A Modern-Day Oasis Along China’s Silk Road

Hilton Lanzhou
Lanzhou, China

The interior of the Hilton Lanzhou hotel was designed to create an oasis experience for guests visiting the capital of the Gansu province and a key gateway into Western China.

The 32-story Lanzhou Hilton is the first international hospitality brand in the city. 

In the same way that the Silk Road, which traveled through this city, inspired travelers over the centuries, the hotel’s elegant lobby and sophisticated lounge and restaurant spaces inspire visitors and locals to continue the exchange of diverse cultures and ideas.

The hotel’s 389 guestrooms, meanwhile, offer guests richly appointed retreats with stunning views of the nearby Yellow River, distant mountains and expanding Lanzhou skyline. Other public spaces shaped by the design team include multiple meeting rooms, a ballroom and a health club, a spa and an indoor pool.
