The Luxury Collection® Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc has announced the opening of The Grand Mansion, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Nanjing, in the capital of China’s Jiangsu province.

The Grand Mansion joins a portfolio that includes The Azure Qiantang in Hangzhou, The Castle Hotel in Dalian, Twelve at Hengshan and The Hongta Hotel in Shanghai, The Royal Begonia in Sanya and the legendary Astor Hotel in Tianjin.
“The rapid growth of The Luxury Collection brand in China reflects a robust demand for high-end hospitality from an increasingly affluent market, where domestic travel continues to thrive,” said Hoyt H. Harper II, Global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts. “We are thrilled to debut The Grand Mansion – a hotel that is at once a portal to the rich cultural heritage of Nanjing and a gateway to experience the city’s contemporary art, design and cuisine.”
Nanjing is less than 300 miles from Shanghai and is now seen as an up and coming university town in addition to being a hub for business and tourism. The Grand Mansion is located on Chanjiang Road moments away from the iconic Presidential Palace. The hotel will feature 158 luxuriously appointed guest rooms, 15 suites and a Presidential Suite.
One unique feature of the new hotel will be The Traveller’s Library and China’s largest hotel libraries with over 3,000 books as well as local antiques and global treasures that pay tribute to numerous voyages by global explorers around the world.
