Radisson Hotel Group continues to bet strongly on China and its booming domestic market. The hotel group has announced it will open a new property at Beijing Daxing international airport in 2022. This will follow a recently opened property in Nanjing. The group also plans to move to Changyuan, in Henan province.
The Radisson Collection Resort, Nanjing, is a chic new five-star retreat located within Jiangsu Horticultural Exposition Park. Nestled on the banks of a lake and surrounded by floral gardens, hot springs and mountains, Radisson Collection Resort, Nanjing is inspired by the scenery of its destination. It offers 151 rooms and suites with views over the garden or the lake.
And the group has now signed on for another property. It will manage the brand-new Radisson hotel at Beijing Daxing International Airport, the new gateway of the Chinese capital. Opened in 2019, Daxing was designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. It is expected to handle 72 million passengers per year by 2025, rising to 100 million in the longer term.
Scheduled to start welcoming guests in the first quarter of 2022, the Radisson Beijing Daxing Airport will be an upscale hotel located within the Airport Economic Zone, just 1.2km from the international terminal. The hotel will form part of an eco-friendly, mixed-use development that will include upon completion various hotels, grade A offices and retail outlets. It will also look to play a role in hosting athletes and attendees during the Beijing Winter Olympics 2022.
The 239-key hotel will feature contemporary-style rooms averaging 32 sq m and suites up to 109 sq m which will offer the Radisson brand’s signature sleep experience. The hotel will have a strong MICE element. Six function spaces include an intimate boardroom, four meeting rooms and an impressive 300-pax ballroom, supported by a business centre and VIP reception area. A gym, an indoor pool, yoga room and retail boutiques as well as international and Chinese food outlets will be available.
