The JW Marriott Hotel Xi’an is ideally situated in the central business district of the Xi’an Economic and Technological Development Zone, close to a variety of renowned attractions such as the Daming Palace National Heritage Park and the Ancient City Wall.

Both the Xi’an North Railway Station and Xi’an Xianyang International Airport can be reached in less than thirty minutes by car.
The hotel’s interiors, designed by HBA Hong Kong, reflect the over 3,000-year-old rich history of Xi’an by transporting visitors along the Silk Road through curated artworks and thoughtful details. In the first-floor arrival foyer, a modern installation depicting an archaic carriage evokes the historical significance of Xi’an to travellers from bygone eras. The hotel has 333 guest accommodations, 13 of which are suites with contemporary amenities. On the 25th through 37th floors of the hotel, all guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with breathtaking views of the city.
