An international authoritative travel agency recently reported that the”staycation” will continue to be the mainstream domestic travel trend in 2021. Instead of traveling afield to mountains and rivers, the “staycation” is a chance to experience local surrounding areas while on vacation. Travelers choose to spend their holidays in well-known local hotels, using the hotel services to rejuvenate mentally and physically. The LN Garden Hotel, located in the center of Guangzhou has become a popular destination for staycations in Guangdong. The hotel is known for being forward-thinking, accessible, and suitable for residential use. The hotel has launched a special package for Guangdong residents in preparation for the coming Spring Festival holiday.
The LN Garden Hotel is conveniently located in Yuexiu District. It is a Platinum Five-star Hotel with a unique history and courtyard landscape. The LN Garden Hotel officially opened in 1985 as one of the first star-rated hotels under the reform and Economic Reform and open up policy. It was laid by Yang Shangkun, then Party Secretary of Guangzhou and former President of China, and its name was inscribed by Deng Xiaoping. The conceptual design of the hotel was designed by the modern architect, I. M. Pei. The two unique Y-shaped buildings provide a wide view of the guest rooms, offering optimal privacy while facilitating service efficiency. A Lingnan courtyard surrounds the center of the building, creating an oasis in the heart of Guangzhou.
The most eye-catching view from the courtyard of the LN Garden Hotel is an 18-meter-high waterfall. The waterfall flows straight down, and there are koi ponds and small bridges with blooming flowers. Guests will find themself transported to a wonderland in a landscape poem. When you pass the outer wall of the hotel, you can hear the sound of the waterfall but the courtyard is enclosed within the hotel walls. You can enjoy panoramic views of the waterfall from one specific location inside the hotel. This attracts many travelers who choose to stay in the LN Garden Hotel during their visit to Guangzhou. The hotel’s restaurant offers a view of the waterfall and tourists and locals line up every day to get a table. This 35-year-old hotel is a new “net celebrity” in the Internet age.
Once inside the LN Garden Hotel, you will find more than the waterfall courtyard. There are more than a dozen Lingnan artworks located at various check-in points in the hotel, making it something of a small Lingnan culture and craft museum.
When you step inside the hotel entrance, you will find the Yangjiang lacquer painting “A Hundred Beauties” to the right. In the painting, 100 concubines in gorgeous clothes are playing with dogs, admiring flowers, flinging butterflies, playing instruments, painting, and dancing. The painting vividly captures the scene of the Tang Dynasty Palace.
The backdrop of the hotel’s front desk is a large-scale gold-inlaid mural themed “Dream of Red Chamber”. More than 30 craftsmen worked on the mural over the course of seven months. It took 200,000 pieces (2 kg) of gold foil and 12 scenes of the Chinese masterpieces “Dream of Red Chamber” to complete the mural.
In contrast, the stone mural “Guangdong Village Landscape” is carved out of 122 pieces of white marble. The display is 24 meters long and 2.4 meters high. The mural is inspired by Guangdong paper-cut and was carved by four artists from Foshan Folk Art Society. The artists used black lines to outline the iconic scene of dragon boat racing in Lingnan Water Town, a scene that has been depicted for thousands of years.
Upon entering the hotel’s Chinese restaurant “Peach Blossom”, you will find a 6-meter-wide and 3.4-meter-high polychrome mural on each side. The mural tells the story of the famous Romance of the Three Kingdoms. 35 years ago, the creative team of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts visited Peach Blossom to create the hand-painted manuscript and then fired the colored porcelain. It is very precious. Nowadays, any missing piece of colored porcelain cannot be refilled.
As part of the LN Garden Hotel’s commitment to enriching the guest experience, a free hotel culture gold tour guide service was launched in October 2020. Professional tour guides are now available to take guests to visit all the cultural points in the hotel and share the heritage of Lingnan arts and the cultural symbols behind each scenic spot.
