Its accommodations overlook 16,500 square meters of beautiful gardens and are spread across three unique buildings, the historic Cathay Building (built in 1929), the lavish mid-1930s Grosvenor House and the modern Cathay Garden executive wing. The Jin Jiang Hotel, with its many facets, flavors, and features, is a reminder of what a truly "grand" hotel should be.

The Jin Jiang Hotel complex offers several dining opportunities within the hotel. The Fortune Palace features carved teak paneling, museum-quality vintage European ceiling lamps and exquisite teak floors. This ambience provides a journey for diners to a finer era of unstinting quality and opulence. The Cathay Brasserie has a "show kitchen" where guests can watch expert chefs creating novel, fresh meals all day. Treat yourself to a relaxing English afternoon tea or dine from the theme buffet while enjoying the beautiful garden view accompanied by soft music.
The lobby lounge in the Cathay Garden building is unique not just for its fashionable and luxurious layout, but more for the lobby library. Enjoy the comfort of the sofa while sipping some fine wine, tea or coffee.
