The Ritz-Carlton, Xi’an is now open in the ancient provincial capital of Shaanxi, which is home to 2,000 Terracotta Warriors. Thousands of year ago, it served as one of China’s four ancient capitals and is the former home to 13 imperial Chinese dynasties. Today, the city is a crossroad to one of the country’s most important trading corridors. Guests of The Ritz-Carlton, Xi’an can witness the Terracotta Warriors, Great Wild Goose Pagoda and old City Walls.

Designed by Remedios Studio, interiors reflect the architecture, history and culture of Xi’an. To showcase the ancient capital further, the hotel will be playing traditional pipa music in the evening. Listeners can enjoy the tunes with drinks and snacks.

The hotel’s 283 guestrooms include 31 contemporary suites. The Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge, located on the 23rd floor, is accessible to guests who stay at the Club Floor.
