At the heart of Nanjing’s Gulou District, Shangri-La provides a convenient and elegant respite from the bustling city. The hotel is part of a new building on Zhongyang Road, with easy access to the best shopping and dining destinations in Nanjing.
After a smooth car ride from Nanjing International Airport, you check in to your spacious room with stylish décor and a view of Xuanwu Lake from floor-to-ceiling windows. You take some time to rest and freshen up, then set off to explore the culturally rich city. Your first stop is the nearby mausoleum of Dr. Sun Yat-sen. This monument to the father of the Republic of China is one of Nanjing’s most famous attractions, and a sacred site for many Chinese people.
After a day’s sight-seeing, you return to the comfort of Shangri-La and consider your choices for dinner: an impressive international buffet spread at Café Xuan, authentic Huaiyang dishes at Jiangnan Wok, or a destination hot pot favourites and bar combination at JIN. Before dinner, you stop by the Horizon Club Lounge for a cocktail, where you admire the sweeping views of Purple Mountain as the sun begins to set over the ancient capital turned modern metropolis.
You have found enchantment at Shangri-La.
