Situated in the heart of the Central Business District area of Jianye District, the hotel is close to Nanjing’s Olympic Stadium, Nanjing International Expo Center and 11 kilometers away from the Nanjing South Railway Station, China's high-speed rail network.

In the design of the property, BAMO's goal was to recognize the surrounding city while offering the luxuries of a five-star hotel. Chinese references were woven into the fabric of the hotel. Connected by bronze screens, marble columns add grandeur to the lobby and help transition the space to the lower, more intimate reception areas. Above, the lobby chandelier has glass beads that reflect in the black-and-cream stone floor. 

Designed to flow easily, the public spaces are connected by large passageways to accommodate groups of people. Wood paneling, upholstered walls, mirrors, and glass chandeliers furnish these larger spaces, along with consoles, seating areas, and lamps; while guestroom corridors have wood floors with individual carpets and runners.

Entrances into the guestrooms mimic the key elements of the lobby, complete with black lacquer panels and antique mirrors framed by red ribbons. Along with the silk-lined, walk-in closet, a Ming Green marble and nickel bathroom adds a touch of luxury. The guestroom itself has lacquered woods and tobacco-colored silk walls. The room has a study area. This portion of the room is centered around a contemporary, white lacquer desk with cabinets and shelves on three sides.

Complimentary Wi-Fi and Internet access are offered throughout the property.

SPIN created two restaurants: Jiu Jiu Yuan Chinese Restaurant and the Grill and Rye Bar. Inspired by the estate homes of ancient China, the former showcases local cuisine in a warm aesthetic. The interiors of the Grill and Rye Bar reinterpret Eastern architectural styles with intermingling Western influences.

The hotel also offers a special club floor consisting of 40 rooms with private entrance to the Club Lounge featuring three separate dining experiences, complimentary liquors, chocolates and cordials.

The hotel’s multi-purpose meeting space features two ballrooms, eight function rooms, and one VIP room. The Grand Ballroom is be able to seat up to 800 people, while the Junior Ballroom can hold up to 250 people.

The spa has 11 private suites, complemented by changing areas, personal showers, whirlpools and an adjacent fitness center. The fitness center is equipped with cardio equipment from Techno-Gym, free weights, an indoor lap pool, and studio space for Yoga and Pilates classes.

The hotel is located at No. 235 Middle JiangDong Road, Jian Ye District, Nanjing, China.
