JW Marriott announced the opening of JW Marriott Hotel Xi’an Southwest. Located near a host of UNESCO World Heritage sites, historical attractions and iconic landmarks, the hotel seamlessly blends the charm of Xi’an’s ancient city with its modern elegance, providing an immersive experience which aligns with the luxury hotel brand’s signature style of mindful luxury and hospitality.

“We are thrilled to announce the opening of our second JW Marriott in the vibrant heart of Xi’an, marking a milestone in our brand’s expansion within just a single year. JW Marriott Xi’an Southwest embodies the tapestry of history, cultural richness and contemporary sophistication of this incredible city and is the perfect backdrop for our focus on holistic well-being,” said Bruce Rohr, Global Brand Leader, JW Marriott. “As always, our discerning guests can anticipate an unparalleled stay centered around their well-being, mirroring some of the same practices our Founder, J. Willard Marriott kept which continue to guide the JW Marriott experience today.”

Nestled strategically within Xi’an’s Hi-tech Industry Development Zone, at the epicenter of the bustling business district, the new hotel offers guests convenient access to the city’s most remarkable cultural attractions, like the Tang Dynasty Wall Site Park, Terracotta Warriors, the Great Wild Goose Pagoda and the City Walls. The exceptional location also provides easy access to both the Xi’an Railway Station and Xi’an North Railway Station, just 13 and 20 kilometers away, respectively. Xi’an Xianyang International Airport is also a mere 38km away.

Drawing inspiration from the Tang dynasty and the Chinese Ancient Academy, the hotel’s design merges ancient Chinese culture with modern luxury, creating a serene and cultural atmosphere that caters to both business and leisure guests. Traditional elements such as bamboo slips, ginkgo trees and pavilions have been transformed into elegant wall decorations and art pieces, showcasing the historical heritage of Xi’an. The hotel boasts 292  guestrooms and suites that harmoniously unite local cultural influence with contemporary touches, adding depth and warmth into every space for a truly inviting ambiance for guests. Additionally, each guestroom floor doubles as a mini exhibition space, showcasing Xi’an’s vibrant culture and rich history, from ancient architecture to Tang Dynasty-style tri-color glazed ceramics and cherished tea culture.

JW Marriott Hotel Xi’an Southwest embraces the brand’s focus on authentic dining experiences with two restaurants and a lounge bar. Yong Hao Ge Chinese Restaurant boasts 14 private dining rooms and an open dining area, offering innovative Cantonese dishes with local ingredients. Tian Xi All-day Dining Restaurant serves flavors from around the world and includes a live kitchen. Set beside the hotel lobby, the Lounge Bar specializes in afternoon tea, light fare, desserts and cocktails.

Every aspect of the guest experience is designed with well-being in mind. On the 5th level of the hotel, guests are encouraged to take time for themselves and find a sense of balance through experiences and facilities that inspire and rejuvenate. The brand’s signature JW Garden, located in the sky terrace, provides a tranquil and soothing environment for guests to connect with nature as well as enjoy sustainably sourced fresh herbs and vegetables. Guests will also find tucked-away spaces around the hotel to decompress, including a dedicated serene space for guests to take a breather and pause for a moment or longer. This space features Chinese-style arbor installations, along with local musical instruments and decorations, transporting guests back to ancient times. The fitness center is available 24/7 and equipped with Matrix free weights, stretch stations, a yoga room and an indoor swimming pool for guests to stay active and nurture their physical well-being.

The hotel offers over 2,100 square meters of event space including one grand ballroom and eight function venues for memorable gatherings. The stunning Tianyi Grand Ballroom spans an impressive 900 square meters and is adorned with captivating local art that draws inspiration from Shanxi opera and drum music. The pillarless space comes equipped with the latest audiovisual technology and a dedicated banqueting team to ensure that every moment is seamlessly orchestrated.

Xi’an is not only a rapidly developing hub but also a city with immense cultural and historical significance, making it a sought-after destination for tourists in northwest China,” said Vincent Leung, General Manager, JW Marriott Hotel Xi’an Southwest. “We look forward to welcoming and providing our guests with a truly mindful and holistic well-being experience in this historically rich city with the warm hospitality for which JW Marriott is known.”
