[photopress:IHC_swimming_pool.jpg,full,alignright]Intercontinental Hotels will open the Crowne Plaza Sun Palace Beijing in early 2008. The hotel will be located in the city centre, close to the Beijing International Exhibition Centre.
This is the fourth Crowne Plaza hotel in Beijing. Sun Palace will have 540 rooms, seven restaurants and bars, and over 3,400 square meters of meeting space which takes it into the MICE category. (Note that our illustration shows the swimming pool in the other Crowne Plaza but rest assured the plans for this hotel call for the same level of luxury.)
IHG currently operates 65 hotels in China, with an additional 60 in the development pipeline.
