Four Seasons Hotel Opens High Above Guangzhou, ChinaJuly 30, 2012
On July 23, the Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou Hotel opened in the top 30 floors of the new Guangzhou International Finance Center. With the number eight considered a lucky number in China, the hotel’s ranking as the 88th property in the growing international portfolio of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts makes it especially auspicious.
The hotel sits 103 stories above the Pearl River. From the ground floor, guests of Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou take dedicated express elevators to the 70th floor lobby. The naturally lit atrium, surrounded by restaurants and rooms above, is higher than the top of St. Paul's Cathedral in London and New York's Statue of Liberty. The property features 302 guest rooms and 42 suites as well as six dining and entertainment venues. It also features the 11,517-square-foot Hua Spa that has a water-based treatment area with Vichy-style shower, rhassoul mud chamber, crystal steam room and laconium in the women's area, plus herbal steam bath, Swedish and Finnish sauna and ice fountain in the men's area.
The Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou joins Four Seasons Hotel Shanghai; Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong; Four Seasons Hotel Macao, Cotai Strip; Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake; and the soon-to-be opened Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai, and Four Seasons Hotel Beijing in the company's growing portfolio, with a dozen additional hotels and resorts currently in advanced stages of development in China.
