The Waldorf Astoria Beijing is slated to open March 1, 2014.
The 175-room property is located in Wangfujing, a 700-year-old area of the city that offers great nightlife, entertainment facilities and shopping. The hotel’s amenities include an all-day dining outlet, specialty restaurant, two bars, fitness centre and indoor swimming pool.
Event spaces include a large ballroom and spacious meeting rooms. Room capacities range from eight to 200. A business center is also available for hotel guests.
The hotel reports that its meeting space is “ideally suited to groups requiring a discreet place to meet for business while still having close access to Beijing’s leisure and tourist attractions.” The hotel is a 10-minute drive from the hotel to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. The Central Business District and Financial Street are a 15-minute drive away.
It is also located close to the central Government buildings, providing easy access for delegations or meetings with government departments.
