Kempinski has soft-opened its new hotel in Chongqing, the booming, fast-paced Chinese city that is at the centre of the rapid economic development of the country’s western inland regions.
The Kempinski Hotel Chongqing is in two newly built skyscrapers, the smaller one in a curving sail shape. It has 416 rooms and suites. The rooms measure between 33 to 38 sqm and feature work desks, laptop-sized safes, iPod docking stations and wall mounted flat-screen televisions. Many of the rooms offer views over the Yangtze River.
The hotel has a fitness centre spread over two floors with a gym and indoor swimming pool, together with Kempinski The Spa featuring 10 private treatment rooms.
There are six food and beverage options, including the Elements All Day Dining Restaurant, Guo Hui Yan Chinese Restaurant, The Thai Cook Restaurant, Lobby Lounge, and Kempi Deli. There is also a Paulaner Brauhaus, serving German beer and food.
For meetings, the hotel has six rooms and a 650-sqm ballroom.
The hotel is located on the south bank of the Yangtze river, facing north across the water to the densely built up Yuzhong district, the major business district which crowds the narrow band of land reaching between the Yangtze and the Jialing rivers before they intersect.
It is connected to Chongqing International Convention & Exhibition Centre, while the Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport is about 30 minutes drive.
