The renovation at The Peninsula Beijing, which is being done in stages, will see the first batch of new guestrooms available to guests in August, while the project will reach completion in completion in early 2017.
As part of the refurbishment, the hotel’s original 525 rooms and suites have been reduced to just 230 suite-style rooms, each offering a separate bedroom, living room, bathroom and dressing room. The hotel’s standard rooms average 65sqm, making them the largest in Beijing and among the most spacious in China. The rooms also feature in-room technology, free wi-fi, a valet box and a nail dryer.
The refurbishment has also seen the hotel’s Jing bar and restaurant revamped to include a private dining room, chef’s table and wince cellar, which can host private dinners for 12 people. Other redesigned areas included the lobby and the new tea seating area outside the Huang Time Chinese restaurant.
