AccorHotels, a leading international hotel operator, is further strengthening its presence in northern China with the announcement of the signing of three hotels in Beijing with Luneng Group.
The three projects, two of them new build hotels, are expected to add a total of 525 rooms to AccorHotels’ network in Greater China when they open in 2017 and 2018.
The three hotels include the 300-room Pullman Beijing Luneng, a 150-room MGallery Beijing Luneng both of which are set to open in Q4 of 2018 and the 75-room Mercure Beijing Luneng, a renovated project slated to open in Q4 of 2017.
“We are very excited to collaborate with Luneng Group, one of the leading real estate developers in China, for a batch of three projects in the metropolitan city of Beijing,” said Paul Richardson, Chief Operating Officer, AccorHotels Greater China. “This unprecedented, strategic partnership in the city involves three distinctive brands that will enable us to better cater to our guests’ needs while further strengthens our presence in the luxury and upscale segment which continues to be one of the key growth engines for AccorHotels’ expansion in China.”
Located in northeast Beijing’s cosmopolitan Shunyi district, Pullman Beijing Luneng forms part of a mixed-use project that blends a combination of residential, retail and office development. The newest member to join the upscale Pullman family, the hotel is a short walking distance to the Golf Country Club and Olympic Water Park and is just five minutes’ drive away from the Qiaobo Ski Stadium, making it a perfect option for leisure travelers.
MGallery Beijing Luneng, meanwhile, is located in the exclusive district of Grasse Town, an upscale villa development in Tongzhou. Nestled in high-end villas and an old canal with several golf and saddle clubs in close proximity, the hotel is a 15 minute drive to the Beijing International Airport, Tongzhou New Town, Beijing New National Exhibition Center and the Oriental Universal Studio.
Also located in Shunyi district is the Mercure Beijing Luneng, a stunning renovation project adjoining to a shopping mall and the International School of Beijing. The hotel features two restaurants, a lobby lounge as well as several meetings and events spaces for corporate functions and meetings.
The addition of these three hotels highlights AccorHotels’ solid growth pace in Beijing where its portfolio currently stands at 14 hotels across 6 brands. Notably, the signing of Pullman Beijing Luneng and MGallery Beijing Luneng, in particular, serves as the latest testament to the company’s commitment to bringing the most authentic and highest-standard French hospitality to travelers visiting the China capital.
A wholly-owned subsidiary of the State Grid Corp of China, Luneng Group is among the country’s Top 100 real estate companies tapping both residential and commercial property development.
