Shangri-La’s Hotel Jen brand is to open a third property in mainland China in January with a presence in the Beijing World Trade Centre development in the city’s central business district.
The brand’s chief operations officer, Lothar Nessmann, said the new hotel would follow the philosophy of offering independent business and leisure travellers “a fuss-free stay that offers quality, comfort and value with distinctive local experiences”.
Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts launched the Hotel Jen brand two years ago and there are now 10 hotels in the Asia-Pacific region, including Hong Kong and Singapore. Upcoming properties in Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia have also been announced.
Features of the Beijing property include 450 rooms and suites with city views and the latest air-purification system throughout.
Instead of a traditional business centre, the hotel will offer a “co-working space” with a café, 13 meeting spaces and a multi-function venue for up to 300 people.
General manager Clifford Weiner, who moves from the Singapore property, added: “We aim to create and nurture an environment that encourages new ways of conducting business and stimulates interaction with innovative spaces that include meeting venues, a fitness centre and gastropub.”
