Ritz-Carlton finds treasure trove of history in Xi’an
The new Ritz-Carlton, Xi’an has welcomed guests in one of China’s most historically important cities. Xi’an is one of the country’s four ancient capitals, as well as being home to 13 of China’s imperial dynasties and the UNESCO World Heritage listed Terracotta Army, giving it an ancient atmosphere that is brimming with charm and history. This is something that the Ritz-Carlton property is tapping into, offering guests an experience that draws on the city’s historic culture as well as giving them a truly contemporary taste of modern China at the same time.
Lisa Holladay, Global Brand Leader for The Ritz-Carlton, spoke of the opening, saying, “We are delighted to bring the legendary service of The Ritz-Carlton to Xi’an, a city that blends the majesty of the past with the pulse of the present, and the promise of the future. By creating a unique sense of place while also celebrating the vibrant cultural legacy of the destination, The Ritz-Carlton, Xi’an will offer guests and visitors from around the world a truly authentic experience.”
Old meets new in stunning Ritz-Carlton property
Perhaps unsurprisingly, this new hotel takes its cues from traditional Chinese architecture and decoration, with an opulent and sophisticated interior that harks back to a bygone era of timeless luxury. Local artists and artisans have been commissioned to produce artworks and patterns that proliferate throughout the hotel. The property’s 283 rooms are kitted out in Ritz-Carlton’s signature luxury style, but with subtle touches that remind guests where in the world they are.
Henry Lee, Chief Operations Officer & Managing Director, Greater China, Marriott International, spoke of what guests can expect in the hotel, saying, “We are extremely pleased to debut The Ritz-Carlton in historic Xi’an, and expand our portfolio in major cultural destinations in China. Affluent Chinese and international tourists traveling to Western China are increasingly seeking enriching experiences, and this opening reflects our continued commitment to provide those travelers with opportunities to explore destinations like Xi’an.”
These travelers can avail of the many facilities at their disposal in the Ritz-Carlton, Xi’an.
