The five-star Hotel Maximilian officially opened in Beijing, China at the end of June.
This is the first Chinese property of the Frankfurt-based Steigenberger Hotel Group, who established a joint venture with Beijing Yun Bang Investment Trade Co. Ltd. to co-manage the hotel.
Located between the city centre and the Beijing Capital International airport, the hotel is part of the Audi Forum and the Audi Training Centre and a 20-minute drive from the airport.
The hotel offers 286 guestrooms, including 271 standard and deluxe rooms and 15 suites, with sizes ranges from 30 sqm to 614 sqm. Each room has a balcony, free high-speed internet access, and an LCD TV.
There are four restaurants available to guests: German cuisine in the Paulaner Maximilian Stube (the second Paulaner in Beijing); Chinese cuisine in the Spring Palace Restaurant; Chinese dishes in the Ingolstadt Café; and international dishes in the Café Berlin.

For meeting facilities, there are eight meeting and conference rooms on the second and third floor, with the largest room combination holding around 240 people. There is also a 506 sqm exhibition area in the connected Audi Forum. All meeting facilities are soundproofed and have natural daylight.
The hotel also has a gym, sauna, steam bath, whirlpool, plus a massage and beauty treatment room with acupressure and aromatherapy.
Puneet Chhatwal, chief executive of Steigenberger Hotels AG said, “We are convinced that the Steigenberger ‘quality made in Germany’ model will bring success on the Chinese market. China is an important focus within our strategy of expansion, and we are delighted to be able to build on our presence in this key global market.”
The group plans to open more properties in China, including Sanya in 2015, and Qingdao and Chongqing in 2016.
