Hotel in 280-metre tower in China for Marriott
The 416-room JW Marriott Hotel Zhengzhou is located in Henan Province
Marriott International has opened a hotel occupying the top floors of the tallest building in central China.
The 416-room JW Marriott Hotel Zhengzhou in Henan Province has been opened in partnership with Greenland Group, owners of the 60-floor Millennium Royal Plaza, which stands at 280 metres.
It is the first property for Marriott in Henan and the seventh under the JW Marriott brand in the Greater China region.
The design of Millennium Royal Plaza was inspired by the Songyue Pagoda, a cultural relic that was built approximately 1500 years ago.
Its aluminium exterior’s sunscreens give the structure a distinctive pagoda-shape and also maximize the amount of daylight entering the building while reducing glare and solar heat gain.
The hotel’s interior design reflects the hotel’s location with subtle brown metal celebrating the historic importance of bronze, and pale greens representing high quality jade artifacts that were produced in the region throughout the dynasties.
Over the next 12 months, the company is expected to open JW Marriott hotels in Macao, Chongqing, Kunming and Shenzhen.
