The historic Vanderbilt Hall was acquired by Grace Hotels in December 2010. It is a magnificent hotel with 33 luxurious rooms and suites plus a spa and fitness centre with indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Working with Chef Jonathan Cartwright of our sister restaurant in New England, The White Barn Inn in Kennebunk, Maine we are creating a gourmet restaurant and cocktail bar as well as a conservatory dining room serving breakfast and lighter meals both indoors and outdoors. The building dates from 1909 and was one of many mansions in the area owned by the Vanderbilt family. The hotel is open now and will be officially re-launched in spring 2011.
Grace Beijing is a member of the award-winning Grace Hotels® group. It lies in the heart of Beijing's famous 798 Art District, a thriving cultural centre that is one of the city's leading tourist attractions as well as a focal point for the world's fashion and art community. The hotel perfectly mirrors today's China with its subtle combination of modern and traditional. Under its former name 'Yi House' the hotel has already gained a local and international reputation and was named in the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler Hot List 2011.
