What you need to know about the hotel

Stylish, contemporary design meets warm, attentive service

  • Learn age-old tea traditions and select from 88 different types of tea at the Crystal Bar & Lounge
  • The massive 15,000-square-foot Ritz-Carlton Spa includes a heated indoor lap pool, steam rooms and Jacuzzi beds
  • The Club Lounge on the 18th floor has sweeping views, a library and five food and beverage offerings a day

Just by stepping into the hotel, you may become healthier, wealthier and wiser. That’s because the elegant The Ritz-Carlton Beijing, Financial Street is laid out according to the principles of feng shui. It’s no surprise to find up-to-date technology within this relatively new steel and glass building, but it also offers surprisingly inviting interiors.

The four dining and lounge options range from Italian to Cantonese—all quite good—and the expansive spa and fitness center deliver a long list of ways to unwind and recharge. There’s no doubt this is a luxury hotel on par with any in the Ritz-Carlton collection, though it’s a tad on the generic side.

Where is it and what's nearby

Beijing is a modern, cosmopolitan city, but its centuries-old cultural attractions get top billing

  • Beijing was formerly Peking, and its namesake duck dish is a crisp, juicy treat that should be eaten in its birthplace
  • Biking around the hutong area is the best way to explore Beijing and discover the traditional culture
  • The hotel offers phenomenal teas, but tea aficionados should visit the shops at Malian Dao and the city’s many teahouses

As its name suggests, the hotel is in the heart of the financial district—a hot spot for business travelers, as well as discerning leisure travelers. It’s a traditional district that’s slowly emerging as a choice destination for businesses catering to R&R seekers. The hotel benefits from the Financial Street Garden out front, which lends a bit of greenery to the location.

Of course there’s the Great Wall—a must at least once in your life—but after you’ve done that, it can be hard to decide what to tackle next in Beijing. Tap the concierge staff, who are experts in helping guests plan itineraries that fit their interest. If you try to go it alone, you risk missing something big or, maybe more importantly, something other tourists aren’t aware of.

How to enjoy Beijing

According to Katie Melua there are 9 million bicycles in Beijing. There are actually more cars, but still, the song’s sentiment captures the romance of the city where 1,000 year old walls nestle comfortably amid 21st century architecture and traffic

  • Put the pagoda on top of the hill in Jingshan Park on your must-see list, it affords picture perfect views over the Forbidden City
  • Pay your respects to the embalmed remains of Chairman Mao at the Mao Mausoleum south of Tiananmen Square
  • Wudaoying Hutong has something for everyone. It brings together the best from the East and the West - from coffee shops and fast food to the VA Bar, which features up-and-coming music artists and local bands as well as its own open mic night on Wednesdays.

For an exclusive insight into Beijing, discover the places just off the main tourist trail. Chonghua Palace (Palace of Double Glory), for example. It is one of the 980 buildings that comprise the Unesco World Heritage Site, The Forbidden City, and is usually off limits in order to protect its gold brick floor. Special visits can be arranged, though: speak to your concierge.

It is easy to find a crowd-free trip to the Great Wall. The edifice is huge. You just need to pick a less popular spot for this stunning attraction, such as Mutianyu or hike to Jiankou. It’s also possible to get a unique take on many other Beijing treasures. The Seventeen Arch Bridge over Kunming Lake at the Summer Palace at sundown is spectacular and the hutongs give a flavor of the city when the bike was still king.
