EAST, Beijing (Běijīng Dōngyú) Review

Launched in 2012, EAST is the latest attempt by the people behind the Opposite House (a luxurious boutique wonder) to create a business hotel with style, a place to do business without the stiffness—note the communal networking space in the cafe-inspired lounge. Guest rooms are beautiful, light-filled, and done up in a charmingly contemporary and clean aesthetic. Rooms have dramatic accents, such as oak floors, headboard art, marble bathrooms, and huge windows. Note, too, the splashes of art throughout the chic bar, in reference to the hotel's proximity to the capital's art district, as well as the to-be-expected pool and gym, and some excellent dining options. Business travelers who want to be close to Wangjing or 798 couldn't ask for more; those who need to be elsewhere will appreciate the strategic location 20 minutes from both airport and downtown. There's also a vast mall next door with plenty of shopping and eating.
