The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin inherits a unique heritage, in the heart of the former British Concession with regal Neoclassical-style interior.
The newly opened The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Tianjin in the group for Asia-Pacific Area, it has been established the flag-ship image since opening. It is outstanding both in exterior and interior weather for the meaning of geographic history or the facilities. Styling of the 277 guestrooms including 53 suites likewise reflected the surrounding district’s European heritage, creating “an atmosphere of neoclassical mansion bedrooms, with cozy libraries, bathrooms with marble vanities and mahogany lacquer furniture.” Even the carpeting, with geometric patterns, is synonymous with that period, as are fresh color palettes in shades of white and cobalt blue in guestrooms, and yellow for the suites.
Its surrounding architecture reflects this rich 19th century history. From the exterior, The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin looks like a prominent historical landmark from that bygone era, when classicism and eclecticism merged in the construction style of the time, blending European and Chinese architectural aesthetics, representative of the nations that traded with China in past centuries. The design intent was to create “authentic, yet subtle classical interiors, immediately distinguishable from any other hotel”, while of course providing the highest quality and comfort for guests. Interior design and detailing therefore took part of its cue from the nostalgic architecture of the hotel’s exterior, adopting the basic principles of English Neoclassical style – balance, symmetry and proportion. An energetic color palette was especially developed, using fresh, bright white and yellow, cobalt blue and celadon; with black and white to create definition and contrast. Exterior design matches the history of the location. Interior design is unique, elegant and focusing on every detail. Most hotels in China are very modern or trendy, featuring generic neutral tones and stark interiors. At The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin designers used classical European aesthetics, combined with authentic details and materials, to uniquely position the property.
