Presidential suite

US President Nixon stayed in the presidential suite at the Jinjiang Hotel on the 16th floor. It takes up the entire floor (500 square meters) and has a commercial kitchen, meeting rooms, an office and four bedrooms, including a separate room for Mrs Nixon.

Unlike other hotels, the presidential suite here is literally exactly that: It is not available to the public, no matter who you are or how much money you have, and is reserved solely for visiting heads of state. The rest of the time, it’s left empty.

Unfortunately, Nixon most likely didn’t get to enjoy the suite’s beautiful private balcony due to security concerns, but he liked the hotel so much that he would return to stay again in 1982 and 1993.
