With interiors Designed by Duncan Miller Ullmann, the hotel design acknowledges Zhengzhou as an ancient capital and the birthplace of the Chinese culture over 5,000 years ago.

Upon entry, the lobby’s stone floor repeats patterns from the building’s shape, which was inspired by traditional pagodas. Bronze metal accent finishes throughout the building pay tribute to the ancient Bronze Age in East Asia.

As guests move into the lounge, they are greeted with modern lanterns decorated with crystal shades. Historically influenced color tones are used in the furnishings that adorn the reception and lounge. The lounge offers views over the city skyline and Ruyi Lake.

These design influences weave up through the hotel into the guestrooms, suites and Presidential Suite.
