[photopress:kunshan_traders.jpg,full,alignright]The Shangri La company will operate a new Traders Hotel, located on Xiao Yun Road, in Upper East Beijing.
The Traders Hotel, opening early August 2008 just in time for the Beijing Olympic Games, will be the group’s second Traders Hotel in the city. This Traders Hotel will be in the north east of Beijing’s Central Business District by the 4th Ring Road. (The image is of the Traders in Kunshan but it gives the general idea.)
Designed by Barcelona-based Ricardo Bofill, the hotel will feature 419 rooms with a minimum room size of 33 square meters.
There will be a total 2,000 square meters of meeting and function spaces — MICE again — and a business centre. Recreational facilities will include a health club, indoor swimming pool and spa with nine treatment rooms.
