Branded as a new urban haven for Beijing, the PuXuan Hotel & Spa has now opened.
The latest Urban Resort Concepts hotel is moments away from the Forbidden City and was designed by German architect Ole Scheeren.
The hotel completes the new Guardian Art Centre and is set in a new building at the intersection of WangFuJing Street and WuSi Street, a symbolic crossroads of commerce and arts.
In collaboration with Shanghai-based design firm MQ studio, the hotel’s interiors will exemplify URC’s hallmark design principles, integrating luxurious and understated metaphorical design throughout a modern space, uniquely crafted with local, cultural references.
Comprising 92 rooms and 24 suites, each feature handcrafted and artisanal furniture by Hermès-owned Chinese lifestyle brand Shang Xia and boast awe-inspiring views over either the Forbidden City or one of Beijing’s oldest neighbourhoods, DongCheng District.
Other spaces include The PuXuan Club, offering a new level of privilege along with round-the-clock exclusive access to a handsome and fully serviced lounge, Tea Room, The Lobby Lounge, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, and a variety of indoor and outdoor venues for both corporate and social gatherings.
