Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group will manage a luxury hotel in Beijing located in a traditional hutong quarter close to Tiananmen Square.
The hotel, Mandarin Oriental Qianmen, Beijing, is being developed by Beijing Tianjie Group Company and is expected to open in 2018.
The traditional Qianmen East Hutong Quarter is currently undergoing preservation and regeneration. Hutongs date back to the 13th century and comprise courtyard houses connected by narrow lanes and alleyways.
Guests can expect to stay in landscaped courtyard suites and experience the traditional Beijing way of life within the labyrinth of alleys and lanes.
Facilities within the hotel will include multipurpose function rooms, indoor swimming pool, fitness centre and spa. For F&B options, there will be an all-day dining concept with a roof terrace, a Chinese restaurant, a lobby lounge, a traditional tea lounge and a Mandarin cake shop.
