The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has opened a new luxury property in China’s northeast winter wonderland of Harbin, known as the “Ice City”.
Centrally located on the city’s Songhua River, The Ritz-Carlton, Harbin occupies the top floors within an upscale mixed residential and retail development in one of Harbin’s tallest buildings.
Harbin is famous for its rich history and unique convergence of Chinese-Russian influences, reflected in many architectural and cultural attractions. Every winter, visitors also come to marvel at larger-than-life ice sculptures that can be seen throughout the city during its famous annual festival.
The Ritz-Carlton, Harbin features 368 guest rooms, including its 31 suites. The property’s Sky Lobby is located on the 54th floor. Each guest room features unique blue-and-white floral motif art walls inspired by traditional Russian lace crafts. In each suite, different inspirations highlight the beauty of Harbin’s four seasons. The signature Ritz-Carlton Club experience includes personalised check-ins, five different curated culinary experiences throughout the day as well as Club programming. To experience a taste of Harbin’s winter culture, guests have the opportunity join local master ice sculptors and discover their creative skills in ice sculpting at the Club Lounge.
