Fairmont opens its first hotel in Western China

Updated 2016-12-23 13:59:10 chinadaily.com.cn

Luxury hotel operator Fairmont Hotels & Resorts launched its first property in Western China on December 21, 2016.

Fairmont Chengdu, located on Tianfu Middle Avenue in Chengdu, Southwest China's Sichuan province, offers luxury experience for both business and leisure travelers. Fairmont already operates properties in Shanghai, Beijing, Kunshan and Nanjing.

Prime location

The hotel neighbors major local business facilities and shopping malls, such as the Century City New International Convention & Exhibition Center and Global Center. It is a 25-minute drive to Shuangliu International Airport and steps away from metro station with easy access to Tianfu Square, the upcoming Tianfu International Airport, and the fast developing South CBD zone.

Food lover's paradise

Four restaurants with seven unique food and beverage concepts will be available in the hotel. Spectrum, an all-day dining restaurant at lobby level, offers a tempting array of Asian and Western cuisines served throughout the day. Cube combines a lobby 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 prefer authentic Sichuan food, Chang Yi, the Chinese restaurant on the fourth and fifth floors, will offer spicy delicacies for adventurous palates. Along with its unique cuisine, guests will also savor the arts, culture and history of Sichuan. Serving up sweeping panoramic views of the city, Manhattan (to open in mid-2017) occupies the top floors and will be one of the highest restaurants and bars in the city. Manhattan will be a fantastic escape to the vibrant era of 1920s American jazz with its Great Gatsby inspired décor and ambience.

Ambassador for local art

Stepping into the lobby, guests will be enthralled by a masterpiece – Qianli Yanxia Jinshuitou, or Gorgeous Cloud and Waters in Distance, a spectacular Shu embroidery landscape. Shu is the ancient name for Sichuan. The embroidery is a masterful blend of traditional landscape painting, hand-woven tapestry, and modern photography. The original painting was created by digital ink artist, Lu Jun, by recording color pigments dropping into water and combining the results into a fascinating artwork. Later, local artist, Yang Dequan, the former director of the Shu Embroidery Workshop, recreated this masterpiece from the original picture. This form of Shu embroidery embodies the intricate skills and knowledge passed down over generations, and years of painstaking practice by two major artists. The artwork, which took two years for the artists to complete, is regarded as the largest Shu embroidery piece in China. Presenting this artistic centerpiece and also showcasing a number of local artists, Fairmont Chengdu is proud to be a cultural ambassador for Sichuan arts and crafts.

World-class facilities and contemporary elegance

Offering stunning views of the fast-changing city skyline, Fairmont Chengdu will deliver a world of contemporary elegance throughout its 336 guest rooms and suites. An ideal venue for global conferences, major product launches, spectacular weddings and gala dinners, Fairmont Chengdu has 11 dedicated function areas to choose from. The 730 square meter Fairmont Ballroom features natural daylight, an adjoining VIP room and a designated lift to provide easy access for large equipment or automobiles. From the initial enquiry to the departure of guests, a seamless process delivered with the highest level of professional service ensures each event at Fairmont Chengdu is a remarkable and memorable success.

First Fairmont Residences in China

As part of the Palm Springs International Center, the Fairmont Chengdu Residences offer the first branded luxury apartment complex in Chengdu. This is the first Fairmont Residences in China. The development is managed by Fairmont with its exclusive concierge services. Residence owners are invited to participate at the highest level of the Fairmont President's Club. Along with special benefits and privileges such as room upgrades and exclusive preferential room rates, owners also enjoy an exceptional level of personalized service and attention at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts worldwide.
