The latest to join the elite group is the Sofitel Legend Peoples Grand Hotel Xian, located in the historic city of Xian, China’s capital through 13 dynasties and today an important cultural center where visitors flock to see the Terracotta Warriors. Sofitel renovated a landmark building that first opened in 1953 as the State Guesthouse, situated in gardens belonging to an imperial palace. Today the building is part of the Renmin Square hotel complex.

The Sofitel Legend Peoples Grand Hotel Xian is boutique size, with French touches like Hermes bath products and personal butlers. Facilities include a health club, an indoor swimming pool and spa. Dolce Vita, the Italian restaurant, has an open kitchen and a pizza oven. There’s also a lobby bar, where tea is served in the afternoon and the Louis XIII Bar on the top floor.
