The hotel is located in the Luomashi area of the city close to the main focal point of Tianfu Square and within the central business district. 

The nearby Luomashi metro station, on line 1 of the Chengdu Metro, provides easy travel to Financial City where many of the city’s banking and financial services companies are located.
