Courtyard – the courtyard is at the heart of the hotel and is where everyone and everything gets together for a meal, a drink, a book, a bit of tranquility in the sun, or to enjoy one of the hotel’s cultural programs.
Our private cars and drivers are at your disposal at the hotel and are ready to take you to any location in Beijing. Private trips can be arranged to the Great Wall and Ming Tombs (about 1 and half hours drive). Our concierge and guest relations staff are happy to help you plan and book any type of trip or activity.
Hutongs are old traditional narrow alleys and single story courtyard houses. Hutongs once dominated the city of Beijing, but since the mid-20th century have been demolished in the name of modernization. Many still survive today, preserving this aspect of Chinese cultural history and traditional life. You can find small restaurants and stores, tea houses, and also witness mahjong games on the streets, watch rickshaws drive by and simply see how people in Beijing lived in the past.
