Location. Traditional Chinese pagoda gates mark the entrance to The Peninsula Beijing, located in Beijing, China. This luxury hotel stands within the Forbidden City cultural district and is positioned adjacent to the Wangfujing shopping district.
Hotel Features. The hotel's marble-clad lobby is bathed in subtle natural light that illuminates a central fountain. Hotel dining options include Jing which is connected to the lobby by a glass-enclosed circular staircase. Three open kitchens serve European and Asian fare. A glass cellar holds 1,400 bottles of fine wines. Huang Ting displays 200-year-old stone posts recovered from a former Suzhou nobleman's courtyard. This dining venue features Cantonese fare and dim sum specialties. The Lobby bar hosts afternoon teas, presents live music, and serves a selection of cocktails. A 427-square-meter fitness center contains treadmills, a stair machine and elliptical bicycles, all outfitted with LCD televisions. Three personal trainers offer workout guidance, while Pilates and yoga instructors are on call. Aromatherapy, sports massage, reflexology and Chinese acupressure are offered in two massage rooms.

Plasma televisions offer DVD players and cable channels. Beds are topped with premium linens and foam, straw, bean and holistic-designed pillows.

Expert Tip. The Peninsula Hotel houses a three-story shopping arcade that showcases 50 designer boutiques such as Chanel, Versace, Christian Dior and Gucci. The arcade also offers a bank and a medical clinic.
In 2006 Beijing's Second Ring Road (a major perimeter highway, such as the Beltway in Washington D.C.) will open direct access to the Peninsula Palace. This will allow shorter transit times to many business and tourist destinations throughout the greater Beijing metropolitan area.
The hotel pool has been closed for renovation. The hotel has arranged for guest to have access to the pool at the adjacent Lee Gardens apartment. The gymnasium and massage facilities will continue to be available at the hotel. There is no estimated completion date available.
