Aman at Summer Palace, Beijing Hotel Review: The Aman at Summer Palace, a 250-year-old World Heritage site, is a perfect retreat for anybody looking for luxury and history in Beijing. An internal courtyard is encompassed by 8 guest rooms and 25 suites featuring an elaborate weave of pathways through a tranquil garden. Though design and architecture of the Ming Dynasty period make up the hotel's aesthetic appeal, the property also has modern elegance seen in the bamboo blinds and use of wooden screens within each spacious guest room. As for the cuisine within the property, there is a Chinese restaurant serving traditional dishes, while a French-Japanese dining room and Western grill surround a pond in the courtyard. From a lavish spa with beauty parlor to having a Chinese calligrapher on hand in the library, the Aman at Summer Palace in Beijing has it all.
