Radisson lines up 280-key hotel in Henan province
Radisson Hotel Group has signed a deal paving the way for it to create the first internationally branded upper-upscale property in the fast-growing Chinese city of Changyuan.
One of the world’s largest hospitality companies has agreed to ramp up its presence in Henan province.
A rapidly developing location
After signing its latest project in the People’s Republic, Radisson Hotel Group is now preparing to open a stylish Radisson Blu-branded property in the east of Henan province. Currently under construction and expected to launch in late 2024, Radisson Blu Hotel, Changyuan will sit within a major new mixed-use project in Puxi.
It’s envisaged that the wider development will feature residences, malls, offices and conference facilities alongside Radisson Blu’s exciting scheme. The hotel itself is being developed by Henan Xunchi Real Estate Co, part of the Yilong Group.
“Radisson Hotel Group continues to break new ground in China with this outstanding new hotel,” said Katerina Giannouka, president in Asia Pacific for Radisson Hotel Group.
“Fast-growing second- and third-tier cities such as Changyuan, which have large populations and thriving industrial sectors, hold a great deal of potential for international upper-upscale hotel brands such as Radisson Blu. We are delighted to be part of this significant project, which will form part of an iconic new development in the city centre.”
“We are delighted to be working with Radisson Hotel Group on this project,” added Zhang Yongchao, general manager of Henan Xunchi Real Estate Co. “Our brand-new mixed-use development commands a prime downtown setting and will become a new landmark in Changyuan.
“To reflect the stature of this project, we needed a renowned international brand, and Radisson Blu is the perfect fit. We look forward to this partnership and towards the hotel opening.”
A hub for corporate travel
This new hotel will encapsulate the brand’s ‘Yes I Can!’ service philosophy and signature style. Its 280 rooms and suites, ranging between 42 and 84 sq m in size, will incorporate contemporary interiors and connected workspaces.
Amenities here will include an international all-day dining destination, specialist Chinese restaurant and lobby lounge, as well as an indoor swimming pool and well-equipped fitness centre. Aiming to become a key venue for events, the property will have eight function spaces – among them a 1,000 sq m ballroom – while Changyuan International Exhibition Center will also be within easy reach.
By staying here, guests will be a 90-minute drive from Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport and a 60-minute journey from a high-speed rail station. Radisson Blu Hotel, Changyuan is set to become only the brand’s second property in Henan province after Radisson Blu Hotel, Zhengzhou Huiji.
