Starwood Hotels & Resorts Opens Its 1000th Hotel in China

News The opening of Sheraton Hotel in China is just part of Starwood Hotels & Resort’s plan for the next few years to open 300 more hotels around the globe. According to Frits van Paasschen, President and CEO of Starwood, there is no ampler ground for hotel business to grow in the whole world than China. “…We plan to double our footprint to 100 hotels by 2012,” said Frits van Paasschen. This year, Starwood Hotels & Resorts will open more than 20 new hotels in Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and other places.

The new 250-room Sheraton Hotel is located on the shores of China’s renowned Qiandao Lake, located in the vicinity of the Yellow Mountain Range. This is where the lake gets its crystal clear waters from. Submerged under water are the remains of an ancient Chinese city. There is a large park extending almost 1,000 square kilometers. Qiandao Lake is an attraction for tourists seeking an opportunity for popular outdoor activities, such as climbing, cycling, snorkeling, and more.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., one of the world’s largest hotel companies, holds more than 1000 properties in about 100 countries. Sheraton is Starwood’s most significant hotel brand, which has contributed to the company’s expansion in developing markets.
