Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group announced that it will manage a luxury hotel in Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu Province in China, scheduled to open in 2022.
Mandarin Oriental, Nanjing will be located on the Qinhuai River and near historic landmarks including the Gate of China, which forms part of one of the longest ancient city walls in the world.
The hotel will feature 106 rooms and suites with views of the river and the ancient city wall. There will be three restaurants and bars, including an all-day dining option, a Chinese restaurant and a Lobby Lounge. The hotel will also have a Spa at Mandarin Oriental, which will provide treatments and therapies, as well as an indoor pool and fitness center.
