Concierge.com's insider take:

Beijing's highest hotel is a metaphor for China's upward economic push. Managed by Shangri-La, it occupies the top 16 floors of Beijing's tallest tower (called the China World Tower) on the main drag leading toward Tiananmen Square. The public spaces are bathed in propitious gold lighting, reflected in paneled glass and cream-colored marble. The building's height—topping 1,000 feet—is on display throughout: Floor-to-ceiling windows in the rooms and restaurants provide magnificent views across the capital. The 278 guest rooms and suites (located on floors 67 through 77) feature more gold decor, this time paired with warm browns, as well as wall-hung plasma TVs, iPod docks, and Nespresso coffee machines; Wi-Fi is complimentary. Spacious bathrooms have dark marble tubs, rain forest showers, and L'Occitane bath products. For an even more elevated high, visit the Adam Tihany–designed Grill 79 restaurant and the preferred cocktail lounge of Beijing shakermakers, Atmosphere, on the 79th and 80th floors.—Gary Bowerman
