The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, opened The Grand Mansion, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Nanjing, in the capital of China’s Jiangsu province. The property is the brand’s seventh hotel in China.
The Grand Mansion is located on the Chanjiang Road, sharing its location with the Oriental Metropolitan Museum on the archeological site of the Jiankang Palace. It is near the Presidential Palace. The Grand Mansion has 158 guestrooms, including 15 suites and a Presidential Suite.
Led by I.M. Pei Architects with HBA Interior Design, the hotel’s design draws inspiration from Nanjing’s time as the nation’s capital during the Ming Dynasty and then again as the capital of the Republic of China in the early 20th century. It has residential-inspired interiors, an art collection, handcrafted textiles, chinaware and a collection of books on local history and culture in the Travellers’ Library, one of China’s largest hotel libraries with a collection of 3,000 books as well as local antiques and global treasures.
For dining, the property has the Xi Lounge, which offers a collection of teas; Xuan Ling Ge Chinese restaurant; and The Atrium, an all-day dining venue.
The Grand Mansion also has a range of leisure facilities, such as a fitness center, indoor heated pool and a spa.
For events, the property has a ballroom spanning nearly 6,000 square feet. There are also seven meeting rooms.
One of the original “Four Great Ancient Cities of China,” Nanjing is located near Shanghai, on the lower stretches of the Yangzi River.
