Fairmont Hotels & Resorts announced the development of a new hotel in Suzhou in the East of China. This new property should add 390 rooms to the brand’s portfolio in the country, with an opening scheduled in 2018.
"Fairmont Suzhou marks another key milestone for the Fairmont brand as we continue a steady and strategic pace of expansion into key Chinese markets," said Jennifer Fox, president FRHI International and president of Fairmont. "Not only is Suzhou one of the country's most popular travel destinations on a domestic level, it shows continued strong growth internationally and is increasingly attracting foreign investment. We look forward to providing a luxury base for those travelling to this vibrant city."
Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is a brand in the Fairmont Raffles Hotels International group (FRHI), which already operates several properties in China, and plans to establish a presence in Chengdu, Changsha, Hangzhou, Taiyuan and Nanning by 2019.
