Restored Luxury: The Peninsula Beijing
After an extensive renovation totaling over $120 million, The Peninsula Beijing has emerged as one of Beijing’s premier luxury addresses for business and leisure travelers alike. Some 27 years after its original opening, the restyled hotel combines timeless Chinese artistry and craftsmanship with cutting-edge technology and superlative service to set spectacular new standards in design, luxury and comfort.
From the first step inside, the Peninsula Beijing exudes pure grandeur, elegance and timelessness. The lobby has been reconfigured into a grand three-story space, featuring luxurious materials such as bronze, onyx, white marble and rosewood, as a salute to Beijing’s opulent heritage and modern transformation. A unique aspect to the lobby is the removal of a traditional check-in desk, instead guests are welcomed by staff with iPads, all of which can provide everything from check-in and check-out, book spa appointments and concierge services to name a few.
The technology trend is extends into all of the rooms, where modern conveniences such as lighting/climate control and city information can be accessed through an iPad. The elegantly renovated suites are now the largest in Beijing and among the most spacious in China, which offer a separate bedroom, living room, bathroom and cloakroom. Their bespoke design is styled with contemporary and classic Chinese motifs, luxury materials and artworks.
Centrally located in the heart of Beijing, the hotel is perfectly situated within walking distance to the area’s most iconic locations including the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. The Peninsula Beijing truly has it all – from stunning facilities, world-class service and a unique combination of tradition, heritage, innovation and glamour offers guests a hotel stay unlike any other.
