AccorHotels has just unveiled the 200th property in Greater China with the introduction of the Fairmont Chengdu. The property is Fairmont Hotels & Resorts’ first property in Western China and this landmark hotel is located in the capital city of Sichuan province which is known for its rich history and cultural heritage.
The Fairmont Chengdu is strategically located at Tianfu Middle Avenue, the city’s “Hi-tech Zone”. It is also 25 minutes drive away from the Shuangliu International Airport and is in close proximity to the metro station that has easy access to Tianfu Square, the upcoming Tianfu International Airport, and the fast developing South CBD zone.
The hotel lobby in Fairmont Chengdu features a delicate handmade Shu embroidery landscape of the Qianli Yanxia Jinshuitou otherwise known as Gorgeous Cloud and Waters in Distance. The embroidery is a masterful blend of traditional landscape painting, handwoven tapestry, and modern photography. Its 336 guest rooms and suites offer stunning views of Chengdu’s skyline. MICE facilities include 11 meeting rooms and function spaces. The 730 square metre grand ballroom features natural daylight with an adjoining VIP room.
To wine and dine, the Fairmont Chengdu features four restaurants with seven different dining concepts - Spectrum, an all-day dining restaurant at lobby level, offers an array of Asian and Western cuisines. Cube combines a lounge, cocktail bar and Japanese restaurant into an innovative integrated space over three levels of unique architectural design. The first of its kind in Chengdu, Cube is an ideal venue for social activities and private salons. For guests who would like to experience a modern interpretation and style of Sichuan food, Chang Yi, the Chinese restaurant offers spicy delicacies for the adventurous palates. Along with its unique cuisine, guests will also savour the arts, culture and history of the Sichuan Province. Opening mid 2017 with sweeping panoramic views of the city, Manhattan occupies the top floors and will be one of the highest restaurants and bars in the city offering an escape to the vibrant era of 1920s with its art deco inspired décor and ambience.
