exhibition centers and numerous international corporate offices, while the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the Silk
Market are all within fifteen minutes of the hotel.
The General Manager will be Stefan Simkovics, most recently the GM at Four
Seasons Hotel Berlin.
Four Seasons Hotel Beijing will offer approximately 300 guest rooms and suites built around a central atrium. Complete meeting
facilities include two ballrooms and additional function spaces that will be easily accessed from the adjacent commercial office
tower. Three restaurants and a lobby lounge will offer a variety of local and international dining experiences, and private rooms
will be available for more intimate business and social events. Both the business traveler and tourist will appreciate the
extensive spa and fitness facilities planned at the hotel. The spa will offer a full range of treatments, and guests can exercise
using the most advanced cardiovascular and strength training equipment in the gym, or workout in the indoor pool.
