Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is teaming up with Vietnam-based BRG Group to bring the Four Seasons brand to Vietnam’s capital city. In the center of downtown Hanoi, Four Seasons Hotel Hanoi at Hoan Kiem Lake will be near the Old and French Quarters, museums, galleries, shopping, restaurants, foreign embassies, Hanoi's commercial and diplomatic center, Halong Bay and Sapa.
Designed by international firms WATG Architects and SRSS Interior Design Studio, Four Seasons Hotel Hanoi at Hoan Kiem Lake will have 95 guestrooms and suites. It follows the Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, Hoi An in Quang Nam Province, which reopened in December 2016 after an extensive renovation.
Outside of Vietnam, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts signed the Four Seasons Hotel Dalian with Luneng Group—a wholly owned subsidiary of China's State Grid. The new Dalian hotel in norther eastern China's Liadong Peninsula will be developed in a mixed-use tower in the Donggang (East Harbor). Once construction begins in late 2017, NBBJ Shanghai and Hirsch Bedner Associates Singapore will handle the design of the hotel with 250 guestrooms and suites, which is slated to open in 2020.
Starting off its Asia-Pacific pipeline for the year, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts launched the Four Seasons Hotel Tianjin in late January 2017. Also in northern China, the CBD hotel with 259 guestrooms and 44 suites is near the main shopping street, nightlife and Beijing via the high-speed train. The new Four Seasons in Tianjin is the group's newest addition to the China by Four Seasons portfolio, which includes properties in Beijing, Shanghai (Puxi and Pudong), Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Macau.
