Radisson Blu makes debut in Hangzhou
Radisson Blu, the upper-upscale hotel brand that delivers personalized service in stylish spaces, has expanded its portfolio in China with the opening of its first hotel in Hangzhou, the captivating capital of Zhejiang Province.
Radisson Blu Hangzhou Xintiandi is located in the city’s commercial district, surrounded by shops, offices and just 10 kilometers from West Lake, the enchanting UNESCO World Heritage landscape. This exceptional 18-story hotel features a contemporary design, with artistic interiors and a stunning free-standing staircase that creates a dramatic centerpiece in the lobby.
The hotel’s 265 rooms and suites are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including multimedia connectivity and refined amenities. Every guest’s journey underpinned by Radisson Blu’s unique “Yes, I Can!” service philosophy. For elevated stays, the top floor Executive Lounge provides a full range of bespoke business services and all-day refreshments.
Covering the entire fourth floor, the hotel’s conference and banqueting facilities include a 450-guest grand ballroom and four function rooms, all supported by the latest audio-visual equipment. Special occasions can also be enjoyed at a choice of restaurants and bars, including a classical Chinese restaurant with nine private dining rooms and an authentic Japanese dining destination, along with a casual café and a lobby lounge. Leisure facilities include an indoor swimming pool, a Thai-style spa and a modern fitness center.
Leisure travelers can easily access West Lake, Ban Shan Forest Park, Lingyin Temple and many other attractions, while the only resident Cirque du Soleil show in Asia is just 100 meters away from the hotel. Hangzhou East Railway Station can be accessed in just 20 minutes and Xiaoshan International Airport is 50 minutes away by car.
“Hangzhou is one of China’s most dynamic cities; a booming provincial capital that is rapidly becoming an international hub of trade and tourism. This makes it the perfect location for Radisson Blu, which is focused on expanding in the world’s most desirable destinations. We look forward to introducing new hotels into China’s fast-growing cities in future,” said Gary Ye, Vice President, Operations, China, Radisson Hotel Group.
Radisson Blu Hangzhou Xintiandi becomes Radisson Hotel Group’s second property in the city, following Radisson Hangzhou Qiangjiang, which opened earlier this year. This demonstrates the company’s successful strategy of introducing its world-renowned brands into key business and leisure markets in China, and all across Asia Pacific.
