The Art Deco styling is augmented with traditional Sichuanese accents, modern architecture elements and stunning pieces of art that are both custom-made and curated especially for the hotel. The detailing and styling is a catalyst between eras and cultures, offering East meet West philosophies and the fusion of classic elements with modern day luxury.
