Jinjiang, China, 18 August, 2021 –– Marco Polo Jinjiang today unveiled its new-look Lobby Lounge on the ground level of the hotel. The refurbishment is part of the hotel’s phased transformation encompassing its Continental Club Lounge and guestrooms that were introduced in March of this year.
At the heart of the Lobby Lounge is its 18-metre pillar-less vaulted atrium, which complements a gold-coloured wood frame that resembles a honeycomb-like structure measuring 20 feet high and 88 feet wide. The lofty ambience is further heightened by an imposing Chinese oil painting depicting clouds and mountains in warm hues. With abundant natural light cascading through the space, the re-imagined Lobby Lounge – dressed in oversized cream coloured sofa seating, as well as accent chairs in burnt orange and sapphire blue tones – invites guests to gather for business meetings or casual meetups.
A central bar unites the space that transitions in mood from day to evening. In the afternoon, a curated menu of light bites are served alongside specialty coffees made by either the unique iced drip process, siphon brewing technique or French press method. Fine vintage Chinese teas – presented on a hand written Chinese calligraphy menu – including Tieguanyin, Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) and premium Baihao Yinzhen are among the exceptional beverage options.
By the evening, the lounge transforms into a social space where guests can discover the city’s largest selection of gin. Among the 22 varieties from England, Scotland, Wales and Germany are unique brands such as The Botanist Gin, Tanqueray Ten Gin and The London Nº 1. An expansive collection of wines and spirits are also available to meet diverse guest preferences.
The pianola provides musical entertainment from 11.30 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.
The Lobby Lounge opens from 10 a.m. to 12 midnight daily and reservations can be made via telephone at +86 595 3666 666 extension 6215.
Re-emerging from an extensive revitalisation in March this year were Marco Polo Jinjiang’s Continental Club Lounge and its guestrooms and suites.
Located on level 11 of the hotel, the redesigned Continental Club Lounge is marked by a predominant use of light wood panelling and large glass panes to showcase the sun-light filled double-storey venue. Here, guests can work or meet with colleagues in multi-functional conference rooms. For entertainment purposes, a private movie theatre with full stereo surround sound and six reclining chairs is available.
Other benefits at the Continental Club include breakfast, tea and coffee served throughout the day, evening cocktails, personalised check-in, 24-hour butler service, as well as laundry and pressing service. Use of the facility is exclusive for guests staying in the Continental Club guestrooms or suites.
In the Continental Club guestrooms, the warmth of the interior is expressed through further use of wood and a blend of warm orange and dusty grey colours that are fresh and welcoming. Asian design accents subtly feature on wall panels, while large picture windows invite natural light.
Nestled between levels 10 to 12 of the hotel, the guestrooms range in size from 32 square metres to 39 square metres. Each is equipped with modern conveniences such as dual line telephones, cable television and tea and coffee making facilities.
