Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts has announced the development of a new luxury hotel in Jinan, the capital of Shandong Province in eastern China, scheduled to debut in 2020.
Swissôtel Jinan will have 248 guestrooms, five dining outlets and approximately 31,000 square feet of event and banquet space. The hotel will also provide access to a Pürovel Spa & Sport - the company's Alpine-inspired signature wellbeing brand.
Part of a larger mixed-use development featuring residential, retail and office buildings, the hotel will be located in the Han Yu District, the new financial centre and research and development hub of Jinan. Transportation to the area is supported by nearby metro lines and the Jinan International Airport, as well as an extensive high speed railway system that offers convenient access to both Beijing and Shanghai.
Jinan is located in Shandong Province, and is a major national administrative, economic, and transportation hub for eastern China. The city bridges two of China’s great economic axes, the Yangtze River Delta and the Bohai Economic Rim, and is in close proximity to Tianjin and Qingdao ports. Jinan is referred to as the 'City of Springs' for its well-known 72 artesian springs, with one of the most scenic being Daming Lake, which features many towers, halls, pavilions, and corridors along its lakeside. The city is also a key centre for technology and innovation and is home to more than 40 universities, over 200 research institutes and 10 national laboratories.
