It’s lift-off for Langham Place, Beijing Capital International Airport as the hotel celebrated its grand opening on the 28 October, 2010. The cutting-edge five-star hotel beside Sir Norman Foster’s iconic Terminal 3 has revolutionised the way we see airport accommodation and established itself as the world’s first ‘lifestyle airport hotel’.
Featuring DJs in the lobby, loft style apartment rooms and a stimulating 24-hour high-tech environment for work and play, Langham Place, Beijing Capital Airport has not only created a convenient stopover hotel but one of the most fun places to be in the Chinese capital. Where else can you play arcade games as you rock out to the DJ in the lobby, catch up on emails over a glass of Champagne in the 24-hour PORTAL ‘Work & Play’ bar and internet hub, or get a dose of local culture at the all-hours Art Gallery?
