Sofitel Debut in Guangzhou
French hotel chain Sofitel will open its first hotel in the Chinese city of Guangzhou this May.
The Sofitel Guangzhou Sunrich, located within the Tianhe District and neighbouring luxury shopping facilities, will feature 493 rooms, 17 meeting rooms, five bars and restaurants, and a 900 sq m grand ballroom. The hotel will have a soft launch on May 18, with a grand opening scheduled to take place on 10 June.
With Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou opening last year, and Sheraton scheduled to open a hotel in the city’s central business district in September, in terms of business travel, China’s Guangzhou city is proving particularly economically lucrative.
