Meliá signs second hotel in Shanghai
Leading Spanish hotel group Meliá Hotels International (Meliá) has announced the signing of Meliá Shanghai Parkside, a new property located within the core area of Shanghai International Tourism and Resorts Zone.
The hotel will be the group’s ninth property in China and second in Shanghai, further underscoring Meliá’s commitment to expanding its footprint in the country.
The new Meliá Shanghai Parkside, developed by Shanghai Shendi Garden Investment & Construction Ltd., a full subsidiary of Shanghai Shendi Group Co., Ltd., aims to tap into the fast growing demand for travel accommodation and F&B facilities from business and leisure tourists to this booming area in Shanghai.
Bernardo Cabot Estarellas, senior vice president Asia Pacific of Meliá Hotels International, said: “We are enormously proud to embark on this new project alongside Shanghai Shendi Garden Investment & Construction Ltd.
“With Meliá Shanghai Parkside, our company will become an established leader in hospitality development in this area, bringing our strong resort history and management expertise to life at this new property.
“We are confident that Meliá Shanghai Parkside will set the benchmark for personalised service and luxury travel accommodation for visitors to this area.”
Meliá Shanghai Parkside, which is scheduled to open in early 2018, will include a total of 88 rooms in its first phase. Conveniently located right off the main entrance of Shanghai Disneyland, the property can be easily accessed via metro Line 11. In addition, it is only 20 minutes from Pudong International Airport, the largest airport in Shanghai and a major international transportation hub.
Meliá currently has 17 properties in Asia, and has ambitious plans to operate more than 40 by the year 2022.
