The newest luxury hotel in North-east China, The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin, has officially opened its doors. The art deco-style property is the hotel operator’s 10th property in China.
The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin sits at the historical heart of the former British concession and modern downtown business district by the Haihe River. The property takes its architectural inspiration from the neo-classical style of the early 20th century, with stately hotel rooms arranged around an expansive courtyard in the European tradition.
The hotel features 277 opulent guest rooms and 53 suites created by luxury hospitality designer, Pierre-Yves Rochon. Many of the comfortable chandeliered rooms are complete with buttressed stone outdoor balconies and views of downtown Tianjin.
The striking interiors mirror the style of European palaces, with high ceilings and expanses of marble mirror. The walls feature hand-painted murals of traditional European scenes and Chinese imperial paintings, creating a sense of history and place.
The hotel’s four destination eating and drinking establishments include the classically-styled Lobby Lounge; all-day world cuisine dining venue, Zest; Cantonese restaurant, Tian Tai Xuan; and the stylish Flair lifestyle bar and lounge. A 1050m² Grand Ballroom and courtyard offers an ideal setting for corporate meetings, events and weddings.
The hotel also offers a new Ritz-Carlton Club, designed as a residential concept, which features an open kitchen serving five food and beverage offerings throughout the day, a private dining room, a lounge and a dedicated bar. The Ritz-Carlton Club Level service includes a dedicated concierge and private check ins.
Herve Humler, president and COO at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, says: “The opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin in one of China’s most strategically important cities reflects our desire to meet the growing Chinese appetite for international luxury hospitality experiences.
“The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin represents a major new destination opportunity that will accelerate the recognition by the luxury Chinese guests of our service commitment to create memorable experiences that stay with guests for life.”
