JW Marriott is making a big splash in central China, opening its second hotel in Xi’an in 2023.
Here’s what you need to know.
Second JW Marriott Hotel Now Open in Xi’an
JW Marriott Hotel Xi’an Southwest has 292 rooms and suites in the Xi’an Hi-Tech Industry Development Zone.
Amenities include 2 restaurants, a lounge bar, brand signature JW Garden, 22,000 square feet of meeting space, a fitness center, and a swimming pool.
Xi’an Xianyang International Airport (XIY) is a roughly 40-minute drive from the hotel.
Bruce Rohr, JW Marriott Global Brand Leader, said the new hotel “embodies the tapestry of history, cultural richness and contemporary sophistication” in Xi’an.
“Xi’an is not only a rapidly developing hub but also a city with immense cultural and historical significance, making it a sought-after destination for tourists in northwest China,” said Vincent Leung, General Manager, JW Marriott Hotel Xi’an Southwest.
Booking JW Marriott Hotel Xi’an Southwest
JW Marriott Hotel Xi’an Southwest is now open and accepting reservations. As the hotel is part of the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can earn and redeem points at this property.
And for a JW Marriott — one of Marriott’s more exclusive brands — this hotel is an absolute steal. Cash stays start at just $110 per night for dates next May, while award nights start at just 18,000 points per night.
Either way, you’d be paying a fraction here than you would for a similarly structured JW Marriott property in Europe or the U.S.
If you want to use points but don’t have enough to cover the cost of an award, you can transfer American Express Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Marriott at a 1:1 ratio. The 2 programs occasionally offer limited-time transfer bonuses, giving you more points for a free night.
Another way to earn points is through a co-branded Marriott Bonvoy credit card. All cards offer fabulous welcome bonuses (after completing minimum spending requirements) and Marriott Bonvoy elite status.
Marriott has made a big statement by opening 2 JW Marriott’s (one of the chain’s best brands) in Xi’an in just under a year. But peeking under the hood is something award and budget travelers alike will appreciate — affordable rates — so if you’re in the area, JW Marriott Hotel Xi’an Southwest is a top choice for your next hotel stay!
