As summer nears, and with fall not far behind, Peninsula is hosting an array of events at various properties across the globe. Here’s the latest:

The Peninsula Beijing

On May 31, The Peninsula Beijing completes its top-to-bottom renovation to become the only all-suite hotel in the city. The renovation reduced the hotel’s room count by more than 50 percent to create Beijing’s largest rooms. In a major commitment to contemporary Chinese art, the hotel will introduce Beijing’s first artist residency with a purpose-built rooftop studio and guestroom, with artwork by the executive director of Beijing’s Museum of Contemporary Art exhibited in the hotel’s gallery.

As part of the new Keys to the City program, The Peninsula Beijing introduces a line-up of guests-only experiences such as access to unrestored, tourist-free areas of The Great Wall of China and the Temple of Heaven.
