BEI Zhaolong Hotel opened in Beijing last month as the first Joie de Vivre hotel in Asia. The property takes the place of the previous Zhaolong Hotel and offers more than 200 guestrooms across a design-heavy, luxurious space. Sixteen suites are available on the hotel’s top floors.
Amenities include in-room IPTVs loaded with the latest games, Nespresso machines, access to the property’s sustainable electric car and easy check-out via a QR code-enabled express check-out system.
On-site dining includes BEI Commune, a neighborhood restaurant and bar serving fresh and seasonal food all day alongside a selection of cocktails and teas. A grab-and-go counter provides free refreshments. The hotel hosts a daily happy hour for drinks alongside a buffet of salad and charcuterie.
