Sofitel Luxury Hotels Expand Legend Brand with Legend People’s Grand Hotel Xian


Sofitel Luxury Hotels announced another property in China, the Sofitel Legend People’s Grand Hotel Xian. The luxury group is now overseeing 19 hotels in Greater China.

The property was restored from a heritage building into one of Sofitel’s exclusive Legend Collection properties. The hotel site was originally on the grounds of an imperial palace.

The design is the work of Hong Qing, Chief Architect of the Northwest Institute of Architectural Design. The building is rich in French details, with the fleur-de-lis acting as a symbol for the new luxury hotel.

The property marks the fifth Legend hotel on the globe. It falls on a cultural crossroads at the beginning of the Silk Road.
