Designed by Japanese architect Paul Tange, the Fairmont stands in stark contrast to some of the behemoth skyscraper hotels that surround it in the uber-modern Central Business District. The rose glass-clad tower takes its architectural inspiration from the past and is meant to evoke one of China’s ancient city gates. Interiors are bedecked with Chinese artwork, and panoramic windows allow for lots of natural light, creating a setting that feels both modern and warm.
Bed and Bath
Commodious guestrooms have floor-to-ceiling-windows that offer views of new Beijing, such as the China World Trade Center. Sleek and understated, the decor melds Asian minimalism with Western fluff. Beds have 400-thread-count linens and mother-of-pearl headboards that mimic the building’s China gate motif. Painted in tranquil ivory hues, the rooms are enlivened with gem-colored raw silk pillows and understated Chinese drawings and paintings. Spa-style bathrooms feature heated floors, a TV visible from the oversize bathtub and rain showers stocked with Miller Harris bath products. Fairmont Gold Rooms also have blingy 24K gold shower heads.
Serving an international clientele of business and luxury travelers, the Fairmont Beijing offers both Western and Chinese options for dining. Lunar 8, a classic Cantonese restaurant, consists of myriad private dining rooms. With superlative Peking duck and dim sum, it attracts locals as well. A swish steakhouse that draws inspiration from Chicago’s storied eateries, the Cut serves succulent beef and grilled seafood. The three-tier Willow Stream Spa offers a treatment menu with both Eastern and Western possibilities — as well as housing an immense fitness center, swimming pool, yoga room and tai chi workout area (the hotel is known for its one-on-one tai chi tutorials). With myriad champagne choices, the Champagne Bar buzzes as an evening social scene. And the Lobby Lounge Bar serves well-mixed craft cocktails.
