We are digging deep into our roots, which are firmly in Asia, to offer travelers a unique experience — a blend of contemporary Chinese meets modern Italian.’
Marco Polo Hotels, owned by the Hong Kong Wharf Group, last year added a new hotel in China, the Marco Polo Shenzhen in the Futian District of Shenzhen in China. It also added a new sales and development office in Shanghai, complementing existing sales offices in Beijing. It has also announced new projects in Wuhan and Chengdu. In April, it will open the Marco Polo Parkside in Beijing, located only 800 meters from the entrance to the 2008 Olympic Games.
A December opening is planned for the Marco Polo Wuhan which will be the centerpiece of Wharf China’s new development, Wuhan Times Square. Marco Polo Hotels now has a portfolio of 13 properties in Asia including: Marco Polo Parkside, Beijing (2007); Marco Polo Xidan, Beijing; Marco Polo, Chengdu (2009); Marco Polo, Shenzhen; Marco Polo, Wuhan (2007); Marco Polo, Xiamen; Marco Polo, Wuxi (2011).
