The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou opened on 11 March and is situated in a regional central business development in the heart of Pearl River New City, in the Tianhe District. The hotel offers more than 1,000sqm of meeting space, including a 648sqm ballroom, which is equipped with both wired and wireless internet access. All of the meeting rooms can be barnded by clients.
