Yabu Pushelberg Landscape helps design Waldorf Astoria Beijing

Hilton Worldwide and Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts opened the Waldorf Astoria Beijing, marking the second Waldorf Astoria hotel in China and the brand's continued international expansion.

Waldorf Astoria Beijing has 176 guestrooms and suites; three restaurants, including Peacock Alley, Brasserie1893 and Zijin Mansion; 2,611 square feet of function meeting space; a spa and fitness center with heated indoor swimming pool. The hotel is operated by Hilton Worldwide and owned by China Oil & Foodstuffs Corporation (COFCO).

Waldorf Astoria Beijing is located in the heart of the city on the former site of Xianliang Temple, which was the permanent residence of Li Hongzhang, the first Chinese guest to stay at the Waldorf Astoria New York. Li's visit held great political, economic, and cultural significance within China. The hotel is 27 kilometers from Beijing International Airport, and is within walking distance of the Dengshikou Subway Station. Guests of the hotel have access to the shopping malls, central business district and historic landmarks, such as the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.

With interior designs crafted by architectural and engineering talents at Yabu Pushelberg Landscape, the Waldorf Astoria Beijing premises embody both modern and traditional elements. There is also a multi-million dollar art collection.

Guestrooms include 38 suites in the main hotel tower, and the Waldorf Hutong Villa, three Hutong studios and a room housed in two villas with private entrances located in a garden courtyard. Waldorf Astoria Beijing is comprised of two buildings with varying styles. The main tower is a bronze building which will transform its color as it ages. The surrounding Hutong Villas bear the elements of ancient Imperial China.

The hotel joins Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund as the brand's portfolio expands in China. Waldorf Astoria Beijing is located at 5-15 Jinyu Hutong, Dongcheng District, Beijing, China.
