The world’s second-busiest airport, China’s Beijing Capital Airport, has just welcomed its first five-star hotel and conference facility, the Hilton Beijing Capital Airport. Beijing Capital Airport is celebrating the second anniversary of the grand opening of Terminal 3, the state-of-the-art international terminal that at the time of its opening was the second largest airport terminal in the world in terms of area covered and a showcase landmark for the expansion of Beijing as the gateway to China.

The 322-room Hilton Beijing Capital Airport is located right at Terminal 3 and offers seven restaurants and bars with 32 private dining rooms, two ballrooms, 21 boardrooms, executive concierge services, a luxury spa, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. In addition to balancing the needs of both international travelers and meeting planners, hotel designers aimed for a balance of international and Asian influences as well. The restaurant mix, for example, includes a wide range of offerings that run from fine Cantonese, served in all private dining rooms for the local business community, to prime aged steaks, to 24-hour service for late-night travelers.

Each ballroom has a private entrance, check-in, and networking or entertaining areas. The meeting rooms are directly connected to the ballrooms to make for easy and convenient breakout sessions, and include a mix of conference table and seating styles that are popular with both Asian and Western executive meetings. All meeting room areas are equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

Located a few minutes from Terminal 3 by free shuttle bus, the hotel is near the Express Rail station and is 16 minutes to the city center, and a 10-minute drive to the new China International Exhibition Center.
