute business facilities as well as personalized service and discretion.
