The brand new JW Marriott Hotel Zhengzhou is situated in the heart of the Zhengzhou CBD district in between the Henan Art Center and Ruyi Lake. This unique 280-metre-tall Zhengzhou landmark is inspired by the 1,500-year-old Songyue Pagoda. Designer Duncan Miller Ullmann's interior design is influenced by history -- from the earliest rich metal tones to the verdigris green of aged cast bronze vessels, from the pale greens of carved jade ornaments to the exotic peacock blues found in fine porcelain -- all of which were developed in this region. Both the exterior and interior design subtly incorporate the ancient capital of Zhengzhou’s history as the birthplace of Chinese culture over 5,000 years ago.
The design inspiration came from the Songyue Pagoda and the famous Shaolin Temple which are both located in Dengfeng, a 2-hour drive from Zhengzhou. The Shaolin temple was established back in 495A.D. (Northern Wei Dynasty) to accommodate the Indian master Batuo. However, the Shaolin Temple became legendary and was recognized as the origin of Chan Buddhism and Chinese Kong Fu. Aside from the rich history there are many scenic spots for you to explore nearby, like pagoda forest, Bodhidharma cave, and the south garden which has a delightful view.
After your culture exploration, Zhengdong CDB has everything modern life has to offer. Our in-house restaurant Man Ho has Henan local cuisine. The Grill is the only five-star steak house in town. The Zhengzhou Kitchen provides a wide selection of international dishes as all-day dining options. Beside Ruyi Lake there are many other signature restaurants nearby, like HIBIKI, Jasmine Restaurant, and Paulaner Brauhaus. The top local shopping mall, Dennis, is also located on the inner circle of CBD within walking distance from the hotel. We truly hope someday you may visit Zhengzhou and stay with us at the JW Marriott Hotel Zhengzhou. You will not be disappointed.
