Marriott hotels in Beijing provide a uniquely warm welcome to this extraordinary city, the centre of Chinese culture and commerce, where glittering skyscrapers and historic sites sit side by side. Beijing’s tourist attractions and facilities were completely overhauled for the Olympics, so now is a great time to visit. There’s a wealth of museums and gardens, palaces, temples, tombs and mansions as well as brand new shopping centres, entertainment and leisure facilities. Check into one of our Beijing hotels, then set out to explore. Delve deep into Chinese history or enjoy the best of modern China. Start with some of China’s most famous sights – the Forbidden City (the former Imperial Palace) is literally at the centre of the city. The Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square and the Summer Palace are other must-sees. The Great Wall is an easy day trip from Beijing. For shopping, try the Beijing Silk Market, Liulichang antiques market and the open-air weekend market at Panjiayuan Jiuhuo Shichang, or the Oriental Plaza and The Village for brand stores. And never far from any of our hotels, Beijing markets are a delight. Try Donghuamen Night Market for sizzling street food. At the end of a busy day’s exploration, it’s a real pleasure to return to the comfort of one of our Marriott hotels in Beijing.
