Starwood to open four new hotels in China during 2014

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide is expanding its luxury portfolio, comprised of the St. Regis, The Luxury Collection and W Hotels brands, by opening four new hotels in China by the end of 2014, including The St. Regis Chengdu; The Azure Qiantang, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Hangzhou; The Castle Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Dalian; and W Beijing - Chang’an.

This year, Starwood is on track to open more than 20 hotels across its nine brands in the region, including four openings from its luxury portfolio. In the past three years, Starwood doubled its luxury footprint in China, and the figure is expected to double again by the end of 2015.

W Hotels, which made a debut in mainland China with W Guangzhou last year, will open its new flagship property in Beijing this year with W Beijing - Chang’an. Further plans to debut the W brand in China include: Changsha, Chengdu, Macau, Shanghai and Suzhou. St. Regis will build on its well-established presence in China with the opening of The St. Regis Chengdu later this summer, along with new hotels in Changsha, Haikou, Lijiang, Macau, Nanjing, Sanya and Zhuhai in the next three years. In addition to The Castle Hotel, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Dalian and The Azure Qiantang, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Hangzhou, Starwood plans to expand the presence of The Luxury Collection brand in Nanning, Xiamen, Nanjing and Suzhou.
