JW Marriott has announced the opening of JW Marriott Hotel Qufu in Shandong province, China.

Owned by Shandong Luneng, the property is an architectural masterpiece by Kai Cui – the academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

The hotel’s distinctive exterior profile, with its elegant classical Chinese rooflines, blends seamlessly with its surroundings. 

Sixteen Chinese chimes at the front porch are a visual reminder of both the ancient percussion instrument, as well as the history of Chinese culture and music. The spectacular lobby features a stylised moon gate and a statue of Confucius under a graceful ginkgo tree, in commemoration of the lectures “The Great Teacher” gave.

JW Marriott Hotel Qufu offers 197 modern rooms and suites, comprising 188 individual guestrooms and 9 complex suites.

All guestrooms, spanning from 45m² to 98m² with 3.2-meter-high ceilings, are tastefully appointed with elegant Chinese accents and are equipped with the latest in-room technology, walk-in closets, and modern amenities to ensure guests’ every comfort. 

JW Marriott Hotel Qufu also offers a diverse range of artfully selected and locally inspired dishes and beverages. At the hotel’s signature restaurant, Residence, guests can experience the time-honoured cuisine of the region, including Cantonese dishes and the traditional Kongfu cuisine which focuses on culinary refinement, also known as “Dishes of the Confucian Mansion”, complemented by traditional Shandong dishes.

JW Kitchen is a smart casual outlet featuring an open kitchen, serving local and international cuisines, healthy juices and the chefs’ daily recommendations in a relaxed, contemporary atmosphere.

The Lounge is an intimate and idyllic place to linger and enjoy views of Six Arts Atrium. Guests can savor JW Wine Ambassador services as well as the exquisite afternoon tea. 

For guests who wish to maintain their wellness routines during their visit, the 24-hour Fitness Centre is a natural sunlight-filled space with advanced cardio and strength training equipment.
