Travelers to the prosperous city of Chengdu-- the gateway to China’s Sichuan province and home to the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base-- will soon have a new luxury hotel option when The Ritz-Carlton Chengdu opens its doors in summer 2013. (Despite its enormous size, the Sichuan capital is frequently listed as one of the most livable cities in China.) This will be the first hotel for Ritz-Carlton in Southwest China; indeed Ritz-Carlton will be the first international luxury hotel brand to plant its flag there. The company’s goal is to double its China footprint in three years’ time.
Located in Tianfu Square, The Ritz-Carlton, Chengdu will have 353 rooms, including 55 suites, with a contemporary design aesthetic inspired by Chengdu’s traditional courtyard homes. There will be a spa, fully-equipped gym, indoor swimming pool, extensive meeting and events space, and three restaurants including a gourmet Cantonese eatery with eight private dining rooms.
