Hotels in Beijing

A mile from Tiananmen Square, with 500 streamlined rooms, top service (waiters remember how you take your coffee), and an indoor pool. 

Room to Book: Deluxe rooms with Forbidden City views are rooms 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, and 20 on the fifteenth and sixteenth floors.

Located in the Dongsi historic district, this restored boutique hotel includes five rooms surrounding a small courtyard like a traditional siheyuan, a type of residence common to Beijing with a specific design-style.

Over-the-top opulence reigns at this vaunted, century-old hotel—which is, appropriately, closer than any other to Beijing’s singularly grand Forbidden City.

This happy little courtyard hotel charms guests the moment they walk through the traditional red-lacquered gate.

Book one of the 2010-opened Gold Rooms, where bathrooms now have oversize bathtubs, heated floors, and over-the-top, 24-karat-gold rain showerheads.
