Club Elevated Experience at The Ritz-Carlton, Chengdu
CHENGDU, China – February 15, 2016 – Recently, there has been an increasing influx of a new type of travelers, “bleisure” [business and leisure] visitors seeking to enjoy amazing experiences in a destination while on a business trip. “Bleisure” is popular among modern travelers because it perfectly combines two seemingly different ideas. It does not only encourage people not to rush to the next destination while on business travel, but also to slow down, extend the trip to the weekend to enjoy what the city has to offer. They can enjoy the local natural beauty and history of the city, or a weekend of fun with family or friends in a place other than home; or just stay at the hotel and explore the body and spiritual relaxation treatments at the SPA or the culinary offerings at the restaurants.
Chengdu, the rapidly developing city in southwest China and the city you would never want to leave once you have seen it, has become the top choice for “bleisure” travelers. The dedicated Ladies and Gentlemen at The Ritz-Carlton, Chengdu will take care of everything for you and will make you feel at home from the very first moment upon your arrival. The Ritz-Carlton Club® provides discerning travelers with the city’s finest accommodations and the undivided personal attention of a regiment of highly trained Ritz-Carlton Ladies and Gentlemen, which guests experience in the form of an exceptional “hotel within a hotel.”
The first day of stay for business travelers starts with a personalized wake-up service. Stretch your body after a night of comfortable sleep on 400-thread-count linens, feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. After showering and freshening up in the elegant bathroom, get suited up in the walk-in closet. In the meantime, the doorbell rings and your 24-hour butler comes in with a “good morning” greeting and a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
We value the time of our guests, and thus we have a convenient Business Center that provides secretarial, facsimile, photocopy and courier pick-up and delivery services. Each guest is furthermore entitled to complimentary use of a meeting room for an hour per stay. Dedicated concierge services, high-speed wireless and wired Internet access and complimentary 1st Ring Road drop-off transportation complete the experience. Guests can also enjoy exclusive relaxation and entertainment at the Club Lounge with five food and beverage presentations daily: breakfast, a mid-day light meal, afternoon tea, evening cocktails and chocolates and cordials.
When work is done, extend your travel plan, slow down your tempo and indulge in the leisurely life in Chengdu. The hotel features various paintings and decorations all over, exquisite furnishings that showcase the unique Chengdu tea culture and allow you to experience the authentic local sense of place without going out.
The five meals featuring global cuisine at the Club Lounge are all prepared by chefs live at the cooking station, delivering only the freshest dishes to you. There’s more to the surprises: a “secret menu” spread through word of mouth among guests, no matter what you want, like “Truffle Risotto, Chicken Makhani, Vietnamese Hot & Sour Seafood Soup or unique Sichuan Dan Dan Noodles and Zhong Shui Jiao. Just inform our chef at the Club Lounge, and he will gladly grant your wish and create an exclusive culinary memory for you. Back in your room, you can lounge on the couch and sip on a cup of tea while enjoying an overlooking view of the prosperous city or reviewing the personalized city travel tips provided by your butler, nicely planned for your city exploration trip over the weekend.
