InterContinental Beijing Sanlitun

Since its opening in 2016, the InterContinental Beijing Sanlitun has quickly become a fundamental part of the bustling Sanlitun shopping, nightlife, and entertainment district in China's capital. The striking, slender building is hard to miss, with its captivating LED light show dancing across the facade, featuring a hexagonal diamond pattern that resembles an elongated honeycomb.

Located near both the central business district (CBD) and diplomatic compounds, the hotel appeals to business travelers while also embracing the trendy Sanlitun neighborhood. Dining and leisure areas, as well as suites, maximize the breathtaking city views to the northeast.


The luxurious property effortlessly combines polished marble, wood, and modern furnishings, with stylish touches such as golden drop-cable lamps, blue glass light installations, cozy leather armchairs, and sleek vintage bicycles.


Highlights of the InterContinental Beijing Sanlitun


  • The unique, asymmetrical swimming pool on the fifth floor provides a serene environment for both swimming laps and lounging. Panoramic views through the floor-to-ceiling windows make it feel like you're swimming right into the Beijing skyline.

  • The grand, cathedral-like lobby is elegantly divided into separate lounges by brass cable bookshelves resembling harp strings. Enjoy premium tea selections in this stylish space.

  • A private room in the spacious 3,229-square-foot gym allows for easy solo workouts, but be sure to reserve in advance.

  • The hotel boasts five restaurants catering to various tastes, from classic Cantonese dishes to Spanish tapas. End your evening at the lively Top Bar, complete with a live band and terrace.

  • Upgrading to Club-level accommodations grants access to Club InterContinental on the 22nd floor, offering stunning views, complimentary breakfast, evening canapés, cocktails, and usage of the Enomatic wine-dispensing machine.


Insider Tips


  • Top Bar, adjacent to Top Tapas, is known for its international whiskey selections and local and imported beers. Tuesday nights are especially busy with two-for-one whiskey sours.

  • Club InterContinental members currently enjoy exclusive views from the 21st-floor lounge, but a rooftop bar is in the works.

  • Traffic jams are common in this popular area, especially on weekends, so plan extra time for travel.

  • The stylish staff uniforms, featuring cropped wide-legged culottes, low-cut sneakers, and black bowler hats, might lead you to confuse them with fashionable influencers visiting the city.




  • The best rooms, including the Presidential Suite, are located around the narrow northeast corner, offering incredible city views through floor-to-ceiling windows.

  • All 300 rooms include a large, white ceramic freestanding tub and a spacious shower, perfect for private relaxation without leaving your room or visiting the sandalwood-scented spa on the second floor.

  • The hotel's unique, flat-iron design results in non-traditional room shapes, such as the circular layout of the Classic Rooms, which feel both futuristic and cozy.


Dining Options


  • Ying Chinese restaurant serves modern Cantonese specialties in an open kitchen setting, seamlessly transitioning to the adjacent Ying Japanese restaurant, where guests can enjoy fresh noodles and kaiseki-style multicourse meals.

  • Char Dining Room and Lounge offers a variety of wagyu, Kobe, and dry-aged cuts, along with cutlery selections from Germany, Spain, and England, including French Laguiole.

  • Top Tapas provides hot and cold savory bites from Spain and beyond, making it an ideal spot for after-work or pre-dinner aperitivos. Sample Iberico ham while perusing a lengthy list of international wines.
