Hilton Chengdu‘s eye-catching architecture is courtesy of world-renowned design firm, Atkins, which was also behind high profile projects such as the development of downtown Dubai and the Eiffel Tower light displays. The hotel building is capped with crystal-like structures and at night-fall, visitors are treated to a light show put together by the same company that was responsible for the famous light displays at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. The interior of the hotel draws inspiration from the galaxy and features different lighting installations set against a lobby that  boasts a three-storey high ceiling.

Hilton Chengdu is located in the new CBD area of Chengdu, opposite the rapidly expanding Tianfu Software Park and close to the Century City Convention Center, which is the latest International Exhibition & Convention Center. The hotel is about 15 kilometers from Shuangliu International Airport and the Chengdu Metro Line 1 station is just 270 meters from the hotel. The line connects Hilton Chengdu to key business areas as well as entertainment and shopping districts, putting attractions such as the Wide and Narrow Alleys, Wenshu Monastery and Chunxi Road all within easy reach.

Hilton Chengdu‘s 395 rooms and suites emulate Sichuan design elements while offering modern features synonymous with a world-class hotel. Rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows that frame breathtaking views of the city and combine designer décor with thoughtful guest amenities including wired and wireless internet connections, IPTV, in-room safes, ergonomically designed work spaces, as well as 42-inch LCD TVs for watching complimentary movies.

The centerpiece of the hotel’s impressive meeting spaces is a drive-in ballroom – the first of its kind in the city – which opens up a world of possibilities as a venue for memorable events.
