With its sparkling exterior, you can’t miss this hotel at night. Inside, light remains a major theme; the lobby’s huge color-changing crystal chandelier blends the French fleur-de-lis with the kapok, Guangzhou’s floral emblem. Ruby-red lacquered vases, lampshades, chandeliers and flowers add daring accents throughout.
Bed and Bath
With upholstered headboards, framed photographs (black-and-white, with a splash of red), rich fabrics and sculptural furniture, the guestrooms have a distinctly Parisian vibe — especially with poetic phrases woven into the carpet. Luxuriate in Sofitel’s signature MyBed. The bathrooms feature a deep tub and separate shower; the toiletries come from Hermès.
Le Grill is as upmarket as steakhouses come — think ultra-prime cuts seared on an Argentine-style grill. Near the lobby the Mar-Tea-Ni Bar’s tea sommelier can recommend a specialist brew; those who require something stiffer can try tea-inspired cocktails. The nail bar offers champagne along with manicures and pedicures.
In the Area
Tianhe is home to Redtory — an art and design center in what was once Asia’s largest canned-food factory. Towering, twisted Canton Tower is colloquially known as Xiao Man’s Waist — a reference to a svelte Tang dynasty geisha. Head to its observation deck — 1,500 feet aboveground — for a bird’s-eye view of this sprawling Pearl River Delta metropolis or to use the lofty post office. Bubble cars circumnavigate its roof. Wander the tree-lined, sculpture-filled avenues of colonial Shamian Island; its charm makes it a popular backdrop for wedding and fashion photographs.
How to Get There
Our stay at Sofitel Guangzhou Sunrich was excellent. We reached early and the staff were cordial, they provided early check in and breakfast for the privilege members!! We were upgraded and the rooms were spacious, luxurious and comfortable. Very well laid out breakfast.
This is the best hotel in Guangzhou.
All staff showing the best effort to serve better.
Makes me to extend more than 2 times!
Definitely will be back to Sofitel Guangzhou in the future.
Special thanks to Natalie, for her patronage during my stay.
Came here at the invite of our company partner for an engineering engagement. The room quality is great, clean and well maintain.
The breakfast has very good variety and taste is of international standard. Glad i came here . Enjoy the stay very much.
We used this hotel for a small conference. The staff were attentive and accommodating. The break food selection was excellent. As a guest, I found the room to be ideal for business travel (and I imagine, leisure travel). The breakfast buffet was excellent, as was the selections for lunch and dinner.
