Overview

Luxe high-rise in Chongqing's bustling business district, with lavish East-meets-West interiors and four restaurants

The Lowdown

Opulence and bling are the buzzwords at this towering hotel in Chongqing’s bustling business district. An East-meets-West theme carries through the 464 rooms, and all feature floor-to-ceiling windows and city views (at their best come neon-lit nightfall). The rooms are large (the smallest is 409 square feet), and they’re tricked out with throw pillows, silky bed covers and velour-covered chairs and couches. All bathrooms are cavernous and contemporary and feature separate tubs and rain showers. Book a Prestige Suite for extra space (624 to 753 square feet) and two TVs (one in the bathroom). The four restaurants cover a range of cuisines, from French to Japanese to traditional Chinese, Sichuan and Cantonese. Hit the spa for a treatment combining ancient Chinese wellness therapies and French products, or relax in the indoor pool or at the fitness center.

In the Area

Chongqing is a riverside city (both the Yangtze and the Jialing run through it), so a cruise is an excellent way to not only get your bearings but to see the city at its best: from the water. Head to Cháotiānmén Dock for departures from 7 p.m. Hongyadong is a slightly cheesy recreation of “old Chongqing,” but it looks very appealing when lit up at night. It’s home to 11 levels of shops, restaurants, a hotel and bars and clings to a hillside by the Jialing River. The Three Gorges Museum is a must for anyone wanting to better understand the region.
