Marriott International has opened a 333-room hotel in Ningbo, China under an agreement reached with Haicheng Investment Development and is offering a special opening rate of CNY698 ($100) including breakfast.
Located in the city's central business district, the Ningbo Marriott Hotel is within a 38-storey building that also contains office space, and near restaurants and entertainment spots. Guests can drive to Shanghai in 2.5hrs now that the Hangzhou Bay Bridge is completed.
The hotel features three restaurants, a fitness centre and indoor swimming pool, and will soon be opening a spa.
For the corporate traveller, it includes a business centre, executive lounge and lobby concierge desk. For conferences and social events, the property has 1,188 sq m (1279 sq ft) of flexible space, including a 720 sq m ballroom which can be divided into eight sections, and six additional meeting rooms.
”Ningbo's vibrant investment climate and considerable trade of volume provides an excellent source of business for the hotel,” said Marriott Asia-Pacific region executive vice president Geoff Garside.
Ningbo is a seaport and shipping its biggest business, but the city's economy is also driven by small-scale engineering, clothes companies, food processing and toy factories.
”We fully expect this property to be a welcome addition to the business and tourism infrastructure of this growing city,” added Garside.
