December 13, 2011 - Shanghai, China
-- The 18th and largest hotel from Marriott International in Shanghai has opened its doors in the heart of the city centre. The 720 guest room Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre stands out as a flagship hotel for the Marriott Hotels & Resorts brand in China. Offering unmatched hospitality, an unbeatable location and state-of-the-art contemporary amenities, the 39-story hotel features five unique dining destinations and more than 2,000 square meters of dedicated event space.

Ideally located on Xizang Middle Road and overlooking People’s Square – the official geographic centre of the city – Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre provides effortless access to the city’s finest cultural, entertainment and shopping attractions. Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street, the Bund, and People’s Square (including Metro Lines 1, 2 and 8) are all within close walking distance.

Exceptional thought and craft has gone in to the design of this upscale hotel to ensure it meets the needs of today’s discerning business and leisure travellers. "Having opened several hotels with Marriott International in Shanghai and abroad, I truly believe that this hotel is poised to make a significant impact in the city,” said Meng Lo, general manager of Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre.

Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre’s 720 well-appointed guest rooms feature 42-inch LCD televisions with plug-and-play MP3 and laptop connectivity, iPod docking stations, high-speed wireless and wired Internet, ergonomic work space, luxury bedding and magnificent marble bathrooms. The expansive 37th-floor Executive Lounge, one of the largest in the city, provides an exclusive access for guests, with complimentary breakfast, all-day refreshments and evening cocktails, plus made to order business amenities and premium personalized services.

The hotel’s five restaurants and lounges are destinations in themselves. Inagiku, the renowned century-old Japanese restaurant chain is entering the Shanghai market with a team of experienced Japanese chefs led by Master Chef Shinji Morihara. Signature Chinese dining experiences are available at Man Ho, which serves authentic Cantonese and local Shanghainese cuisine. Guests can also enjoy international flavours at Shanghai City Bistro; fresh coffees and bites-to-go at Java+. The Lounge features an impressive 30-meter-high Winter Garden atrium providing a stylish setting for guests to enjoy Afternoon Tea or a classic cocktail.

A key feature of the hotel is its comprehensive meetings and events facilities. The entire fifth level is a dedicated events floor offering more than 2,000 square meters of multi-functional space, including two pillar-free ballrooms and seven break-out rooms - six of which offer natural light. Standing out from its upscale competitors, Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre boasts a unique high-resolution 9 x 5 meter LED display wall in the Grand Ballroom for high impact presentations, plus a range of sustainable meeting packages, complete with a carbon offset program.

After a day of meetings or sightseeing, guests can take a dip in the 25-meter indoor pool with Jacuzzi, steam room and aauna, work out in the fully equipped gym or enjoy a relaxing massage in one of the seven private treatment rooms at The Spa.
