Grand Hyatt Beijing (Běijīng Dōngfāngjūnyuè jiǔdiàn) Review
The wow factor at the Grand Hyatt Beijing—located close to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City—comes via its huge glass facade and even more extraordinary Olympic-size swimming pool: surrounded by lush vegetation, waterfalls, and statues, it has a "virtual sky" ceiling that imitates different weather patterns. Guest rooms, decorated with comfortable cherry-wood furnishings, and many with floor-to-ceiling windows, aren't quite as inspired, but still grand and Hyatt enough. The gym is full of state-of-the-art exercise equipment. Big draws are the seven restaurants and bars, including the Redmoon, one of the chicest watering holes in the city, and the Made in China restaurant, home to one of the best Peking ducks in the city. It turns out that the hotel is actually part of a mammoth complex that includes an upscale shopping mall, cinema, and a wide range of eateries—so the wows keep coming.
