Nikko Hotels International announced that in October, it plans to open Hotel Nikko Taizhou, a new luxury hotel in Taizhou China, 155 miles northwest of Shanghai in central Jiangsu Province.
Hotel Nikko Taizhou will be located in Taizhou Data Industrial Park, a new complex that occupies 716,876 square feet in China’s first national medical high-tech zone called the Taizhou National Medical High-tech Development Zone, or China Medical City (CMC). Occupying 7,413 acres, CMC is expected to be China’s largest biomedical cluster. It will be composed of several major functions/areas, including research and development, medical/health services, manufacturing and a convention/exhibition center. It has already attracted global biopharmaceutical companies and research and academic institutions.
The new 200-room hotel will occupy 404,507 square feet on 19 floors, including one at the basement level. Its facilities will include seven banquet and meeting rooms, multiple dining facilities, a business center, a fitness club and an indoor pool. The hotel is a 45-minute drive to Yangzhou Taizhou Airport and three and half hour-drive to Shanghai Pudong International Airport.
The agreement to manage the hotel was made between JAL Hotels and BTG-Nikko International Hotel Management, a joint-venture company; and Taizhou Tongtai Investment.
The hotel will be the tenth Nikko Hotels International property in China after the 477-room Hotel Nikko Suzhou opens in May.
