Le Meridien opens first mainland China property

Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts continues its global expansion strategy with the opening of Le Méridien She Shan Shanghai, Le Méridien’s first property in mainland China. The hotel offers a new concept for the meetings, incentive, conference, and convention business in Shanghai. Visitors will have the chance to meet in a setting that delivers a “retreat in style”. Le Méridien She Shan Shanghai offers a unique environment where the combination of modernity and natural surroundings create an atmosphere of peace. The area is also home to the oldest cathedral in the East – the She Shan Observatory – and the Natural Bird Park. Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts regional area manager for Shanghai Didier Tourneboeuf said: “As Shanghai continues to host the world’s political, business and social elite, business travellers are demanding new levels of creativity, service and facilities but more importantly, a genuinely new experience within Shanghai. “Our focus will be to continue to attract both international and local business events, whether meetings, conferences or conventions.” The hotel has over 300 rooms and a conference capacity of nearly 2,500 guests and is set in 47km of natural countryside. It is conveniently located just a taxi-ride away from the domestic airport – 20 minutes from Hongqiao Airport, 60 minutes from Pudong and just 40 minutes from downtown Shanghai. Facilities for the meetings, incentives and exhibition markets will include a 500-seat auditorium with simultaneous translation facilities, a ballroom for 1,900 delegates and a fully manned business conference suit with six meeting rooms, plus state-of-the-art AV equipment. A spa with treatment rooms will open shortly.
