Hilton is continuing to roll out its franchised DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel product with what is the first of its type in China.
The DoubleTree by Hilton, Shanghai-Pudong, has opened, its tenth hotel in what is one of the world’s fastest growing economies. The 850-room, two-tower, iconic hotel complex soars majestically 47 storeys over the Shanghai’s Pudong New Area and offers convenient access to Shanghai New International Exposition Center (SNIEC), Shanghai Central Business District and the Shanghai High-Speed Maglev Train to Pudong International Airport.
As part of the conversion of the former Sofitel JJ Oriental Hotel, the DoubleTree by Hilton, Shanghai-Pudong, has commenced a multi-million-dollar property refurbishment programme with a variety of new product, service and design enhancements throughout the hotel that are forecast to be completed in 2013.
Hotel amenities include more than 16,000sq ft of flexible meeting and special event space, a fitness centre, spa with men’s and women’s sauna and steam facilities, outdoor tennis courts, indoor swimming pool and extensive retail shops. As part of the hotel’s refurbishment programme, a new 800sq m (8,000sq ft) ballroom will be constructed, while all food and beverage outlets, meeting and banquet space and retail offerings will also be re-designed and revitalized. www.shanghaipudong.doubletreebyhilton.com
