W Beijing Chang’an

Introduction:Steps from the mystical Forbidden City, vibrant Silk Market, and famed Tiananmen Square, W Beijing – Chang’an lights up bustling downtown’s exclusive Diplomatic District with a potent remix of high style, exhilarating history, and pulsating nightlife.

Recharge at FIT gym, refresh in our heated indoor pool, Wet®, and recoup at AWAY® Spa. Then savor vibrant spices in our destination restaurants, including Yen, which serves up innovative Chinese cuisine, while the W / Lounge remixes cocktails with live DJs.

Luxe enough for ancient royals but updated with cutting-edge treasures, our 349 bold guest rooms offer iconic city views, signature W beds, and fully wired technology. Munchie Boxes, Bliss® Spa amenities, and top entertainment ensure imperial indulgence.

Below is my experience based on a one-night stay at the property.

My arrival experience: Warm welcome before being escorted to the room.

What I loved: The ultra contemporary design.

What about the food: The breakfast buffet is OK, while the lunch has a good selection of local and international food. I enjoyed great Italian pasta for lunch, before leaving for The Ritz-Carlton Beijing, Financial Street.

What about the service: Professional service from the front desk and attentive service at the restaurant. Attention to details, spotless clean rooms and a beautiful welcome amenity impressed me a lot. Definitely one of the better W hotels when it comes to both service and design.

What about the rooms: Ultra contemporary rooms, exactly as expected from a W. The soft, comfortable W Signature bed, the separate rainshower, the lovely Bliss products and a huge bathtub next to the bed.
