"Asia plays an important part in Regent's global expansion plans; we see tremendous potential for hotels in major cities throughout the region," said Steven Pan, chairman of Regent Hotels & Resorts. "Key to our success in the region is partnering with the right people with whom we share the same values. Hua Hong Group is such a company and I am thrilled to be working alongside Zhang Hongshan and his team on this exciting development."

Regent Place Harbin will be Regent Hotels & Resorts' fourth property in China, following the launches of Regent Chongqing and Regent Place Xian in 2016 and 2017 respectively and its current property Regent Beijing. The group also has hotels in Berlin, Phuket, Singapore, Taipei, Turks & Caicos and Montenegro.

The Regent brand returned to its Asian roots in 2010 with an acquisition by Taipei-based FIH Regent Group.
