1. Four Seasons Hotel Tianjin
With nine beautiful luxury hotels in key destinations across China, Four Seasons is perfectly positioned to support a Chinese getaway, whichever city you are heading for. Four Seasons Hotel Tianjin is surrounded by the buzz of a vibrant commercial district and is steps from the small lanes of historic French and Japanese neighborhoods.

Wherever you are in the world, Four Seasons hotels are consistently one of the best hotels in that city or resort. This means that most Four Seasons hotel room rates generally start at $500 – $1000 USD per night and because they don’t have a Four Seasons loyalty program, you will never be able to book a free stay by racking up and redeeming points, or by collecting points on your credit card and spending them on a Four Seasons hotel stay. It can’t be done. But you can get discounts at Four Seasons hotels and benefit from special rewards at Four Seasons hotels for no extra cost by booking your next stay via our luxury travel concierge.

The clay-aged cocktails have the unique taste of full-bodied fragrance, smooth entrance, sweet aftertaste, and more staying power.
