An upscale Marriott-branded hotel is planned to open in Xi’an, China, in 2011 under a long-term management agreement reached between Marriott International and Shaanxi Chang’An Construction & Investment Development.
When opened, the 315-room Xi’an Marriott Hotel will be part of the Chang’An Metropolis Center on Nanguan Zhengjie, near the South Ancient City Gate in Xi’an’s central business district.
For social events and conferences, the Xi’an Marriott Hotel will have 1,535 square meters of space. There will be a 920-square meter grand ballroom that will be divisible into four sections, a 150-square meter junior ballroom, and five individual meeting rooms in varying configurations. Which makes it into a MICE hotel.
Another 20 hotels have been announced within the group and are scheduled to open over the next 36 months.
