Style and panache come to Beijing! Finally the crème dla crème of the upper crust of Hotels comes to town. While the city is home to other high-end hotels, the Four Seasons is the latest in its echelon to grace the city. As this is 2014 and a new Hotel it comes not only with the best possible service, dinning and rooms available, but also fully integrated and embedded within the Hotel is cutting edge technology providing seamless interactive opportunities for the most tech savvy of travellers. From the moment one arrives at the Airport gate, a Four Seasons staff member is on hand to greet you as you step off the plane and assist you through Immigration, Customs and with the retrieval of your luggage. From there to be escorted to a waiting BMW with complimentary in Car WiFi. I can’t think of a better way to be met on arrival and then have both comfort and convenience available as you are taken for the 20-30 minute ride from the airport to the Hotel.
At the Hotel
I found the hotel well located being close to the Diplomatic enclave of San Li Tun for brand named boutiques and up market Bars and dining, and next to the Lufthunsa Centre for general shopping and banking etc. In the Hotel the Lobby and public areas offer a modern yet timeless elegance, more than that, taking inspiration from Four Seasons floral maestro, Jeff Leatham who is based at the Four Seasons George V Hotel in Paris. One is greeted with the most unique and simply breathtaking array of flowers throughout the Hotel.
Check-in and Rooms
In room Check in is available and provides an effective and personal introduction to the Hotel. With 313 well appointed guest rooms, including 66 luxurious suites, one will very much feel quite at home, rooms combine a superb “residential” look along with excellent work space and amenities for the business or leisure traveler. Rooms are a spacious 46 square meters or more, inclusive of standard speed WiFi and Ethernet at no charge, or high speed internet at a selected cost. As a great leap forward, the technology includes fully integrated HDMI, RCA, and iPad cord access so one can plug in a Laptop, iPhone or iPod directly and enjoy music or video on the large flat screen television, with a Bose speaker in the bathroom. By the bed is an iPhone/iPad dock (two points) that combines a stereo clock unit. Touches most certainly appreciated include electronically controlled curtains, plenty of stationary, with the likes of the usual envelopes and letterheads plus scissors, pens and pencils in a nearby console, with a nice choice of period style complimentary postcards, and in the main desk draw are 3 different types of PC related cables to ensure you will remain more than well connected to your media. Also a very welcome amenity is an illy coffee machine and a choice of coffee blends. The bed is very comfortable by any standard, and Housekeeping provide, two services daily, so along with a daily clean, the turn down service includes, ice and a quick “refresh” of the room. Perhaps the most outstanding feature is the size and detail in the massive bathroom, with a bath by the window for a view over Beijing, and again electronically controlled curtains for privacy complemented with more than ample quality soaps and toiletries. All beautifully presented, ensuring a very pleasant stay at the Four Seasons Beijing.
