suites & rooms
Aman at Summer Palace, Beijing offers several types of accommodation. Suites surround an internal courtyard crisscrossed by stately pathways separating formal gardens, and are shaded by bamboo and indigenous trees. Aesthetic references draw upon the region and the Imperial period, and furniture and accessories are crafted from traditional materials. Floors are finished in Jin clay tiles polished to a deep lustre, and ceilings are mostly open to exposed wooden roof beams and structural columns. Simple, elegant and redolent of the past, rooms and suites also feature traditional wooden screens and bamboo blinds, creating a mysterious sense of peeking through the veil of time to the romance of another era.
Most of the ten Courtyard Guestrooms feature king-size or twin beds and Ming Dynasty-styled armoires. Bathrooms also feature twin vanities and separate shower and toilet facilities. View images

The Imperial Suite comprises three separate pavilions: a private pavilion, a living/study pavilion and a formal pavilion.

Adjacent to the reception room, which can be used for private meals, is a lounge featuring a series of drum stools, a tah bench and a coffee table. The bathroom includes a bathtub and two separate spaces with a dressing area in between. Each space contains a shower, toilet and dresser. The living/study pavilion is located along the western side of the private courtyard. The formal pavilion is a boardroom-style meeting room with seating for 14 people.
