Summer Palace at China World Hotel, Beijing Makes List of World’s best

December 19, 2016 Accolades No Comments Email Email

China World Hotel, Beijing’s Summer Palace makes list of 1,000 premium restaurants in the world, 94 of which were acclaimed Chinese restaurants, that made La Liste 2017, a ranking of the world’s 1,000 best restaurants launched last year by France’s Foreign Ministry.  This is the second consecutive year for Summer Palace to receive the recognition it deserves.

La Liste is described as an “algorithm-based aggregator of food guides and reviews, crafting the perfect ranking of the world’s best restaurants.”

To come up with the final list, reviews from more than 300 guidebooks and publications, review sites, gourmet blogs and other social media are collated.

Each review is then given a standard grade from 0 to 100.  Each guidebook is also given a “trustworthiness index” out of 10 based on the opinions of chefs and trusted sources.  Then, all the standardised review scores for each restaurant are calculated and weighted according to the trustworthiness of each publication.

Finally, customer reviews are integrated for a total weighting of 25 per cent.

“This is a great honour for Summer Palace, as well as Chinese haute cuisine, by gaining global recognition.  I would like to thank my culinary and service team for their effort, and I believe that this award will inspire our team to delight our guests every time by creating engaging experiences,” said Mr Christopher Chia, vice president of Shangri-La International Hotel Management Limited and general manager of China World Hotel, Beijing.

Summer Palace combines a classic Cantonese menu with light, creative Huaiyang cuisine and places a strong emphasis on Chinese tea culture and fine wine with its sommelier’s exclusive selection of French Bordeaux vintages.  Summer Palace also serves a popular dim sum lunch daily.  Six elegant private dining rooms are available for a higher level of personalised service.  Its private-label signature selection of premium Chinese teas and culinary condiments make ideal gifts for loved ones back home.

China World Hotel, Beijing soars over the China World Trade Center complex, including the shopping mall, in the heart of the city’s diplomatic and business district.  Hailed as one of the first three hotels in mainland China to be awarded a Platinum Five Star rating by the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA), China World Hotel, Beijing has been named one of the world’s best hotels by both Condé Nast Traveller and Travel + Leisure magazines.

China World Hotel, Beijing has also been voted “Best Hotel in Beijing” by Euromoney, Frommer’s Guide and Finance Asia; “Best Business Hotel in Beijing” by Business Traveller China and Asia Pacific, TTG Asia, The Asset and Asian Legal Business; received the “Top Ten Business Hotels in China – Golden Pillow Award” from 21st Century Business Herald; and named one of “The Top 50 Hotels in China” by Forbes and Travel + Leisure China.
