St. Regis Chengdu eyes 2014 opening in China

The St. Regis Chengdu is set to open in July 2014. The hotel will be the 32nd St. Regis hotel worldwide, and the sixth in the Greater China region, following recent openings in Tianjin, Sanya, Lhasa and Shenzhen.

The hotel is located just steps away from Tianfu Square and the Chun Xi Road high-end retail area. The 29-story St. Regis Chengdu is part of the new Huazhi Plaza, a mixed-use development comprised of a distinctive and iconic cluster of four towers offering venues for residences, business, entertainment and shopping.

The St. Regis Chengdu’s design style infuses the Art Deco styling of the 1920s – when the flagship St. Regis opened its doors in New York City – with traditional elements of Szechuan culture and the dynamism of Chengdu. The Art Deco styling is augmented with traditional Sichuanese accents, modern architecture elements and pieces of art that are both custom-made and curated especially for the hotel. The detailing and styling is a catalyst between eras and cultures, offering East meet West philosophies and the fusion of classic elements with modern day luxury.
