Located in the heart of the revitalized former British concession and central business district, The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin will form an iconic landmark when it opens mid-2013.
Designated by the Chinese government as one of five ‘national central cities’, Tianjin is at the forefront of leading and developing political, cultural and economic standards for the nation.
The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin, is located by the Haihe River, surrounded by the 19th and 20th century architecture of European nations that sought to trade with China, reflecting the city’s strategic importance that continues today. Tianjin enjoys one of the fastest growth rates in China and is a key hub of the economy. Major industries include petrochemical, car production, metal works and aircraft manufacturing. It is also the world’s fifth largest container port and China’s largest artificial deep-water port.
The soon-to-open Ritz-Carlton hotel with a grand neo-classical style façade was designed by the Tianjin Academy of Urban Planning and Design, with interiors created by luxury hospitality designer, Pierre-Yves Rochon. It houses 277 rooms, including 53 suites and reflects the cultural European heritage in the district.The property will showcase four restaurants and bars, the signature of which will be an elegant Cantonese restaurant with 10 private dining rooms, each featuring its own private wine cellar.
