The Grand Mansion, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Nanjing opens its doors in the capital of China’s Jiangsu province. The Grand Mansion marks the brand’s seventh hotel in China. “The rapid growth of The Luxury Collection brand in China reflects a robust demand for high-end hospitality from an increasingly affluent market, where domestic travel continues to thrive,” said Hoyt H. Harper II, Global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts.
The Grand Mansion joins a distinguished portfolio that includes The Azure Qiantang in Hangzhou, The Castle Hotel in Dalian, Twelve at Hengshan and The Hongta Hotel in Shanghai, The Royal Begonia in Sanya and the legendary Astor Hotel in Tianjin.
One of the original “Four Great Ancient Cities of China,” Nanjing is less than 300 miles from Shanghai, situated on the lower stretches of the Yangzi River. Considered an up-and-coming university town, the city is also a national hub for business and tourism with an impressive, enduring historical heritage. A magnificent city wall still surrounds most of Nanjing, which boasts tree-lined boulevards, chic cafes and historical museums, set amidst a beautiful landscape of lakes, forested parks and rivers.
The Grand Mansion is ideally located on the historic Chanjiang Road, sharing its unparalleled location with the Oriental Metropolitan Museum on the archeological site of the Jiankang Palace. Steps away from the iconic Presidential Palace, The Grand Mansion features 158 luxuriously appointed guestrooms, including 15 suites and an expansive Presidential Suite, designed to capture the destination’s profound history and rich cultural legacy.
The meticulously designed public spaces of The Grand Mansion harken back to the city’s celebrated era. Sun-drenched and surrounded by rooftop windows, The Travellers’ Library is one of China’s largest hotel libraries with a vast collection of 3,000 books as well as local antiques and global treasures that pay tribute to numerous voyages by global explorers around the world.
Nearby, guests can relax in the Xi Lounge, which offers an exquisite collection of teas. For dinner, the traditional Xuan Ling Ge Chinese restaurant artfully serves “Min Guo” cuisine, a culinary signature of Nanjing that fuses Huaiyang, Hangzhou, and traditional Taiwanese flavors; while The Atrium offers all-day dining option, specializing in Nanjing and international cuisines, including Min Guo-style dishes, barbecue and local snacks.
The Grand Mansion also presents guests with a range of leisure facilities, such as a fitness center, indoor heated pool and luxurious spa. It boasts flexible meeting spaces, including a grand ballroom spanning nearly 6000 square feet and seven distinct, spacious meeting rooms.
