China,

A short stroll from the Forbidden City, the Emperor is a contemporary homage to its 600-year-old neighbor. Designs on the suede walls and etched-glass bathrooms echo the sloped-roof silhouettes of the Imperial Palace, and the rooftop Yin bar has impressive views of the royal grounds. Welcome to China’s new design dynasty.
