Meliá International Debuts China Flagship Shanghai Hongqiao

SHANGHAI—Meliá Shanghai Hongqiao has debuted here as the brand’s flagship property in China.

Located near the National Exhibition & Convention Center, the luxury urban hotel is Meliá Hotels International’s third in China, following Gran Meliá Xian and Meliá Jinan.

The property features 187 rooms with high ceilings and fabric-lined walls, juxtaposed with marble and walnut wood, merging contemporary décor with accents of Oriental art. It is also home to Merkado, a dual Mediterranean-Pan Asian restaurant helmed by Chef Abel Lopez Reina, as well as  Meliá’s signature YHI Spa.
General Manager Marko Janssen said, service will focus on “every detail for a personalized experience. Building on the legacy of the Meliá brand, we’re incredibly thrilled to bring to life our ethos of Spanish service to distinguish ourselves as the benchmark for hospitality in this city and this country.”

THE LEVEL, the hotel’s exclusive guest floors, offers privacy, coupled with unobtrusive service. The LEVEL Lounge has a dedicated reception, private room, curated library and dining space that opens onto a veranda.

There are three Garden Villas that feature traditional Chinese design, each with its own garden and outdoor lounge. Villa guests can enjoy in-room check-in, limousine service, 24/7 butler service and private chef dinners upon request.

Meliá Hotels International plans to maintain its momentum in China, looking to more than double its portfolio in the market by 2020 with the addition of five hotels.
