Do not confuse with a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel. China already as those. This is a Doubletree by Hilton Resort and is the first Doubletree by Hilton Resort to open in Asia.
The resort is in Jiangnan Province, between Mount Ling and Lake Taihu and in the heart of the Yangtze River Delta. It has 487 rooms and a full range of recreational and business facilities. It is one hour’s drive from Wuxi Airport, and two hours’ drive from Shanghai, Hangzhou and Nanjing.
Martin Rinck, President — Hilton Worldwide, commented, "We could not have imagined a better location for our first Doubletree by Hilton Resort in Asia and our fourth Doubletree by Hilton hotel in China."
You will notice there is a difference between a Doubletree Resort and a Doubletree hotel. This resort is definitely for MICE groups.
The resort is set against the striking beauty of Lake Taihu, China’s third largest lake, with a clear view of the Lingshan Buddha, the world`s tallest Buddha statue measuring 88-meters high.
