It should open in October 2007 with the 318 room based in four structures. These include an existing six storey building previously named the Hong Quan Hotel which now becomes the South Wing. There will be a new 22 storey building with a 10 storey annex as the Main Tower. The North Wing will be a newly added two storey convention centre and the West Wing will be totally transformed but will in no way resemble the television series.
There will be all-day dining restaurant, a speciality Chinese restaurant, a lobby lounge bar, and a health club featuring an in-door swimming pool, sauna, steam bath and hair salon.
The hotel is being developed and will be owned by Shanghai Hong Quan Group, one of China’s Fortune 500 companies. The Radisson Hotel Shanghai Hong Quan brings the number of Carlson hotels currently under development in China to four. There are currently eight hotels already operating in China under Carlson hotel brands.
