Beijing has some excellent luxury hotels, but if you have a short stay and want to stay in the center of the city, the Peninsula Beijing is the hotel of choice. It’s walking distance from Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City (pictured above).
Since my stay at the Peninsula Beijing in 2011, the hotel has gone through a thorough renovation. The number of rooms have been halved, and even the lead-in guests rooms are now an extremely spacious 600 square feet — laid out like a suite and providing walk-in closets for guests.
We can offer you a great set of Virtuoso amenities — guaranteed upgrade at time of booking (rate already reflected in the room rate), complimentary American Breakfast for two daily, and a $100 F&B credit per stay. As we are a PEN Club agency, you’ll also benefit from PEN Time, a flexible 24-hour check in/check out policy.
China is a fascinating destination, and when in Beijing, you’ll also want to visit the Great Wall of China and the Summer Palace. We can help you Discover More with a totally personalized tour of China.
