Hirsch Bedner Associates designs Shanghai Marriott Hotel Parkview

Marriott International opened 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. Neighboring the Daning Lingshi Park, the largest green space in the downtown area, the hotel provides an environment surrounded by nature trails.

The Shanghai Marriott Hotel Parkview offers 317 rooms and suites that include 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 Thai skincare line.

The hotel is also ideal for MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibition). The 30,139 square feet of meeting space is located on one floor. It is the only hotel in Shanghai’s city center with two full-sized pillar-less ballrooms, as well as a selection of conference spaces. The larger of the hotel’s two pillar-less ballrooms measures 15,069 square feet and has two 700-square-foot LED screens, while the other measures 10,764 square feet and provides one LED screen. There are five flexible function rooms, and the hotel’s dedicated wedding planning services.

The hotel is home to four signature food and beverage outlets, including: Shanghai City Bistro, an all-day dining restaurant featuring live action cooking stations; Man Ho Chinese Restaurant, which specializes in authentic Cantonese and Shanghainese cuisine, and which has eight private dining rooms; Tatsumi, a contemporary Japanese and Korean diner; and The Lounge in The Lobby.

The hotel’s amenities include a 24-hour fitness center and indoor swimming pool, as well as access to a golf practice green and a tennis court.

On the 23rd floor, alongside the executive rooms and suites, the Executive Lounge offers business services as well as complimentary food and drinks for Executive Floor guests.

Shanghai Marriott Hotel Parkview is near a number of Shanghai’s attractions, including People’s Square and the Bund. It is also 25 minutes to Shanghai Hongqiao Airport and 45 minutes to Shanghai Pudong Airport.

With the addition of the 15th Marriott branded hotel in China, the company’s total portfolio grows to 66 hotels in the country, and 21 in Shanghai, where it is the largest operator of full-service hotels in the city.
