Beijing’s Tallest Hotel—China World Summit Wing Opens

 

August 16th, Beijing’s number one skyscraper­­­—the 330-metre tall China World Trade Center Phase 3—has come into use. Located between the 64th and 81st floors of the China World Trade Center Phase 3, the China World Summit Wing has proudly opened its doors to visitors. Overlooking Beijing from the hotel, one sees an infinitely beautiful panoramic view. It will be a new landmark in an ancient city.

The China World Summit Wing is located in a uniquely advantageous position, a convenient distance from all the major places of interest in the city. Getting to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square is only a 15-minute drive. Three days before opening, the hotel’s executive rooms were all already booked. The guests were mostly business people from around the China World Trade Center.

The décor of the lobby is done primarily in gold tones. Four sets of chandeliers from the Czech Republic hang from the centre of the ceiling. Each chandelier weighs 500 kilos, has a diameter of four metres and is composed of colorful glass “bubbles” blown by approximately 600 workers. The common space of the hotel houses over 100 pieces of art from over 15 artists from China, Singapore, United States and other areas. Each piece of art took about three and a half months to complete, adding a rich artistic atmosphere to the hotel.

There is a high-speed elevator from the lobby to the roof. The elevator uses a touch screen system and one can even feel the pressure from the change in elevation as the elevator rapidly ascends. The roof cocktail lounge is dressed with French windows and offers at telescope at each one for guest use. From there one can take in a full view of landmark architectures such as the Forbidden City.

The hotel has a total of 278 rooms and suites located between the 64th and the 77th floor. The average room size is 65 square metres and all are equipped with French windows. Guests can enjoy the bar’s exclusive services from their rooms or travel to one of the four accompanying designer restaurants, two bars and lounges, or four exclusive private dining areas, one of which includes the viewing deck on the 81st floor. The summit ballroom is the largest pillarless ballroom in any Beijing hotel, with a capacity of over a 1,000 people. Chairman Rooms on the 79th floor and The Peak at the 81st floor are perfect places for high-end celebrations and business gatherings. In addition, Shangri-La’s famous hydrotherapy centre has settled on the 77th floor, making it the highest hydrotherapy centre in Beijing.
