The first of the W Hotel’s new budget boutique line to open in Asia, aloft Beijing is situated in the university district of Haidian within easy reach of various convention centers and the Olympic Park. If you have business in the north of the capital, then this is a good choice for you. There are 186 guestrooms, all of which have airy 9-foot-high ceilings, free WiFi, 42″ flat screen TV, oversized showers and amenities by the Bliss Spa in New York. We recommend booking one of the four Cool Corner Rooms for the views. The playful and colorful room design by the sought-after David Rockwell carries over into the public spaces including RE:MIX where you can shoot pool and the WXYZ cocktail bar. At RE:FUEL, you can grab gourmet munchies and serve yourself cappuccino whenever you want. There is also a 24-hour fitness center and a pool open morning to night.
