Marriott pursues Chinese growth with new Shanghai property

by | 13 Oct 2020 | Chains, Projects

The opening of Shanghai Marriott Hotel Pudong South, which boasts 241 rooms and a diverse array of F&B options, means Marriott Hotels now has seven properties in China’s largest city.

Maryland-headquartered hotel group Marriott International is continuing to grow its presence in the world’s most populous nation. Its latest offering, Shanghai Marriott Hotel Pudong South, is strategically located in an emerging business and leisure destination in the south-east of the city.

Marriott doubles down in China

It’s no secret that China is increasingly coming to dominate the global hotel industry. Frequently outdoing the US, for decades the undisputed centre of the hospitality world, in terms of new openings, the People’s Republic is on the up and Marriott knows it. This is no doubt why the hotel giant keeps returning to China to open more sites, the latest of which is an exciting property in Shanghai.

Henry Lee, president of Greater China for Marriott International, said: “We are delighted to unveil Shanghai Marriott Hotel Pudong South, the seventh Marriott Hotels property in Shanghai. It marks an exciting moment as we proudly continue the robust growth in the region, further showcasing the company’s strong commitment to China. The new Shanghai Marriott Hotel Pudong South is setting the stage for an inspiring guest experience with its modern space, sophisticated dining offers and host of personalised services.”

What’s in store for Shanghai

Shanghai Marriott Hotel Pudong South is a 241-key hotel in the city’s Pudong District, a nascent commercial and cultural hub known for its lush vegetation, and aims to connect its visitors with nature in this fast-growing metropolis. The hotel draws on the brand’s signature offerings of creatively designed spaces, intuitive services and exciting F&B options, and is an ideal choice for both business and leisure travellers.

The property is located in close proximity to Xinchang Ancient Town, as well as other local highlights, including Shanghai Disneyland, Haichang Ocean Park and Shanghai Wild Animal Park. Its well-appointed, stylish guest rooms are designed to be ideal for both working and relaxing, and are fully kitted out with flexible furniture suited to remote working. There are also 33 spacious Premier Rooms and six Executive Rooms, all with panoramic views of the city.

In addition, the scheme boasts a range of F&B options, including the all-day GOJI Kitchen Bar, the Man Ho Chinese Restaurant, specialty East Asian restaurant SMOKI MOTO and The Greatroom lounge and common area. Business travellers can avail themselves of the 2,650 sq m of flexible meeting and event space, meanwhile, and guests who like to keep fit on the go can take full advantage of the 24-hour fitness centre and pool.
