Hidden away down a darkened alley, just off one of Beijing's most popular nightlife strips and well-known gay clubs, the multi-colored glowing windows of the Hotel G at first gave locals cause for pause. The hotel's name "G" has been anglicized from the Mandarin jì meaning "the extreme," and the boudoir-style interiors follow suit with outrageous crystal chandeliers, damask stenciled walls, Hollywood glam photos and mirrors, mirrors everywhere. The oversized bathtub in the black-and-white tiled bathroom is big enough for two and complete with L'Occitane amenities. Very much geared toward the jet-setting entrepreneur or socialite, your room key provides access to several nearby nightclubs and in-room massages can be arranged from the popular Dragonfly spa until late. If you don't give into your hedonistic urges entirely there is a small business centre with shiny new iMacs and complimentary secretarial services as well as a gym with all the latest Technogym equipment.
