 The Luxury Collection® Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. have announced the opening of The Grand Mansion, a Luxury Collection Hotel in Nanjing, China

The hotel is the brand’s seventh in China, and is situated on the lower stretches of the Yangzi River in a city that is full of historical heritage and is regarded as an up-and-coming university town. It features 158 luxurious guestrooms, including 15 suites and an expansive Presidential Suite which captures the rich history of the surrounding area. Led by I.M.
