Marriott International announced the opening of the 342-room Renaissance Huizhou Hotel in China. The hotel opened under a long-term management agreement with Guangzhou R&F Properties Development Co., Ltd. an existing long-term partner.
The hotel represents R+F’s sixth hotel with Marriott International, Inc. The hotel is the first Marriott property to open in Huizhou City, Guangdong Province and also the first Renaissance Hotels branded hotel to open in Pearl River Delta.
“We are delighted to be opening this magnificent hotel today – our 58th hotel in China,” explained Simon Cooper, president and managing director Marriott International, Asia. “You can see from this landmark building – the tallest in Huizhou – that our development partners Guangzhou R&F Properties Development Co., Ltd. have built a truly world-class hotel. We are confident that this will help to raise awareness of the city and drive great business to Huizhou and Marriott International is committed to promoting the hotel and destination to local and international travellers.”
The Renaissance Huizhou Hotel is ideally located in the heart of Jiang Bei Central Business District and serves as the highest building in Huizhou. The hotel’s close proximity to Huizhou City Government, International Convention Center, key office buildings and a luxury shopping mall make it a perfect location for those visiting the city on business.
Renaissance Hotels, which was acquired by Marriott International in 1997, has quickly become one of the most popular brands within the company’s portfolio. In 2008, the brand began an intense journey to firmly establish itself in the lifestyle hospitality space and differentiate itself from other Marriott International brands by introducing game changing programs including the Navigator program and RLife LIVE, one of the industry’s most well recognized entertainment platforms showcasing emerging musical artists through live performances in Renaissance Hotels around the world.
In May, Renaissance Hotels will launch its first global advertising campaign — “Live Life to Discover.” The new multi-faceted campaign, which comes to life through print, digital and on property experiences, provokes today’s lifestyle-oriented business traveler to explore a hotel or destination’s hidden gems through recommendations from on-site Renaissance Hotels ‘Navigators’ (the brand’s hospitality lifestyle concierge service).
