Chengdu’s Ritz-Carlton hotel is a relative newcomer to the booming city, and unmatched in elegance, offering exceptional service, rooftop dining, a pool that plays underwater music, and innovative green tea spa treatments. The rooms (and the windows) are huge.
Just north of downtown, within walking distance of two metro stops and about 45 minutes from the airport.
Address: No. 269 Shuncheng Avenue, Qingyang District, Chengdu 610017, China.
Style & character
The hotel brings a Western interpretation of wealth and comfort to one of China’s fastest growing cities. As one of the newest hotels in the chain, the hotel also boasts some nice modern touches, such as the hi-tech gym and indoor swimming pool with underwater music. The hotel embraces the Chengdu teahouse culture in refined, yet noticeable ways – such as the green tea spa treatment, and hot tea served in local gaiwan-style cups at check-in.
Service & facilities
Excellent. Attentive without intruding, glamorous without overdoing it. The professional, impeccably dressed butlers that see guests up from the ground floor to the lobby – in gleaming new elevators – are a nice touch.

- Steam room/hammam
Rooms are huge, with high ceilings and massive windows. The beds are large and very comfortable, and the bathrooms both smartly modern (e.g. TOTO toilets with several settings) and very practical.

Food & drink
The Canto-Sichuan themed Li Xuan Chinese restaurant does well to keep up the exclusive atmosphere, specializing in international versions of Chinese standards such as Kung Pao Chicken with a healthy dose of ginger and fresh chili (and a refreshingly small dose of oil). Flair, a rooftop restaurant with wow-factor, has indoor and outdoor seating overlooking Tianfu Square, and at night the rich and the beautiful come here to take selfies, order from Swiss waiters, and look out over the throbbing heart of Chengdu. Flair has Asian style tapas, as well as classic BBQ steak and crispy fried snacks on a menu that changes with the seasons. There’s also an incredible Champagne bar, a long list of cocktails and ice cold beer.
