A five-star hotel, Swissotel Beijing is located in the eastern part of China's capital city. It sits at the intersection of Dong Si Shi Tiao and Second Beltway East, which gives it easy access to the main tourist attractions in the city center, the embassy district, and business districts of the city. There is a subway station right outside the hotel. To the Chinese, the place is Gangao Zhongxin Jiudian, meaning Hong Kong-Macao Center Hotel. This is because the Chinese government's office in charge of Hong Kong-Macao affairs is based in here.
