Opening in the first quarter of this year, the East Hotel in Beijing is looking to add a little spice to the East brand by moving it north from Hong Kong. Billed as a "business hotel with a life," its 348 rooms and 21 suites will have access to all the important things a business traveler needs: free Wi-Fi, a business center with individual working pods, accelerated paperless check-in, and of course a complete fitness center to work off the excess energy you've built up over a day of meetings.
The 'life' part of the East starts with Feast, Food by East, that fits into the business lifestyle. Focusing on crisp, well-prepared classic food, you'll be comfortable in a bustling environment where you won't feel out of place working on your presentation for the next day. Relax when you're done by listening to live performances in the separate bar, the perfect spot to wind down as your finishing up the day or getting ready for a night out. The East Beijing is guaranteed to give a fresh new face to the tried and true methods of East Hong Kong, its sister hotel.
