Chengdu St Regis

St Regis Chengdu, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, opened last week exactly 110 years after the first St Regis hotel in New York City was inaugurated in 1904.  With this event the brand reaches 33 hotels around the world.

“The St Regis Chengdu marks a significant milestone for the brand with plans to double the St Regis portfolio in Greater China in the next five years,” said Paul James, Global Brand Leader, St Regis, The Luxury Collection and W Hotels Worldwide.  “As the world descends on Chengdu for both business and leisure, the St Regis is poised to become the social centre of this exhilarating city.”

As the capital of Sichuan province in Southwest China, Chengdu has evolved from an ancient city with rich cultural traditions to one known around the world as ‘the Silicon Valley of China’ – a vital hub for world commerce and home to more than 252 Fortune 500 companies. 

The St Regis Chengdu, ideally located at the intersection of Chengdu’s business and luxury retail districts, and steps away from Tianfu Square and Chun Xi Road, offers 279 luxuriously appointed guestrooms and suites artfully designed to blend in with the residential Art Deco style of the 1920s with traditional elements of Sichuan culture and discreet state-of-the-art technology.   www.stregis.com/chengdu
