The As­cott

Liv­ing abroad has never been so stylish

City Weekend - - What's In It -

It’s like stay­ing in a ho­tel, but with that ex­tra homey feel­ing. The As­cott Lim­ited is a mem­ber of Capita Land. It is one of the lead­ing in­ter­na­tional ser­viced res­i­dence owner-op­er­a­tors with more than 500 prop­er­ties in over 120 cities span­ning more than 30 coun­tries across the Amer­i­cas, Asia Pa­cific, Europe, and the Mid­dle East. Here, As­cott Bei­jing, As­cott Raf­fles City Bei­jing, and As­cott River­side Gar­den Bei­jing have been pro­vid­ing trav­el­ers and ex­pats with a home away from home they can call their own. With all the com­forts of a lux­ury ho­tel, in­clud­ing break­fast ser­vice, house­keep­ing, se­cu­rity, and concierge, the As­cott also has the added ben­e­fit of a fully-func­tion­ing kitchen for those days when even the tasti­est restau­rants just can’t com­pare to your fam­ily recipes.

“As an in­ter­na­tional com­pany, our ser­vice and property man­age­ment are con­sis­tent at home and abroad, but we add lo­cal el­e­ments in dif­fer­ent cities. For ex­am­ple, in China, we have spe­cial food and tra­di­tional Chi­nese cel­e­bra­tions dur­ing Chi­nese fes­ti­vals. We of­fer business trav­el­ers and ex­pa­tri­ates a home away from home, where you can re­lax and recharge. We aim to pro­vide all our res­i­dents and guests with per­sonal space, pri­vacy, and com­fort. In our ser­viced res­i­dences, we want the res­i­dents to feel that they are part of a friendly com­mu­nity and sup­port net­work where ev­ery­one knows and treats them like old friends, or even fam­ily. It is their home where they can to­tally re­lax and be them­selves. Mean­while, we have an ‘As­cott Host’ at all our prop­er­ties. The main role of the As­cott Host is to do their ut­most to help new-ar­rivals set­tle in their new city of res­i­dence. The hosts will con­tact long-term guests to know about their life­style, habits, and re­quests, so they can ar­range proper room ser­vice. The hosts will use their lo­cal knowl­edge to help guests solve any prob­lems and in­te­grate into the new en­vi­ron­ment as soon as pos­si­ble. For ex­am­ple, we had an Amer­i­can guest who was look­ing for an in­ter­na­tional pri­mary school for his son. The As­cott Host gave him rec­om­men­da­tions with a lot anal­y­sis of the lo­cal schools. The Hosts of­fer brochures in Chi­nese and for­eign lan­guages about the nearby com­mu­ni­ties, such as mar­kets and shops, and some­times will also show them around.” Alex Wang, Vice Pres­i­dent, Prod­ucts & Tech­ni­cal Ser­vices, China, As­cott & Area Gen­eral Man­ager, North China, As­cott.

All of the As­cott prop­er­ties are lo­cated in the cen­ter of the city, of­fer­ing res­i­dents a con­ve­nient lo­ca­tions to the sub­ways and most shop­ping cen­ters along with fea­tures that’ll make your life in Bei­jing so much more sooth­ing like an in­door swim­ming pool and fit­ness cen­ter are pro­vided to help you stay in shape and un­wind af­ter work and a play area just for kids.

While each property is dif­fer­ent with its own unique fa­cil­i­ties and de­sign, one thing they all have in com­mon is ser­vice. They man­age the small de­tails of your day-to-day life so you don’t have to, be­cause life is about liv­ing.
