Four Seasons Arrives in Beijing with Style

Nov 9, 2012

Marrying Chinese influences and contemporary style, Four Seasons Beijing has opened its doors. Reminiscent of the city's Imperial Palaces, the hotel welcomes guests in a sunlit atrium. Artwork plays an important role in the hotel with a collection that showcases traditional Chinese art practices executed with new materials. Qin Feng’s piece Landscape of Desires No. 4 & 5 in the reception area combines the form of bas-relief with the brush and ink gestures of Chinese calligraphy alongside the separation of water and ink.

In the lobby entrance, Romancing the Metal, a copper installation from Jin Feng, merges calligraphy and sculpture on a stylized form. The Opus Lounge is home to Hong Zhu An’s ink and color works that explore Eastern and Western aesthetics. Meanwhile, Australian artist Jayne Dyer’s Butterfly Effect in Beijing 2012 comprises 400 polished and powder-coated stainless steel butterflies soaring up the main atrium wall from the Tea Garden to the skylight 217 feet above. Other works throughout the hotel range from sculpture in jade, marble, and bronze to glass works from Japan adorning walls.

Guests have access to a series of F&B venues, including the Opus Bar, evoking a private club atmosphere; Cai Yi Xuan restaurant, outfitted with eight private dining rooms; and Italian outlet Mio. Other amenities include a spa inspired by the architecture of traditional Chinese tea gardens and courtyards, as well as a pool, fitness center, an executive club lounge, and 35,000 square feet of event space.
