Fuzhou Holiday Inn
Fuzhou is the tenth fastest growing city in the world. Currently under construction, this new 4-star Holiday Inn Hotel (210 rooms and 215,000 sf / 20,000 sm) features three restaurants, a full spa, and conference facilities. Guests will work out in the 24-hour fitness center, enjoy a swim in the indoor pool, and unwind with cocktails in Cityscape Bar. Perched within Fuzhou’s iconic skyline, Cityscape Bar serves up intoxicating views designed with an urban, friendly, and casual ambiance. The hotel is designed around a new internal courtyard garden that connects to external natural gardens surrounding the hotel. The building’s massing reflects the beautiful asymmetry of the surrounding Yushan and Wushan mountains. The glass façade panels express the shape and color of the mountains beyond, while the interior materials emphasize the natural materials -- stone and wood -- found on the mountains.
