Surrounded by majestic mountains and a beautiful lake in northern China, Jixian is considered "the back garden of Beijing and Tianjin," a retreat for all travellers. With the arrival of the Jixian Marriott Hotel, visitors can now experience 5-star service and amenities at the area's first international property. The hotel is breaking ground in more ways than one as Marriott's first to carry the Goji Kitchen+Bar dining concept and as the country’s Green Building, focusing on low-carbon emission using carbon-footprinting technology. While historic attractions such as Dule Temple and the Great Wall Huangyaguan are nearby, this luxury hotel forges into the future with state-of-the-art meeting facilities and business-friendly services. Guest rooms are elegant, functional and feature the latest in technology including an LCD TV, iPod/iPhone dock and high-speed Internet.
