Starwood Hotels and Resorts has been expanding aggressively in China.
In September, Starwood will open three hotels in China, The St. Regis Chengdu, Azure Qiantang (A Luxury Collection Hotel), and W Beijing, according to Hotel Chatter.
Opening on September 4th, The St. Regis Chengdu is part of a larger mixed-use development, Huahzi Plaza, amid a number of nearby shopping destinations, historic temples, and museums. As an homage to the brand’s New York City origins, the hotel is designed in an Art Deco style with Sichuan Chinese elements. The hotel features 279 luxury rooms and suites with a number of dining choices, as well as two bars.
Overlooking the Qiantang River in China’s Shangcheng District, Azure Qiantang features 205 rooms overlooking the Qiantang River or the hotel’s gardens. To take advantage of the views, each room has floor-to-ceiling windows. The surrounding area has a thriving arts scene as well as museums specializing in technology, tea, and silk.
Located in the heart of Beijing near the Silk Market and Tiananmen Square, W Beijing – Chang’An will debut on September 30th. With 349 rooms, the interior of the hotel features vibrant colors, patterns, and textures that put a modern twist on traditional Chinese art. The hotel features a FIT gym, live entertainment, cocktail lounges, and restaurants.
