Sofitel Beijing Central has been welcomed by Accor as the group’s 1,100th property in the Asia Pacific region, six months after announcing its 1,000th opening.
“We have had a record six months since announcing our 1,000th hotel with the Pullman Tokyo Tamachi late last year and it’s incredible to think that we have added another 100 hotels already since then,” said Michael Issenberg, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, Accor Asia Pacific.
“Sofitel Beijing Central will be a great addition to our network in China and will become one of the premier luxury hotels in the city.”
Accor has 38 brands within its portfolio and is heavily focused on further expansion in the luxury and lifestyle sectors. The opening of Sofitel Beijing Central brings the group’s luxury and premium hotels in the region to 320.
Sofitel Beijing Central is located in the heart of Beijing’s civic and diplomatic area, just moments from Jianguomen subway station. Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the National Museum of China and the National Grand Theatre are all within easy reach of the hotel.
It features 345 spacious luxury rooms and suites, with Sofitel Club floors providing generous circular bathtubs and access to the brand new Club Millésime Lounge that will be launched towards the end of 2019.
Sofitel Beijing Central will be the brand’s 23th hotel in China.
