The Waldorf Astoria Beijing has opened its doors marking the second Waldorf Astoria hotel in China and the brand’s continued international expansion.
The 176-room property features three unique restaurants, including Peacock Alley, Brasserie 1893 and Zijin Mansion, 796 square meters of function meeting space, a spa and fitness centre with heated indoor swimming pool.
The hotel is operated by Hilton Worldwide and owned by China Oil & Foodstuffs Corporation.
“Waldorf Astoria Beijing is the epitome of luxury, a true expression of Beijing’s heritage and unique culture in a location providing global travellers with personalized service and inspirational environments that become the source for unforgettable moments,” said John Vanderslice, global head, luxury and lifestyle brands, Hilton Worldwide.
“Since its inception, the Waldorf Astoria brand continues to expand with landmark openings in prestigious destinations around the world.
“Today, we are proud to introduce True Waldorf Service in China’s capital city with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Beijing and are confident that this hotel will offer guests unforgettable experiences that only happen at a Waldorf Astoria.”
Waldorf Astoria Beijing is located in the heart of the city on the former site of Xianliang Temple, which was the permanent residence of Li Hongzhang, the first Chinese guest to stay at the iconic Waldorf Astoria New York.
Li’s visit held great political, economic, and cultural significance within China.
Guest rooms include 38 suites in the main hotel tower and the Waldorf Hutong Villa, three Hutong studios and a room housed in two villas with private entrances located in a garden courtyard.
Waldorf Astoria Beijing is comprised of two magnificent buildings with varying styles.
The main tower is an elegant bronze building which will transform its colour as it ages.
The surrounding Hutong Villas bear the elements of ancient Imperial China, providing a breathtaking scene to behold.
From arrival to departure, guests are not only embraced by the striking design, but also welcomed by True Waldorf Service.
This service initiative assigns a personal concierge, acting as a primary contact, to every guest ensuring that each request is fulfilled.
