DDI created an iconic image for HIT’s Marriott Hotel that is inspired by the heritage and landscape of Northeast China. Distinctive design concepts were established based on guest profiles described in Marriott’s “The Gold Book.” Unique attributes of the guest experience include “vibrant energy, welcoming warmth, relaxed sophistication, thoughtful function-ality, enduring quality and deliberate distinction”. Northeast China and Harbin are international travel destinations. With Harbin’s northern latitude, we have chosen to link the spirit of the project to The North Star. The inspiration for the hotel comes from images of nature and is enhanced by heritage significant to the region.
DDI designed 414 rooms including presidential, VIP, and junior suites; 226 seat Chinese restaurant, 142 seat three-meal restaurant, 62 seat specialty restaurant, and 54 seat Lobby Lounge.
