This early-twentieth-century Beaux Arts "oasis filled with old-world charm" is near the Forbidden City, ergo the perfect location score. Its vaulted lobby has knotted rugs, silk-tasselled cushions, and gold leaf. "The Writers Bar epitomizes the hotel," which is "elegant, refined, and classy, with courteous staff." Enjoy "a spectacular buffet" at East 33. "Whenever you return, it feels like coming home."
