BEIJING The recently opened Four Seasons Hotel Beijing offers a range of new venues for meeting groups visiting the capital city.
Highlights include the pillarless Imperial Ballroom on the fifth floor, which covers some 988 sqm and accommodates up to 1,000 guests. Five projector screens have been installed in the room, which can be divided into three smaller spaces and also comes with a pre-function area of 256 sqm.
The second, more “intimate” option is the 205-sqm Beijing Ballroom on the third floor, which has a capacity for 190 people. It can be partitioned into two and also comes with a 220-sqm foyer.
In addition, the hotel has 10 meeting rooms that can accommodate between 35 to 80 people within 43 to 80 square metres of space.
Other areas that may be booked for events and get-togethers include the Opus Lounge, Opus Bar and the Tea Garden.
Opus Lounge, a two-storey dining hall featuring an all-day menu of Asian and Western specialties, has a seating capacity of 87. Opus Bar, for more casual meetings, has room for 52.
The Tea Garden features an atrium wall elaborately fashioned with steel butterflies. The installation piece, inspired by the Chinese folktale Butterfly Lover, is by the Australian artist Jayne Dyer, exclusively commissioned by the Four Seasons. The Garden offers an intimate setting for small events, welcoming groups of 35.
Four Seasons Hotel Beijing is the hotel group’s third property to open in China this year, following Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai in September and Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou in July.
