15:42Nanjing Opens In China's Ancient Capital
|Shangri-La Hotel, Nanjing, the 88th addition to Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, has opened in the center of vibrant Gulou District of Nanjing city. Known as one of China’s four ancient capitals and previously home to six dynasties, Nanjing forms the “Golden Triangle” on the lower Yangtze River making it a prime destination for business and leisure travelers with its thriving economy and historical sites that encompass the UNESCO classified Imperial tombs of the Ming Dynasty and the mausoleum of Dr. Sun Yat Sen, ‘father of the Republic of China.’|
The 450-guestroom Shangri-La Hotel, Nanjing overlooks the pristine Xuanwu Lake, which features a park – dotted with temples, pagodas, pavilions, teahouses and other attractions – and is situated next to an underground train network that easily accesses every direction of the city. From the hotel, travelers are a ten minute drive to the Nanjing Railway Station and a 45 minute car journey to Nanjing Lukou International Airport.
Inside the 45-story hotel, the energy of the bustling district is captured through expansive windows. The lobby, adorned with chandeliers and paintings of plum blossoms – a recurring image throughout the hotel – is a destination in itself. Taking pride of place in the airy hub of Shangri-La Hotel, Nanjing is a bronze installation of children throwing sandbags. Entitled Xi Ya Zi the art piece was specially created by Xiao Xiaoqui, one of China’s foremost sculptors who specializes in portraying children in action.
The guestrooms at Shangri-La Hotel, Nanjing range from 45 to 72 square meters (about 484 to 775 square feet) and include 21 serviced apartments. Designed using earth tones with throw pillows and textured headboards to exude softness; artworks and furniture pieces stand out in the open layout that is complemented by views of the Xuanwu Lake.
Other aspects of the room design include the latest technology and complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as a spacious bathroom accented by a double vanity, separate shower and marble flooring.
In keeping with the muted color palette, the 26 contemporarily styled suites occupy between 90 and 261 square meters (about 968 and 2,809 square feet) and are furnished with the modern traveler in mind.
