Park Hyatt’s hotel in the prestigious Beijing Yintai Centre is the tallest skyscraper on Chang’an Avenue (a symbol of the “new China.”) The 246 contemporary guest rooms have blond wood, crisp white linens, functional workstations for the hotel’s many business travelers, and spa-inspired bathrooms for anyone who wants to relax. The spa itself is inspired by traditional Chinese medicine, and its treatments include tui na massage and cupping; no less enticing are the fitness center and lap pool high in the sky. The varied dining venues include an outpost of the China Grill steak house with staggering city views, while the Xiu complex includes three bars, wine cellars, and live entertainment.
In the Area
The hotel is directly opposite the China World Trade Center and the architecturally striking CCTV tower, and within walking distance of major tourist attractions such as Beihai Park, built in the 11th century as an imperial garden and now a public park; Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City are also in range. The contemporary art scene is thriving nearby as well, including the 798 Dashanzi Art Zone, the Red Gate Gallery, and the Today Art Museum.
How to Get There
The hotel staff and service is great. However, you need to ride 3 elevators to get between the make shift lobby and your room. Literally, ride 62 floors up, go up the hall to another elevator, ride one floor down, then walk around the corner to the elevator that goes to guest rooms.
Renovation began a day before my arrival and the notice I received stated we would potentially hear some construction. I heard nothing during my entire stay. However, the 3 elevator experience was never mentioned. There were also no seats or benches in the lobby to wait for your car. I feel the hotel was not forthright in their message regarding renovations. Had they been, I would have moved my reservation to the Grand Hyatt, where I ate dinner one night during my week long stay. It was a great hotel and I wish I had stayed there. When renovations are complete, I am sure the Park Hyatt will be nice, but I would avoid this hotel until they are done.
Honestly I was not very impressed this time. The hotel is getting old and they made some new rooms which look great! Very comfortable rooms. Nice design. The restaurant does not have a Park Hyatt standard. It is old and worn down. The breakfast and dinner did not impress me at all. Hopefully this will change soon and improve. I really like Park Hyatt hotels.
I used to stay here regularly, but no more. Windows in public areas these days are extremely unclean, fogged up and rain-streaked to the point where the view is obstructed. In addition, there is some major refurbishment ongoing, which is forgivable, but together with deteriorating upkeep of the exterior this establishment has become extremely poor value. Management: please contact me when you've gotten your act together and cleaned your windows. I will be happy to return.
it was great to be there , staff excellent. it is easy to get to. access to shopping center was great. i would certainly recommend it to other people and friends to stay there. i hope the construction is finished soon so the access gets easier.
Check in at top floor was quick before taking a lift down to the rooms. Room was great with good views despite the polluted air that week end. Hotel arranged a day chauffeured trip to great wall (approx 750CNY) - a very good driver we could relax both ways. 20-25meter Pool was good too. Late lunch on top floor was OK
