A gleaming structure on the edge of Jinjiang River, Wanda Reign is located in one of Chengdu’s best districts for visitors. The area is populated with quality eateries, teahouses shopping options and is just a 6-minute walk from Jinjiang Hotel Metro Station. A jaunt around the area will allow you to soak in Chengdu’s relaxing teahouse culture. Head towards the centre of the city and take in landmarks such as Chengdu Mosque, Tianfu Square and a host of other places. These historical structures and vast shopping centres are impressive and the perfect photo opportunity for first-time visitors.
But it goes without saying the biggest attraction of peaceful Chengdu is the Chengdu Search Base of Giant Panda Breeding. There’s a visitor’s centre there. At the base, you’ll be able to learn more about Panda conservancy and get up close to pandas and their cubs and experience the tranquility of a bamboo forest.
Back at the hotel, you trade in historical structures for glamour. Marble-clad floors, gold-gilded pillars, massive chandeliers and more creating a breathtaking picture of 1920s elegance. Staying true to the country’s culture, you’ll find floor-to-ceiling artwork of China’s beautiful landscapes. Plush and ridiculously opulent, you’ll feel like royalty as you turn in for the night.
How to Get There
Clean comfortable rooms, beautiful Chinese luxury style, great location, delicious freshly cooked breakfast, great gym and swimming pool, management was very helpful and respectful to resolve booking issue.
The lobby on the 41st floor is very shocking, the service is excellent, and the check-in experience is also excellent. Come to Chengdu's preferred hotel. I love the smell of the towel. It is really make me feel at home!
We were in Chengdu for the Chengdu Panda Asian Food Festival that was based out of this gorgeous hotel. Breathtaking views from the lobby, situated on the 41st floor (floors 1-30 are offices; 31 and up are dedicated to the hotel). Rooms are beautifully appointed with state-of-the-art technology that we hadn’t seen in other facilities (TV could be activated in the bathroom mirror; Toto Neorest toilets, TV sound mutes when the doorbell is rung, etc.). The restaurant on floor 41 featured a sumptuous buffet at breakfast. All manner of Eastern/Western food, deliciously prepared. Service was also excellent as well as attentive. We didn’t get a chance to have drinks at the bar (located across the expansive lobby from the check-in desk) but it was also beautifully appointed with lovely artwork, glass panels, beautiful chandeliers, carved woodwork.
The only drawback was the confusion with the lighting within the rooms. The master switches were located bedside in the nightstand (“Scene 1, 2, 3”) but we finally figured it out by the end of Day 2. Equally confusing were the bathroom lights (up light, down light) - a check with the desk should provide clarity. We did find the room a bit warm. Seems you can try upping the fan and lowering the temps (16.5 degrees is as low as it gets) but the temperature always hovered around 23 degrees).This was mid-May where it was pretty warm outside so we were hoping to come back to a reasonably cooler room.
Would we stay there again? ABSOLUTELY!
