[photopress:_RITZ_shanghai.jpg,full,alignright]China Central Place in Beijing’s Central Business District, providing more than 230,000 square meters of office space, 160,000 square meters of retail shopping space and eight residential areas. Plus three soon-to-be operational luxury hotels.
Sofitel Wanda is expected to open this summer, followed by Ritz-Carlton Beijing and JW Marriott Hotel Beijing, both part of the same group, are scheduled to open in the fourth quarter.
The 590-room Marriott is the brand’s third in China, along with Shanghai and Chongqing. The 305-room Ritz-Carlton is the country’s fourth — adding to Guangzhou, Shanghai, and Beijing’s Financial Street.
Because of the hotels’ close proximity, the Marriot and Ritz-Carlton will be jointly operated under the same sales, marketing and finance groups — a first for Marriot.
Robert J. Lohrmann will be the managing director of The Ritz-Carlton Beijing and JW Marriott Hotel Beijing, overseeing two general managers. The illustration is from The Portman Ritz Carlton but it neatly gives you the idea of the standard of luxury to expect.
