The Westin Guangzhou is located in the heart of the Tianhe District, the burgeoning central business district of Guangzhou. Wonderful retail shopping and dining, as well as parks, museums, and sightseeing attractions, are only a short walk—or subway or taxi ride—away. The convenient location makes this upscale Guangzhou hotel an ideal meeting point, and a renewing destination in which to rest, shop, exercise, and be at your best.
Guangzhou’s 2000-year history comes to life in its numerous museums and historical attractions. The Tomb of the Southern Yue Kings transports you back to Guangzhou’s imperial past. During the 1800s, Guangzhou, then called Canton, rapidly grew into a flourishing port, a maritime Silk Road where merchants from the world over gathered to trade tea, spices, Chinese silk, and porcelain. Today, Guangzhou remains the commercial gateway to China, and has evolved into a modern metropolis, where malls and skyscrapers sprout freely, new expressways crisscross, and the population accelerates towards modernization. In all of this growth, Guangzhou has preserved much of its heritage, inviting visitors to explore a rich history and culture.
Guangzhou has hosted the China Import and Export Fair (also known as the Canton Fair) every spring and fall since 1957. China’s largest commercial exhibition, it features more than 20,000 corporations and institutions from a wide range of industries and locations. The fair takes place about 15 minutes from The Westin Guangzhou.
Adjacent to the hotel is Citic Plaza, the tallest concrete building in the world. The complex consists of two residential buildings as well as a new train station serving the busy Guangzhou-Shenzhen and Guangzhou-Hong Kong railways, a metro station, and the Tianhe Sports Center, host of the sixth National Games and parts of the Asian Games 2010. It also houses one of two nearby retail centers featuring the majority of the luxury brands available in Guangzhou, including Ports, Moiselle, Jorya, Vasto Collection, Sussi, BMW Lifestyle, Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Fendi, Versace, and Ermenegildo Zegna. Guests will find additional exclusive shopping at the nearby Guangzhou Friendship Times Square Store.
