Ben Wu－广州花园酒店活动运营经理－Event Experience Manager, LN Garden Hotel, Guangzhou.
DB: 你在一家在广州拥有超过30年的酒店工作感觉如何？ How do you feel working for a hotel that has a history of more than 30 years?
It’s a historic and iconic hotel with lots of great stories and memories. I grew up playing along the wooden spiral staircase and running around the lobby. Working in the hotel certainly gives me a feeling of home and ownership, a sense of belonging.
DB: 广州花园酒店在过去十年曾荣获许多荣誉，你能向我们列举一些吗？We know that Garden Hotel, Guangzhou has won many honors in the past decade. Could you name some for us?
We have been honored with awards such as the TOP 10 Glamorous Hotels of China in the 8th China Hotel Starlight Awards, the Top 100 Most Popular Company with Consumers in Guangzhou, the Best Selling Hotel, the Top 30 Best Employers of Guangzhou from the China’s Annual Best Employer Campaign, the China Hotel Gold Star Award, and have received the Best Business Hotel in Guangzhou award 11 times. These are just a few of the hotel’s many awards and are a testament to our ongoing commitment to serve our guests and business partners.
DB: 广州花园酒店的大堂一直都亮眼夺目，你能说说其设计的理念吗？The hotel lobby is always an eye-catching spotlight. Could you tell us about the concept of its design?
The hotel was designed by the renowned architect I.M. Pei, and the magnificent golden mural in the lobby is is the most prominent artistic feature of the hotel. It is the largest gold-foil marble mural in China and features the “Granny Liu’s Tour of the Grand Garden” scene from the classic Chinese novel Dream of The Red Chamber which embodies the glamorous life of the era and depicts the 12 beautifies of Jinling as depicted in the novel. It reflects the luxury and grandeur of China’s past while adding to the beauty of the hotel’s great interior.
DB: 酒店内有许多用餐场所，对于那些喜欢喝早茶的人而言，你会推荐他们到哪个餐厅用食? There are many dining venues in Garden Hotel, Guangzhou. Which dining venue would you suggest for those who have a thing for morning tea?
For morning tea, I highly recommend the Lai Wan Market. The restaurant’s environment was inspired by the historic ”Lychee Bay” of ancient times, where merchants sold street food and local produce from sampans docked along the shores of the Pearl River. To completely immerse guests in the experience, we have designed the tables and chairs in the fashion of traditional sampans upon the river. In addition, we have kept the time-honored tradition of the rolling Dim Sum cart, which has disappeared from most other Cantonese restaurants in Guangzhou.
DB: 请用一句话描述未来十年后的广州花园酒店。Use one sentence to describe what Garden Hotel, Guangzhou will be like in 10 years.
LN Garden Hotel is like a brother to me, not only because I grew up nearby, but also because we are almost the same age. In the next 10 years, I would like to grow with the hotel, as it develops further within the Lingnan group, and remain the top hotel brand representing Chinese culture, and our great city of Guangzhou.
