Pullman makes its debut in historic Chinese city
The launch of a 213-key Pullman property represents the first international premium branded hotel in Yueyang, a vibrant trading hub on the Yangtze River.
The Pullman Yueyang is now welcoming guests to the heart of this ancient Chinese city in Hunan, offering convenient access to popular tourist destinations, the region’s only international trade port and a major airport. We find out more about this stunning property.
Panoramic views and a warm welcome
Pullman Yueyang offers 213 elegant rooms and suites, many of which feature balconies overlooking Dongting Lake.
The beautiful natural surroundings are reflected in the rooms whose design and decor evoke images of water and forests. In addition, warm hues of yellow and red create a welcoming atmosphere, inviting guests to really take their time and relax.
Gary Rosen, chairman and chief operating officer, Accor Greater China, said: “Pullman Yueyang, as the only internationally renowned premium branded hotel in the city of Yueyang, will help accelerate the development of the city’s business sector with unique brand concept and facilities to support meetings, conferences and events.

Pullman Yueyang will blend in beautifully with the cultural scene of this remarkable and historically significant destination.”
Upscale facilities for business and leisure travellers

A lakeside all-day-dining restaurant offers a sumptuous buffet for breakfast and dinner decked out with local and international favourites, and five private dining rooms are available for business dinners or intimate family gatherings.
