The Westin Tianjin is strategically sited in Heping, the business district of Tianjin, highly accessible and in close proximity to the Yingkou Road Subway Interchange Station that connects Line 1 to Line 3. It is bound by Hebei Road and the Tianjin Earthquake Memorial on the east, the primary city axis of Nanjing Road on the north, Shanxi Road on the west and Xi’An Road on the south.
As part of the urban complex of Tianjin Junlong Plaza (tower A) on the west end next to Nanjing Road, The Westin Tianjin is a high-end five-star city business hotel that also includes serviced apartments. With a total height of 178.1m (38 floors), the hotel commands a great view of the picturesque streets and charming architecture in its immediate surrounding.
The exterior of the hotel tower is a combination of a glass curtain wall and vertical aluminum fins, that provide a rhythm continuous with the Junlong Plaza complex. The reflective materials used on the façade mirrors the building’s surroundings, creating an extension of a historical district on a modern, simple building.
This historical street charm is continued within the hotel where an internal street spanning the depth of the hotel floor is modelled after the European style, connecting visitors to other parts of the Junlong Plaza complex, while serving as a landmark for wayfinding.
