The Westin Beijing Chaoyang is located near Sanlitun in the northern Embassy district and is a quick shot to the airport on the expressway. There are 550 guestrooms, each of which features the signature Heavenly Bed, a Rainforest shower and good views of the surrounding area. We suggest checking out the Renewal Room, which comes complete with its very own ‘bathologist’, a foot massager and a Bose sound system. Guests can enjoy healthy snacks beside the 25-meter-long indoor pool attached to the Heavenly Spa, which offers Chinese-influenced therapies. The hotel has also become an after-work hotspot with regular cocktail parties at Touch, which has a live DJ and stocks 88 types of vodka. Jazz bar Mix is also popular with the capital’s corporate set. Seasonal Tastes host the weekly Bubbalicious brunch on Sundays and it’s elbowroom only so make sure to book well before.
