The Peninsula Beijing

Hotel Overview

A cultural yet contemporary metropolis, Beijing is a distinguished icon of a city representing a balance of rich Chinese history and modern day China. With architectural masterpieces to marvel at, the historic Great Wall to climb, as well as hidden and forbidden parts of the city to explore. Beijing has something for everyone. Better yet, The Peninsula Beijing is at the heart of all the action and our Concierge team will make sure you don’t miss anything.


The Peninsula Beijing offers a career rather than simply a job, providing continuous learning and development opportunities to its staff. The hotel’s English syllabus and service modules build strong communication ability and core business competencies, while our group-wide management development programmes and cross-exposure opportunities broaden professional horizons.

Talent and unsurpassed service quality is The Peninsula Beijing’s most valuable asset and this is recognised through attractive remuneration and a supportive, professional working environment. We invite you to join our family, to share our company’s caring philosophy, to grow with us and explore the challenging field of luxury international hotels.


The Peninsula Beijing has been the recipient of some of the most prestigious awards both locally and internationally, including the revered Jin Ding award from the Beijing Tourism Bureau.
