Hyatt Hotels Corporation has opened the BEI Zhaolong Hotel, the first Joie de Vivre hotel in Asia. The 202-room hotel is a rebirth of the Zhaolong Hotel, which held a significant place in Beijing’s hospitality history since its original opening in 1985. Following an extensive renovation and re-imagination, the new BEI Zhaolong Hotel brings a contemporary perspective to the original property.
Technology and pop art elements evoke the spirit of the hotel and its target market of an upcoming generation in China. The hotel’s gallery hall displays contemporary local art showing the evolution of Chinese games, and throughout the hotel are immersive digital projections depicting the essence of old Beijing.
Drawing inspiration from its location, the hotel also houses BEI Commune, a casual neighborhood restaurant and bar. This all-day eatery, offering fresh, seasonal products and cocktails, is connected to a light and airy outdoor terrace covered by sunshades. On the same floor, close to reception, an all-day grab-and-go counter provides free refreshments for guests during their stay.
