Atkins designs Hilton Chengdu Hotel

Hilton Worldwide and Hilton Hotels & Resorts opened Hilton Chengdu, the first of the 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 more than 60 hotels operating in the Greater China region. Hilton Chengdu is owned by George Seaton Real Estate and managed by Hilton Worldwide.

Atkins was responsible for Hilton Chengdu's architecture. The hotel building is capped with crystal-like structures and at night, there is a light show put together by the same company responsible for the light displays at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. The interior of the hotel was inspired by the galaxy and has different lighting installations set against a lobby with a three-story high ceiling.
