Beijing Aman

Price per night: RMB 3700 - 4400

One of the most luxurious resort chains in Asia, Aman arrived in Beijing in 2008. Located on a premium site next to the Summer Palace, this resort is perfect for relaxing and exploring the numerous nearby historical sites. Traditional courtyard structures which once housed the imperial kitchen of the Summer Palace have been converted into gorgeous, spacious rooms with wood floors, three-story-high ceilings, and classic Ming-style furniture. There's also a great spa, movie theater and three high-end restaurants.

Westin Beijing Chaoyang

Price per night: RMB 3500 - 4800

Nearest metro: Liangmaqiao

One of Beijing's newest five-star hotels, the capital's second Westin offers stylish, modern rooms in a central location with quick airport access. Public spaces feel corporate but rooms have a nice homey touch with white orchids, Chinese artwork, and furniture accents, while bathrooms are spacious with separate tubs and showers. Some rooms have terrific views of downtown Beijing. A luxurious spa, along with a well-equipped gym and large swimming pool, make for standout amenities. Check out the steakhouse.

Grand Hyatt Beijing

Price per night: RMB 3800

Nearest metro: Wangfujing

Book the Grand Hyatt Beijing

Great location above Oriental Plaza Mall and a stone's throw from Wangfujing and Tiananmen Square / Forbidden City. Standard rooms are spacious and well-equipped, service second to none.

Designed by famous Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and opened in 2008, this funky boutique hotel's 99 contemporary guest rooms are among the largest in Beijing.

Book the Beijing Park Hyatt

Nearest metro: Guomao

Towering over Beijing's Central Business District, this gargantuan new 66-story hotel boasts expansive views over downtown Beijing.

The 66th-floor China Grill offers delicious, if pricey, steaks and raw seafood, while the 6th floor Xiu offers reasonably-priced cocktails and live entertainment.

Park Hyatt.

Kerry Centre Hotel

Price per night: RMB 1300 - 1450

Book the Kerry Centre Hotel

Nearest metro: Guomao

Now showing a few signs of age, the Kerry Centre is still well-regarded for its service and remains a popular choice for business travelers. Executive floors have far roomier bathrooms and added luxuries like free Internet, Bose CD players, huge plasma TVs and DVD players. The hotel also boasts a great health club. Check out in-house restaurant Horizon for its scrumptious dim sum lunch buffet and the bar Centro for fantastic (if pricey) cocktails.

Hotel Cote Cour SL

Price per night: deluxe suite RMB 2668

Nearest metro: Dongsi

This 14-room boutique gem set around a 500-year-old courtyard mixes traditional Chinese charm and contemporary chic. Expect flat screen TVs, free WiFi and a swanky lounge where the chef cooks up whatever is fresh from the market that day. Though not as spacious as the suites, the Deluxe Superior (number 203) is the room to book, with higher ceilings and bustling street views. A second launch hotel by the same folks is in the 798 Art District.

Hotel Kapok

Price per night: RMB 500+

Book the Kapok Hotel Beijing

Nearest metro: Wangfujing

Conveniently located in a quiet neighbourhood close to Wangfujing and the Forbidden City, this Chinese take on funky boutique wraps its distinctive milky-green latticed frame around a five-storey former government building. Designed by influential local architect Zhu Pei, the 89-room hotel flips the traditional hutong concept on its ear - re-working the system of courtyards and public spaces in the vertical for the modern-day traveller. Glass corridors wrap around a central courtyard leading to the 27 suites and 62 standard rooms, some with private pebble courtyards. Service can be sketchy, but great value considering the location.
