Mandarin Oriental Qianmen
Not the Beijing hutongs you're used to.
From Mandarin Oriental Qianmen Beijing
Opening: Fall 2018
With an expected 2018 opening in Beijing, the Mandarin Oriental Qianmen will take over a historic hutong neighborhood (a series of alleyways with courtyard-style residences) near Tiananmen Square.
The aim? To provide travelers with a peek into the past and an opportunity to experience historic Beijing accommodations -- albeit with the Mandarin's luxury spin.
Inside the private sanctuary, guests will find manicured gardens and traditional Chinese courtyards, as well as restaurants, bars, a tea lounge, cake shop, spa and traditional stone hutong homes.
And just outside? One aspect of a major neighborhood restoration project, the hotel will sit among privately owned residences and shops in a labyrinthine hutong that's ripe for exploration.
