Wharf Hotels has opened Niccolo Chongqing in southwest China, marking the latest addition to the Niccolo collection of contemporary urban chic luxury hotels. Located in the heart of Jiangbeizui, Chongqing’s dynamic Central Business District, the new hotel offers 252 luxurious and stylish guestrooms and suites on levels 54 through 62, with sweeping views of the city and the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing rivers.
Forming a part of Chongqing IFS, the city’s new development incorporating the hotel, high-end office spaces, residences and luxury retail, Niccolo Chongqing is a 30-minute drive from Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport with easy access to the metro station.
The property’s spacious guestrooms and suites are elegantly-designed and feature natural textiles and leathers in subtle earth tones, carpeted floors and stylish, upholstered armchairs. Crowning the hotel and sky tower on level 62, the hotel will include two contemporary destination-dining venues, Niccolo Kitchen and The Tea Lounge, featuring sky-high vistas combining delightful new menus. Bar 62 offers live music on selected evenings and is aptly named for its location, offering guests a panoramic bar and lounge experience with breath-taking views from floor-to-ceiling windows.
Outstanding occasion spaces at the hotel include a glass-enclosed venue, The Conservatory, with a glass staircase allowing for hosts and guests to make a dramatic arrival. Located on the top floors of the hotel, The Conservatory will offer unique banqueting experiences.
The spacious Niccolo Ballroom, accommodating up to 700 guests for cocktails and receptions and directly accessible by car, is complemented by an outdoor event space, The Courtyard on level 4, and ten flexible function rooms.
The hotel also includes a complete wellness concept encompassing the Sky Gym, The Spa at Niccolo with five treatment rooms, and the Sky Pool, a 20-metre pool surrounded by windows looking over Chongqing. www.niccolochongqing.com
