CHENGDU, China, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chengdu's newest and most anticipated hotel officially opens its doors today.  Located in the heart of the city that was once the site of an imperial palace, the opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Chengdu marks the official arrival of luxury hospitality in South Western China.

Towering above Tianfu Square in the city's cosmopolitan heart, the 353 room property will be the ninth in China for The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. and the 19th in Asia Pacific. With interior design inspired by traditional Chinese courtyard homes, oriental motifs have been skillfully blended into a contemporary luxury hotel. The Ritz-Carlton, Chengdu pays homage to the past, while also catering to the modern needs of its guests with unmatched hotel accommodations.

"We are delighted to be opening our first hotel in Chengdu, an important gateway city in one of the world's fastest growing travel destinations in south west China," said Herve Humler, President and Chief Operations Officer of The Ritz-Carlton. "The city has true international appeal, attracting visitors from all over the world for business or pleasure. We are delighted to play our part in helping put this vibrant destination on the map for discerning luxury travelers."

The Ritz-Carlton, Chengdu provides an ideal base from which to explore the city's cultural and culinary wealth. Chengdu sits astride the 2,000 year old Silk Road and enjoys a reputation as the birthplace of a unique Kung Fu Chinese tea culture.
