It features a master bedroom suite with its own living area, two additional bedrooms, a gym, library, media room, kitchen, and a nearly 2,700-square-foot balcony with a fire pit and plunge pool.
The hotel also has two restaurants, each with private dining; three lounges; the Tea Garden, where Four Seasons serves some of the world’s rarest teas; and a spa, pool, and gym. (+86.10.5695.8858, www.fourseasons.com/beijing)
