“Chengdu is one of the fastest-growing cities in China, and we are excited to expand our presence in the country to the Western region,” said Jennifer Fox, president, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. “Its stature as an economic, transportation and communications hub of Western China, coupled with its cosmopolitan offerings and proximity to natural attractions ensures demand from both business and leisure travellers.”
The new contemporary hotel will feature 375 guestrooms and 60 residences and a selection of dining options, including a 39th-floor restaurant with panoramic city views. There will also be an expansive meeting space, a ballroom and a Willow Stream Spa.
The new Chengdu property is set to open in 2014.
