Beijing, China—Reported by Coleman Bentley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
In the modern luxury accommodation industry the definition of “amenity” has recently expanded or, perhaps more accurately, exploded. No longer limited to thread-counts and French bath-products, a select set of hotel’s responded to the instant-access needs of their guests, taking full advantage of contemporary technology’s seemingly limitless possibilities. Leading the way is Beijing’s chicest hotel concept, The Opposite House, who, with the release of their HouseVibe iPhone/iPad app, has taken a bold leap into the future.
Not content to provide guests with idle time-killing games or available-everywhere weather and news functions, The Opposite House has created an app that is both entirely unique to them and surprisingly useful for guests. Including trip itinerary storage, concierge tips, and music streaming directly from the “Oppositehouse” music collection (featuring China’s newest talent), the HouseVibe app puts the best of Beijing in the palm of your hand.
Featuring 99 guest studios, 9 suites, and located within the private shopping mecca, Sanlitun Village, there is no excuse not to join The Opposite House in the rapidly evolving world of modern travel.
