A $27 million renovation in 2008 by NYC’s Alexandra Champalimaud & Associates lacquered even more luxe onto the 258 rooms and suites: modern Chinoiserie decor in copper and gold tones, polished woods and richly textured fabrics, marble bathrooms, fresh-cut flowers, and in-mirror LCD TVs. Round-the-clock butler service comes standard, but sporty perks like an eight-lane bowling alley, billiards table, squash courts, a gem-box of a glass-enclosed pool, and rooftop putting green/driving range are anything but. If you’ve clocked out on Chinese food, restaurant Danieli’s offers Beijing’s finest take on Italian food.
In the Area
Nearby Tiananmen Square and The Forbidden City may offer serious sightseeing, but pedestrianized Wangfujing Dajie, Beijing’s oldest and most famous shopping street, and the picturesque hutongs that branch off it present a crash course in Chinese culture that harkens back to the Ming Dynasty. Today over 280 odd stores from swanky relics (Shengxifu hats, Wuyutai tea) to flea market-style finds cater to the tourist trade. Set down a picturesque hutong is one of Beijing’s most charming restaurants, Dali Courtyard. A daily set menu lets you taste your way through expertly cooked Yunnanese specialties in a tree-lined courtyard ringed in Imperial-style walls. Feeling fearless? Wangfujing Xiao Chi Jie “Snack Street” offers pan-China street food with everything from Sichuan dumplings and Cantonese seafood soups to starfish, snakes and scorpions served on sticks. For a window into modern Beijing, spend an afternoon wandering through 798 Dashanzi, a complex of art galleries, cafes and boutiques carved from a factory district that once produced electronics for the military.
How to Get There
Our family (with two young kids) stayed here for one night and were very impressed with the high level of service of this hotel - it was simply amazing. The butler (Mr Yu) was very friendly and helpful. He went out of his way to help us with the luggage and show us the dining options around the area. Because of him and a few other staff that we met on that day, our family felt at home and really enjoyed the stay. We will definitely come back to this hotel.
It has been some time since I was staying at this prestigious hotel
In this place I met so many chiefs of state .
All the good memories got back to me
The new staff , although they did not know me any more, after checking my previous stays , threaded me like usual
Same place , a little older , but definitively the same high class institution .
I love this place and the location is great
Just returned from a three night stay at The St. Regis Beijing for work. The staff was truly excellent and the facilities were fantastic. Ava, Steven, Dong, Neil, and the whole front desk (among many others) all went above and beyond to ensure that my experience was as smooth and enjoyable as possible. It was my birthday during the stay at the hotel and once the butler service realized, they left me a wonderful chocolate cake that evening and a personal card written on behalf of the whole butler staff. This was emblematic of their approach to service. Steven and Neil were incredibly helpful with organizing transportation and sightseeing over the weekend and always delivered a warm and friendly greeting when I arrived back at the hotel. I also went to the buffet for lunch and dinner and had excellent meals and, once again, terrific service. It was only a relatively short stay and it was so nice to develop warm relationships with the staff. This will definitely be my preferred hotel in Beijing going forward.
