The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou

A slice of classic luxury in Guangzhou
In the heart of new Guangzhou, steps from the Pearl River, The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou offers a slice of classic luxury amid the hypermodern surroundings. Behind the 40-story glass and steel façade is a regal interior of marble and brocade, an environment of timeless elegance where every modern convenience can still be found.

Situated on the 20th through 38th floors, 351 rooms and suites have views of either the Pearl River, or the vast cityscape. The rooms are furnished in classic European style, with Chinese decorative objects – vases, small chests, an embroidered coverlet — to provide a sense of place.  

A range of Eastern and Western dining options is available on premise, and in-room dining is provided 24 hours a day. The fitness center is also open around the clock, and a full-service spa offers luxurious ways to relax and rejuvenate. The large outdoor pool is heated for comfort all year. Navigating these amenities, and the city outside, is easy with the help of the warm, eager-to-please staff.
