Swissotel Hangzhou to open in 2018

Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts, a brand in the FRHI Hotels & Resorts (FRHI) portfolio, entered into an agreement with Hengli Management to manage Swissôtel Hangzhou, a new 400-room hotel being developed in China's Zhejiang provincial capital.

The hotel will enjoy a riverview location in the IOC project in Qianjiang Century CBD, adjacent to the Hangzhou Olympic Center and Exhibition Center. Qianjiang Century City is a financial and business center of Hangzhou. The IOC project includes large scale meeting and convention facilities, hotels, high-end residences, Grade A offices, and commercial and retail premises. It is the core of the area. A 300-room Fairmont hotel will also open in the same complex.

Expected to open in 2018, Swissôtel Hangzhou will join four Swissôtel properties already operating in China and is now the hotel brand's sixth property under development in the country, expanding the Swissôtel footprint in this key growth market. In total, FRHI has 20 hotels open or in varying stages of development in China.
