Conrad Hotels and Resorts is expanding its portfolio in China with the signing of three new properties in the country’s major cities – Xi’an, Chengdu and Nanjing.
This follows the opening of Asia’s largest Conrad hotel in Shanghai last year, and the upcoming openings of Conrad Shenzhen and Conrad Chongqing this year.
Slated to open in 2025, Conrad Xi’an will be located in a 230m-tall skyscraper in the city’s dynamic high-tech zone, steps away from underground rail stations and other transportation facilities. It will include a fitness centre and F&B offerings.
Conrad Chengdu will be located in the heart of the commercial district, overlooking the Jinjiang river. When open in 2025, the hotel will feature an all-day dining restaurant, lobby lounge, rooftop bar and more.
Scheduled to open in 2027, Conrad Nanjing will be housed on the upper floors of a 300m-tall tower in the central business district along the Yangtze river. It will boast expansive suites with private sky terraces, a spa and fitness centre, and a glass-bottomed pool.
“By bringing the brand to the major metropolises of Xi’an, Chengdu and Nanjing, we are focused on our strategy to align our expansion with regional developments in China, to contribute to these destinations, and deliver benefits to our owners and guests alike,” said Clarence Tan, senior vice president, development, Asia-Pacific, Hilton.
Nils-Arne Schroeder, vice president, Luxury, Asia-Pacific, Hilton, added that the signing of the three Conrad hotels signals the brand’s optimism for “the future of luxury hospitality in China”.
