Located in the old city of Qufu â€“ better known as the birthplace of Chinese philosopher Confucius â€“ is the first JW Marriott hotel in Shandong Province, and the 16th in China.
The hotel, designed by Kai Cui, the academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, features 188 individual guestrooms and nine complex suites. There are six room categories, from the 45m2 Deluxe to the 98m2 Executive Suites.
Recreational facilities include a 24-hour fitness centre, spa and indoor heated swimming pool. There are also four F&B options on-site: the hotel’s signature restaurant Residence serving Cantonese and Shandong cuisine; the smart casual JW Kitchen with an international menu; the intimate Lounge for afternoon tea and wine; and the Tea Library in the lobby where guests can experience local tea culture guided by an expert tea master.
Event planners may avail the propertyâ€™s seven multipurpose function spaces, such as the 800m2 Grand Ballroom with a 9m-high ceiling which can be further divided into two, and the 200m2 Function Room which can be further divided into three smaller halls.
