The Zen sensibility of Park Hyatt Beijing immediately sets it apart from other luxury hotels in China’s capital. The hotel whispers tranquility around each corner, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning views of the CCTV Tower a few blocks away, and inviting white leather benches that will lure you to sit and unplug. Even the architecture of the floating stairways that lead to bars and restaurants above is an exercise in serenity. In the evening, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel transforms into a hotbed of nightlife, with the neon skyline wrapping around both the bustling bar XIU and the more sophisticated lounge in the China Grill. The guest rooms are far from the cookie-cutter modern design copied throughout Beijing — the bathroom has an open layout with a square spa tub and walk-in shower, and an East Asian touch is apparent in the sliding doors that close off the bedroom.
