Radisson Hotel Group has opened a new Radisson hotel in Suzhou in eastern China's Jiangsu province.
Developed by Suzhou Zheng He Investment Co., the new-build Radisson Suzhou is part of a mixed-use development with an office tower. It is also within the Suzhou Science and Technology Town, also known as Suzhou New District, home to emerging industries specializing in high-tech innovation and new energy models.
Radisson Suzhou has 138 guestrooms and suites, an all-day restaurant, a specialty Chinese restaurant, a lounge, a 24-hour fitness center and 667 square meters of function space.
“Mainland China is a key area of focus for Radisson...which is perfectly suited for the country’s fast-growing second- and third-tier cities such as Suzhou,” said Gary Ye, VP/operations, China, Radisson Hotel Group.
The hotel also marks Radisson Hotel Group’s entry into Suzhou, the second-largest city in Jiangsu province.
RHG expects the Radisson Suzhou to be a “significant” property for the company as it expands across the Asia-Pacific region. This growth will focus on fast-growing cities in some of Asia’s largest and most-populous countries, including China, India and Indonesia, according to the company. Radisson’s growth strategy in China is a key initiative in Destination 2022, the group’s five-year strategic operating plan and with 35 properties open and under development across 21 cities in China, the group plans to triple its portfolio of hotels by that year.
Just last week, the Radisson Ningbo Beilun opened in the port city of Ningbo, Zhejiang province, the third hotel for the brand in Mainland China.
