Hilton Worldwide has opened Waldorf Astoria Chengdu, the company’s 200th hotel in Asia Pacific.
Located in the capital of western China’s Sichuan province, the new 289-room luxury hotel is housed within a high-end mixed-use development comprising a retail mall, offices and apartments.
“As Hilton’s 200th hotel in Asia Pacific, Waldorf Astoria Chengdu marks a key milestone in our company’s growth in this region in spectacular style,” said Martin Rinck, Hiltons’ president of Asia Pacific. “Our ambition is to be everywhere our customers want to be, as the most hospitable company in the world. With more destinations than ever before in Asia Pacific, including nearly 400 hotels in the pipeline, we’re on our way to achieving that.”
A 52-storey hotel is located in the Chengdu Hi-Tech Zone, the city’s new financial district. It features six F&B outlets including European and Chinese restaurants, a spa, 24-hour fitness centre and a 25-metre heated indoor pool on the 48th floor. For the MICE market there is grand ballroom and five meeting rooms with a combined area of more than 2,000m².
As well as being Hilton’s 200th hotel in Asia Pacific, Waldorf Astoria Chengdu becomes the third Waldorf Astoria hotel in China, following existing luxury properties in Beijing and Shanghai.
