Shangri-La Hotels has continued to expand its portfolio of properties in China, with the opening of the Shangri-La Hotel, Manzhouli.
The city in northeast China shares a 54-kilometre border with Russia and is China’s busiest land port entry.
Shangri-La Hotel, Manzhouli is the group’s third hotel in Inner Mongolia following its sister properties in Huhhot and Baotou.
Shangri-La Hotel, Manzhouli is a short stroll from the main shopping and entertainment district, 20 minutes from the airport and within a five-minute drive of the railway station.
Designed by Eva Wan Studio, the 235-room hotel including 24 suites takes on a contemporary designed scheme, accented by Chinese and Mongolian soft furnishings.
“We are delighted to bring to Manzhouli the Shangri-La brand,” said Greg Dogan, president and chief executive officer of Shangri-La International Hotel Management Ltd.
“Manzhouli is one of China’s most important trading ports and a growing tourist destination.
“Our new hotel will cater to the increasing demand for international luxury hotels in this city and will further strengthen Shangri-La’s presence in mainland China, which remains the key focus of the group’s expansion plan in Asia.”
Shangri-La Hotel, Manzhouli has more than 4,000 square metres of MICE space.
The Grand Ballroom is pillar-free with a ceiling height of 7.5 metres and can accommodate more than 1,500 guests’ theatre-style and 1,200 guests for banquets.
With direct lift access from the car park, the ballroom can be easily transformed into a car showroom.
In addition, the hotel provides one VIP reception room and four multi-purpose function rooms, most with natural daylight and ranging in size from 105 to 173 square metres.
Other facilities include a 24-hour business centre and a shopping arcade connecting to the hotel.
