Proving that bigger is better when it comes to luxury hotel rooms, The Peninsula Beijing has super-sized its wow factor following a sweeping year-long renovation. The iconic five-star property is now the only all-suite hotel in Beijing, setting new standards of luxury accommodation in China with 230 suites, created from the original 525 rooms. With a standard entry level room at an average of 700 square feet, the suites are now the largest in the Beijing capital, and among the biggest in China.

The bespoke design is inspired by the interiors of private yachts blended with elements of traditional and modern Chinese style. Fans of sister property Peninsula Hong Kong’s expansive suites will experience a comforting déjà vu with Peninsula Beijing’s room design, floorplan, services, and amenities. Even standard rooms offer a separate living room, fresh flowers and treats, his-and-hers sinks, and a dressing room with a nail dryer and discreet valet box. A variety of premium suites—including two-story, 769 square-foot loft-style apartments and the grand 1,776 square-foot Beijing Suite—have home theaters and separate dining areas.

To keep guests wired, all accommodations include complimentary Wi-Fi and free phone calls, both local and international. For added convenience, The Peninsula Beijing is one of the first hotels in China to offer a 24-hour check-in and check-out service for all guests, allowing guests to arrive and depart at any time without additional cost. In the Peninsula tradition, a fleet of Rolls-Royces chauffer guests to the front door where they’re greeted by bell staff in starched-white uniforms and caps.

Each afternoon, high tea is served in the grand lobby, which is also the scene for a lavish new Sunday brunch buffet of imported lobster, shrimp, shucked oysters, and a deli station of cold cuts, cured and smoked fish, and premium cheeses. The hotel’s signature Chinese restaurant, Huang Ting, prepares refined Cantonese cuisine (ask for the special dim sum menu), while Jing resembling a mystical Chinese garden and specializes in modern Western dishes paired with fine wines.

To celebrate the relaunch of The Peninsula Beijing, guests can experience the all-suite Peninsula Beijing at introductory rates until October 31, 2017, including flexible check-in, spa and dining credits, welcome tea service, and packing/unpacking services.
