The refurbishment included 100,000 pieces gold leafs, 2,500 square metres of wallpaper, 4,000 liters of paint, 6,000 kilograms of wool, 250 square metres of fabric and 1,880 man hours. China World Hotel, Beijing’s newly refurbished conference hall is reminiscent of the hotel lobby, evoking the grandeur of Imperial China, yet projecting a welcoming and gracious atmosphere. The special fabric is designed to shimmer from afar, creating subtle hints of luxurious Asian influences in the overall look of the conference hall and extending into the pre-function areas.
To complement the look, the new carpet designs have a contemporary feel with rich, vibrant tones accentuating the colour scheme. Elegant, modern crystal wall sconces grace the walls and the existing crystal chandeliers have been enhanced in size.
China World Hotel, Beijing’s conference hall and its adjoining foyer are more than 2,000 square metres in size. The main hall can accommodate approximately 1,200 people in theatre-style seating and adjacent to the main hall are three stylish function rooms for smaller meetings and parties. With a dramatic 8-metre-high ceiling, the conference hall is a popular venue for conventions, exhibitions and grand social celebrations.
The 810-square-metre pillar-free Grand Ballroom and its adjoining foyer can be divided into four smaller venues. It can accommodate up to 600 people for theatre-style seating and offers a pillar-free conference hall, as well as 11 function rooms with a combined space of 4,600 square metres.
In addition to the existing facilities, the hotel re-opened its newly renovated Horizon Club Lounge in 2015. Spanning over 1,600 square metres, it is the biggest executive lounge in Beijing, offering a perfect venue for both business and pleasure. Its 756-square-metre lounge area, with seating for 126, includes a library and a dining area. While the lounge provides ample space and facilities for relaxing, a function area of roughly 500 square metres features six individual meeting rooms suitable for groups of 6 to 16 and is perfect for business.
