The hotel will also be located in close proximity to the new China International Exhibition Center, which opened in March 2008, and is expected to further enhance Beijings reputation as a key MICE (meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions) destination in China. Beijing reportedly has over 45% of the share of international MICE business in China.

With 324 spacious rooms, each to be a minimum of 40 sq meters, the Hilton Beijing Capital Airport will feature 5 restaurants including 144 seats in all private dining rooms, a lobby lounge, piano bar and wine and cigar bars.
