Waldorf Astoria Chengdu » Deluxe Room

Deluxe Room at Waldorf Astoria Chengdu

The Deluxe Room is the lead-in room category of Waldorf Astoria Chengdu. The room measures 50 square meters and is available in a King Bed or 2 Queen Beds configuration. I stayed in a King Deluxe Room (4026) which is located on the 40th floor of the hotel tower.

Guestrooms and suites here at Waldorf Astoria Chengdu were designed by one of my favorite interior designers, Alexandra Champalimaud. She also designed the interiors of Four Seasons Hotel JakartaThe Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur, and the recently completed renovation of Raffles Singapore.

I love how Champalimaud gracefully combined the art deco inspiration from the Waldorf Astoria brand with the subtle details taken from the local culture and arts of Sichuan. The resulting product exudes classic elegance that is intriguing yet appealing to the most discerning Western and Asian luxury travelers.

The spacious accommodation comfortably fits the bed, a writing desk, and a seating area with enough free space to conveniently move around. The seating area features a sofa where guests can admire the view of the city or watch movies from the 48-inch HDTV. The curtains are controlled by buttons located next to the bed.

A cabinet next to the seating area stored the minibar and the Nespresso machine. The minibar is fully stocked with bottled juices, canned soda, and beer. There's also wine and premium spirits available. Bottled water is provided for the Nespresso machine and electronic water kettle. My welcome amenity included fresh fruits and chocolates served in a charming jewelry box.



The highlight of my stay was definitely the Waldorf Astoria bed. The mattress is on the soft side with excellent spine support. The bed's topper provides additional cushioning that adjusts to the contours of the body. The bed is finally covered with a 600 thread count linen sheets and duvet covers. The pillows also provide an excellent neck support.

It was the beginning of winter when I visited Chengdu and the room has excellent temperature insulation. The indoor temperature is maintained in a comfortable range of 20-24 degrees celsius. I also appreciate that the temperature in the bathroom is slightly warmer than the bedroom area, especially after stepping out of the shower.

Wifi is available inside the bedroom and power outlets have universal sockets and are conveniently located next to the bed and the writing desk. The desk can also function as a dining table should you wish order room service.



The bathroom is equally spacious with dual marble vanity. There is enough space for two persons to move around the bathroom. There are a separate bathtub and walk-in shower. Towels are generously provided.



The walk-in shower is fitted with handheld and rainfall showerheads. Water pressure was consistently strong during my stay. Hot water was instantaneously available. I enjoyed a warm bath after an evening stroll around the hotel. The warm water helped to relax my tired feet and back.



The Tuscan Soul Convivio body and bath amenities by Salvatore Ferragamo is the global standard in all Waldorf Astoria properties. It has an elegant woody scent with refreshing citrus notes of bergamot and floral touches of jasmine. It has a unisex smell that leans towards the masculine side.



Located to the room's main door is the walk-in closet. The rack can fit up to two large-size luggage while closet cabinets have more than enough storage space for folded and hanging clothes for a week-long stay.



Bathrobes and bedroom slippers are also stored inside the walk-in closet. There's also iron and ironing board should you need to fix those unwanted folds on your clothes. Next to the walk-in closet is a separate lavatory which is fitted with its own basin and washlet toilet.



Overall, I loved my stay here in the Deluxe Room of Waldorf Astoria Chengdu. It is slightly bigger than the average guestroom but not overly spacious as a suite. This makes this room ideal for solo travelers or for couples.
