August 22, 2019 // Franchising.com // TIANJIN, China and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the opening of Conrad Tianjin, a new 10-story, 375-room, state-of-the-art hotel in Nankai District. Located in the heart of a thriving business hub, the property takes its design inspiration from the city’s historical and cultural landmarks, reminiscent of architecture from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. With stately hotel rooms enclosing a European courtyard, and stunning interiors that showcase a blend of modern chic and Art Deco, Conrad Tianjin is primed to be a destination for the world’s smart luxury travelers.
“Tianjin is not only one of China’s most strategically important cities, but one of Hilton’s as well, as investments are pumped into developing the city as a global centre for industry, business and culture through the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Integration Plan,” said Qian Jin, area president for Greater China and Mongolia, Hilton. “With the opening of Conrad Tianjin, Hilton will accelerate the region’s tourism development and fulfill the ever-growing demands of business and leisure customers, consistently delivering personal services and curated experiences that elevate their journeys.”
“As we continue to debut landmark properties in the world’s most sought-after destinations, it is a tremendous honor to introduce our Conrad brand to Tianjin. With intuitive service, culinary excellence and a design inspired by the city’s heritage, Conrad Tianjin is set to exceed the expectations of global travelers, whether they are long-stay business guests or new adventure seekers,” said Martin Rinck, executive vice president and global head, Luxury & Lifestyle Group, Hilton. “Conrad Tianjin is the perfect destination that will garner recognition from Chinese, as well as international, guests, ensuring they feel relaxed and inspired throughout their stay in this historic city.”
Conrad Tianjin is located in the heart of the vibrant Nankai District, and nestled within the premier Luneng Ecological Zone, comprising offices, residences and a high-end shopping plaza. The hotel offers a prime location near government offices, the Central Business District and Tianjin Meijiang Convention Center, and is adjacent to the Tianjin Zoo and Tianjin Water Park, two of the city’s largest recreational areas. With its proximity to Nankai University, the district is also renowned for its vibrant culture.
Exploring the city is made easy with the Metro situated just half a kilometer away. Guests can easily connect to transportation hubs with the Tianjin Binhai International Airport a convenient 22 kilometers from the hotel and Tianjin Train Station just seven kilometers away.
Built by the renowned Luneng Group, the hotel's Neoclassical façade captures the essence of the city’s long legacy and cultural traditions. The exterior reflects the Western buildings on Tianjin’s famous 5th Avenue, constructed during the bygone era of the early 20th century when classicism and eclecticism merged in style. Conrad Tianjin effortlessly blends these European and Chinese architectural aesthetics, representing the nations that traded with China in centuries past.
This design theme continues with the hotel’s interior, weaving together past and present, authenticity and luxury, and innovative and cutting-edge technology. The grand interiors, with high ceilings and expanses of marble, subtly mirror Art Deco details of the past. A floor-to-ceiling bronze curtain is the highlight of the lobby, evoking a sense of modernity as it divides the Lobby Lounge. The curtain wall has been designed to signify auspicious joy, happiness and prosperity, all expressing a peaceful environment for both business and leisure.
Brasserie on G is open for all-day dining with buffet and a la carte offerings, serving weekly or seasonal specialties and gourmet desserts in lively open kitchens. It carries on the Art Deco lounge styling in a relaxed setting and offers al fresco dining in summer months. Modelled after an imperial courtyard in its paper lantern-like lighting and quiet sophistication, YING serves a selection of Chinese specialties from various provinces including Sichuan, Shandong, Huaiyang and Guangdong cuisines. It also offers private dining rooms perfect for a business lunch or celebration dinner. Approachable, fun and passionate, Bam Bou – the hotel's signature restaurant – is an intimate venue focused on Southeast Asian homestyle dishes and classic pan-Asian flavors, alongside an impressive selection of wine and refreshing beers. CHA, with a stunning bar anchoring this stylish lounge, offers the perfect setting to linger over a cup of freshly brewed artisanal tea, complemented by the hotel's signature afternoon tea set. Guests can also relax over craft beers and locally inspired cocktails.
Guest rooms at Conrad Tianjin are well-appointed and designed to deliver a seamless guest experience. The hotel comprises 375 Digital Key-enabled guest rooms, including 29 hotel suites.
