Written by editor

Hilton Worldwide and Hilton Hotels & Resorts today opened Hilton Chengdu, the first of the global hospitality company’s 11 hotels in the pipeline in the city of Chengdu, China.

Hilton Worldwide and Hilton Hotels & Resorts today opened Hilton Chengdu, the first of the global hospitality company’s 11 hotels in the pipeline in the city of Chengdu, China. Marking the entry of the Hilton brand in the city, Hilton Chengdu is the 30th Hilton branded hotel to operate in China, and adds to Hilton Worldwide’s portfolio of over 60 hotels operating in the Greater China region. Hilton Chengdu is owned by George Seaton Real Estate Co., LTD and managed by Hilton Worldwide.

“Chengdu is a rapidly developing city with tremendous growth potential,” said Bruce McKenzie, senior vice president, Operations, Greater China & Mongolia, Hilton Worldwide. “In addition to having a rich cultural heritage and scenic views, Chengdu is a major transportation hub and a gateway to inland areas including the Yangtze River Delta region. The capital of Sichuan province is also a growing MICE destination and we are pleased that Hilton Chengdu has joined our portfolio as our 66th hotel in Greater China.”

Hilton Chengdu’s eye-catching architecture is courtesy of world-renowned design firm, Atkins, which was also behind high profile projects such as the development of downtown Dubai and the Eiffel Tower light displays. The hotel building is capped with crystal-like structures and at night-fall, visitors are treated to a light show put together by the same company that was responsible for the famous light displays at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. The interior of the hotel draws inspiration from the galaxy and features different lighting installations set against a lobby that boasts a three-storey high ceiling.

Hilton Chengdu is located in the new CBD area of Chengdu, opposite the rapidly expanding Tianfu Software Park and close to the Century City Convention Center, which is the latest International Exhibition & Convention Center.

Hilton Chengdu’s 395 rooms and suites emulate Sichuan design elements while offering modern features.

Recreational facilities at Hilton Chengdu include a full service spa, a well-equipped 24-hour fitness center and a rooftop swimming pool.
