Vast upscale bed-down with over-the-top pool, buzzy lobby and one of Beijing’s most convenient locations
This massive curved tower may seem all business up front, with 825 rooms and suites decked out in a simple, Western-vibed elegance of blond wood, black-and-white photos and marble baths. But then you discover the party in the back: Club Oasis. The gigantic indoor pool is ringed by Atlantis-like stone columns, potted palms, waterfalls, and Jacuzzi grottos with a color-changing “sky” that wouldn't feel out of place in Vegas. Interior walkways to the subway and Malls at Oriental Plaza make the hotel's seven dining and drinking destinations as much a hit with Beijing's moneyed masses as with guests.
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 hundreds of 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.
