Situated in the city’s central business district a few minutes from Luomashi station on Metro Line 1, the property is also adjacent to Tianfu Square, which multiple museums, a library as well as retail, entertainment and other cultural attractions.
The Tianfu Square Serviced Suites will offer a total of 162 accommodations ranging from one- to three-bedroom units, each with a fully equipped kitchen, living and dining area, as well as an LCD TV, a home theatre system, and complimentary wifi and wired internet. Outside of the accommodations, a 24-hour gym and residents’ lounge, a heated indoor swimming pool, kids’ playground and a Sky Garden are also available.
This will be Hong Kong-based Lanson Place Hospitality’s debut in Chengdu, marking the fifth destination and 11th hotel to be added to the group’s portfolio. While small, the company nonetheless feels it is able to take on other operators in the market.
“What sets us apart from our competitors is our contemporary, home-from-home accommodations and our hallmark of warm and attentive guest services,” said head of China operations, John Wong. “At Lanson Place, every staff member goes the extra mile by providing personalised services that make our residents feel truly at home. We strive to create the fondest experiences and to build a long-lasting relationship with our residents, treating them as our own family.”
Typical services guests can utilise are concierge, housekeeping, laundry, 24-hour CCTV, food delivery and babysitting.
“Chengdu is now a premier investment destination,” said Wong, and a number of hospitality operators are now in the market. Fellow serviced residence operators Oakwood and The Ascott Limited each already have properties in the city in the form of the Oakwood Residence Funder Chengdu, the Ascott Raffles City Chengdu, the Citadines South Chengdu, and the Somerset Riverview Chengdu.
Meanwhile on the hotel front, the city has seen a slew of new openings over the past 18 months from a number of the major operators. In July last year, the Grand Hyatt Chengdu opened for business, followed soon after by the debut of the JW Marriott brand in the city in October. In January this year, Accorhotels’ Fairmont brand also made its debut in Chengdu.
