Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide signed of an agreement with Shanghai Huayu Real Estate Co. to bring its St. Regis brand to Shanghai. Scheduled for completion in early 2017, The St. Regis Shanghai Jingan will join the brand's presence in Greater China, where St. Regis currently has six properties and has an additional 10 in the pipeline — including The St. Regis Macao, which is set to open this December.
The St. Regis Shanghai Jingan will be located on West Beijing Road, near the West Nanjing Road business area in Jingan, a central business district. Part of a new mixed-use development, the hotel will have approximately 480 guestrooms, including 41 suites and 47 residences. All guestrooms will be located from the 29th to 59th floors, offering views of the Shanghai skyline. There will also be three-bedroom luxury St. Regis apartments on the top floors of the building.
The new hotel will also have three restaurants and an alfresco bar, wellness facilities including a spa, indoor swimming pool and a fitness center, as well as approximately 2,000 square meters (21,528 square feet) of event space.
