SHANGHAI—Marriott International, Inc. continues its expansion in China with the opening of the 317-room Shanghai Marriott Hotel Parkview, bringing the total number of properties in China under the flagship Marriott Hotels brand to 15.
Marriott International manages the Shanghai Marriott Hotel Parkview under a long-term agreement with the owner, Shanghai Bao Hua Group. The hotel is situated next to the Multimedia Valley in Zhabei District and offers meetings and events facilities and is the only hotel in Shanghai’s city center with two full-sized pillar-less ballrooms, as well as a wide selection of large conference spaces.
“We are delighted to open this inspiring hotel in Shanghai which adds to our extensive portfolio in China,” stated Simon Cooper, president & managing director of Asia Pacific for Marriott International. “The Shanghai Marriott Hotel Parkview marks Marriott International’s first partnership with Shanghai Bao Hua Group with whom we share a common vision and drive to make this a truly stunning new hotel for this very important city. With the addition of our 15th Marriott branded hotel in China, our total portfolio grows to 66 hotels in the country and our 21st in Shanghai, where we are the largest operator of full-service hotels in the city.”
The Shanghai Marriott Hotel Parkview offers 317 rooms and suites that feature views of the park, all with a modern design by interior design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates. The hotel also provides brand new room amenities by Thann, the natural Thai skincare line, for an enhanced beauty and body care experience.
