Apex of hospitality
Towering above the city, Shangri-La’s China World Summit Wing, Beijing offers world-class service and event spaces, with an art collection to rival museums
Nestled in Beijing’s CBD, the Shangri-La’s China World Summit Wing, Beijing, is perched at the top of the soaring 330-metre China World Tower. The unbeatable views from the hotel extend all the way to the rooftops of the Forbidden City.
One of the first things guests will notice is the hotel’s stunning array of art pieces, exclusively commissioned to complement the lofty ceilings and spacious setting. The museum-worthy collection boasts more than 100 pieces of art, including murals, paintings and decorations showcasing the beauty of contemporary China.
In the lobby, for example, guests will be awed by the 72-metre Art of Life mural, which captures the beauty of nature through acrylic oils and detailed brush strokes, while the four stunning “bubbles in space” chandeliers are made from Czech Republic hand-blown glass and weigh 500kg each.
There are 278 guestrooms (including 29 suites) boasting an average size of 65 sqm – the most spacious in the city, all with floor-to-ceiling views. Classic wooden décor incorporates subtle Chinese touches, and extensive facilities include complimentary internet, iPod docking stations and round-the-clock butler service.
The hotel also features the city’s highest dining and entertainment venues: the signature restaurant Grill 79, The Lounge, the bar Atmosphere, a Wine Bar and the Chairman’s Rooms, exclusive private dining facilities from level 79 upward. Further options to be found in the complex include legendary Hong Kong restaurant Seventh Son and Japanese cuisine at Nadaman – both on the level four.
Event organisers and meeting planners will find a world of choice and opportunity at China World Summit Wing, Beijing, with more than 5,500 sqm of dedicated space. Dominating the third floor is the Summit Ballroom, one of the city’s largest pillar-free ballrooms that can accommodate up to 2,000 people. Other standout features include the 10-metre-high ceilings, bullet proof floor-to-ceiling windows and a direct access car lift. The rooftop Pine Garden and a 95-seat auditorium are also available.
For relaxation, the hotel features a lifestyle sanctuary with 24-hour gym and indoor infinity swimming pool on level 78, as well as CHI, The Spa, Shangri-La’s signature spa brand.
The central location of China World Tower offers direct access to regional headquarters of multinational corporations plus high-end retail, F&B and tourist attractions. The complex is also home to the Guomao subway station, a strategic artery connecting the new landmark to the rest of Beijing. By car, Beijing Capital International Airport can be reached in approximately 45 minutes, while Beijing Railway Station is a short 15-minute drive from the hotel.
