Accor has opened its 1,100th hotel in Asia Pacific, with the launch of Sofitel Beijing Central, located in the heart of Beijing’s civic and diplomatic area. Its design sees a marriage of modern French art de vivre and the capital’s resplendent imperial history, rich culture and storied traditions. The hotel features 345 spacious luxury rooms and suites, with Sofitel Club floors providing generous circular bathtubs and access to the brand new Club Millésime Lounge that will be launched towards the end of 2019. The property boasts three impressive dining outlets including an all-day dining restaurant attached to an outdoor garden, which focuses on Western and international cuisine with a French twist; a signature Chinese Restaurant; and a lobby lounge, which provides afternoon tea and evening cocktails. The hotel’s recreational facilities include a day spa, fitness center and stunning indoor pool.
