Marriott Hotel opened the JW Marriott Zhengzhou in China.

Located in the Zhengdong New District between the Zhengzhou International Convention & Exhibition Centre and Henan Art Centre, the JW Marriott Zhengzhou Hotel is the newest luxury hotel in Zhengzhou. The 918-foot-tall structure is the latest addition to the city’s skyline. Situated between levels 38 and 55 of the building, the 416-room hotel is the first Marriott hotel in Henan province, and the seventh JW Marriott hotel in Mainland China.

The architecture is by Skidmore Owings & Merrill.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

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.
