Sheraton Qiandrao Lake: China
Our World | On 14, Apr 2010
Starwood has opened its 1000th hotel, the Sheraton Qiandao Lake Resort in China.
The resort is located on the shores of Qiandao Lake in Chun’an County, Hangzhou. The 250-room property offers 1,694sqm of event space, five bars, lounges, restaurants and a spa.
As one of the first major chains that ventured into China back in the 1980’s, it seems a fitting tribute that the chains’ 1000th hotel will be in China. Experts suggest that this region is in line for vast growth over the next decade and hotel chains seem to be following suit.
Starwood are excited by this new property and state that they feel it is “emblematic of their history and bright future”. The group also plans to open 300 additional hotels in the next three to four years, with targets to double its hotel stock in China to 100 hotels by 2012.
