Sofitel Legend People’s Grand Hotel Xian

By Chris Boyle

Sofitel Luxury Hotels is pleased to announce that discerning travelers can now Live the Legend in China when they stay at Sofitel Legend People’s Grand Hotel Xian. With this recent addition, Sofitel is now managing a total of 19 properties in Greater China.

Seven thousand years of history and tradition surround this heritage building which has been lovingly transformed into the first hotel in Greater China to join Sofitel’s exclusive ultra-luxe Legend Collection.

Opened in 1953, as the State Guesthouse, the hotel was designed by Hong Qing, Chief Architect of the Northwest Institute of Architectural Design. He skilfully sited the building in an extensive garden, formerly part of the grounds of an imperial palace. Hong used a number of French touches, including fleur-de-lis (stylized lily) as a recurring motif.

“As the first Legend hotel in Accor China’s portfolio and only the fifth in the group’s world map, we feel this beautiful property strikes the perfect note of French elegance in the heart of this timeless city, with its long history as a cultural crossroads at the start of the Silk Road,” said Paul Richardson, Accor Greater China Chief Operating Officer.
