The best of Western and Oriental luxuries just minutes away from The Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square
Grand Hyatt Beijing is fully in line with the Chinese capital of today: modern, luxurious, impeccable. This five-star hotel has 825 rooms, several restaurants, bars and a lounge, as well as such leisure facilities as a whirlpool, a sauna, a fitness centre, a spa, an indoor pool and a children’s pool. In addition, Grand Hyatt Beijing seeks to satisfy the many business travellers visiting the hotel by offering their families a special package. The hotel offers a wide range of facilities, including a suite with two bedrooms, a six-seater car available for transfers from the airport, free access to the recreation centre, gifts for children and much more. In short, the hotel offers a new realm for both young and old.
The Forbidden City, the world’s largest palace complex to have survived the past, is an absolute must-see when visiting Beijing. The structure itself is now a museum, which houses artwork and artefacts from the Ming and Qing dynasties. Although definitely worth it, the high level of tourists gathering may leave you wanting a quick escape and a hearty meal. A short distance from here is the Noble Court restaurant. Chef Goh serves up his favourite seasonal contemporary Cantonese and Southern Chinese dishes, artfully presented as well as dim sum at lunchtime, a much loved tradition among the locals.
