Marriott International will debut its St. Regis Hotels & Resorts brand in Hong Kong by early 2019 in collaboration with China Resources Property. The upcoming hotel will be Marriott's 10th property in the city.
This will be Marriott's second luxury hotel in the city joining the The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, which overlooks Victoria Harbour on the Kowloon side. The St. Regis property is being developed in Hong Kong's Wan Chai district, a busy commercial area known for trendy bars and restaurants and escalator walkway system.
Designed by André Fu, the 25-story St. Regis Hong Kong will have 129 suites. It will also be close to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Victoria Harbor and Kowloon Bay.
St. Regis Hotels & Resorts more than doubled its footprint in recent years. The brand's portfolio currently has more than 40 St. Regis hotels and resorts open worldwide. For Greater China, nine hotels are in the pipeline. These new properties will expand Marriott's portfolio of more than 6,400 properties in 30 hotel brands spanning 126 countries and territories.
January also marked the debut of Marriott's Delta Hotels brand in Asia-Pacific. The Delta Hotels Shanghai Baoshan launched in China on Jan. 2 with 399 guestrooms. The opening of the new downtown Shanghai hotel in the waterfront district of Baoshan is part of the group's goal to operate 66 Delta properties worldwide by the end of 2018. Delta Hotels became a Marriott brand in 2015, adding more than 40 properties to the Marriott portfolio. The brand’s hotels are in gateway cities in the U.S. and Canada.
A month before the new Delta property opened, Marriott launched its JW Marriott brand in Jaipur and Phu Quoc. Another JW Marriott hotel is slated to open in the Maldives in 2018 while the JW Marriott Bangkok undergoes an extensive renovation.
