Westin continues China expansion

Starwood continues to expand the Westin brand into China with the signing of its sixth Westin property, the 558-room Westin Beijing at Chaoyang, Beijing. The property will be the city’s second Westin. The hotel will be part of a multi-purpose complex comprising hotel, office towers and retail space, and will be located in Liangma He, at Chaoyang District. The famous Sanlitun bar street is located in Chaoyang district, as well as Beijing's evolving Central Business District and the Olympic Park that is being built for the 2008 summer Games. There is also easy access to the highway link to Beijing International Airport. The signing of The Westin Beijing at Chaoyang heralds the continued expansion of Westin Hotels & Resorts in China. Properties in Beijing, Guangzhou, Zhejiang and Nanjing are scheduled to open in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 respectively. “The location of this hotel in the exclusive district of Chaoyang reinforces Westin's new brand positioning around personal renewal by offering guests the services, products and amenities that allow them to relax and rejuvenate during their stay,” said Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia-Pacific president Miguel Ko. “Though room supply in Beijing is expected to increase significantly between now and 2009, demand for rooms is forecast to grow robustly at the same pace on the back of the upcoming Olympics and the capital city’s continued growth as a major commercial and tourist destination,” added Ko.
