Is There A Four Seasons In Xi’an, China?

Tips : Accommodation

Four Seasons is one of the most luxurious hotel brands in the world and it is natural to ask the question, is there a Four Seasons in Xi’an, China? After all, there are two Four Seasons hotels in Shanghai and one in Shenzhen, so surely there must be a Four Seasons on Xi’an, for easy access to the terra-cotta warriors?

Wherever you are in the world, Four Seasons hotels are consistently one of the best hotels in that city or resort. This means that most Four Seasons hotel room rates generally start at $500 – $1000 USD per night and because they don’t have a Four Seasons loyalty program, you will never be able to book a free stay by racking up and redeeming points, or by collecting points on your credit card and spending them on a Four Seasons hotel stay. It can’t be done. But you can get discounts at Four Seasons hotels and benefit from special rewards at Four Seasons hotels for no extra cost by booking your next stay via our luxury travel concierge.

Xi’an is a large city and capital of Shaanxi Province in central China. With a history dating back 3,100 years, the ancient city of Xi’an offers the opportunity to experience the birthplace of Chinese culture. Most tourists come to see the terra-cotta warriors which is around 70km away, but this city has a huge amount of history.

Xi’an (inside the wall) is actually rather nice, it’s worth taking time to wander around. The Shanxi Art Museum is large and very interesting and outside the wall is the Big Wild Goose Pagoda which was a rather nice area to see, and is where the Westin, which is one of the best Marriotts in Xi’an is located.

Is There A Four Seasons In Xi’an, China?

The answer is no. There is not a Four Seasons Xi’an, China, which is a real shame.
