The Beijing Winter Olympics will be held from February 4-20, 2022, with 7 major events, 15 sub-events, and 109 minor events. The Capital Indoor Stadium will undertake the short-track speed skating competitions.
The Capital Indoor Stadium uses the latest sound and light technology to create the "most beautiful ice". By adopting an aluminum alloy frame structure on the top of the stadium, 36 grid films of 37 square meters are suspended to form a giant projection screen of 1332 square meters. At the same time, laser projectors are placed in the four corners of the venue to project brilliant lights and beautiful pictures on the large screen. When the athletes dance on the ice, they feel like they are in a dream.

Mercure Beijing Zhongguancun is located at Zhongguancun St, the same street where the Capital Indoor Stadium is located. Taking a taxi, it is only 15 minutes away.
The hotel is also close to one of Beijing's must-see attraction - the Summer Palace. The Summer Palace, an imperial garden during the Qing Dynasty in China, formerly known as Qingyi Garden, is located in the western suburbs of Beijing, 15 kilometers away from the city, covering an area of about 290 hectares (2.9 square kilometers), adjacent to the Old Summer Palace. It is a large-scale landscape garden built on the basis of Kunming Lake and Wanshou Mountain, based on Hangzhou West Lake and absorbing the design techniques of Jiangnan gardens. It is also the most well-preserved imperial palace and imperial garden, known as the "Royal Garden Museum" .
