Pan Pacific Hotels Group Debuts PARKROYAL Brand in China With Opening of PARKROYAL Dalian in 2020
Scheduled for 2020 – 216 Rooms
Dalian, the second largest city in Liaoning Province, is a major seaport and the financial, shipping and logistics centre in Northeast Asia. Commanding a height of 52 levels, PARKROYAL Dalian will be one of the tallest buildings in the city upon completion, offering panoramic views of both the sea and surrounding hills from its location at Youting Road. Within walking distance is city landmark Xinghai Square—the world's largest city square, Dalian World Expo Centre, and the Dalian Xinghai Convention & Exhibition Centre—which boasts 146,800 square metres of exhibition space. Both the Xinghai Bay Financial Business Area and Dalian Forest Zoo are an easy 10-minute drive from the hotel, while Dalian Airport can be reached in half an hour by car.
Multi-awarded design firm Gold Mantis, whose projects included 2008 Olympic Stadium (Bird's Nest) and National Grand Theatre, has drawn inspiration from Dalian's illustrious history as a trading hub between China and Russia to produce its unconventional design for this 216-key hotel, with breathtaking touches including a rooftop helipad for airport transfers, general sightseeing, and creative events. Scheduled for launch at a later phase are 112 units of serviced suites within the same building.
Dining and meeting at PARKROYAL Dalian promises to be a picturesque experience with the top three floors occupied by a rooftop bar, elegant Chinese restaurant, and all-day dining restaurant along with multi-function spaces respectively. A spa, indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and fitness room make up the wellness facilities on the fourth floor of the hotel. With the lead-in room category starting at 30 square metres, the hotel offers expansive rooms with polished brass, granite surfaces and wood panelling in warm tones that blend together to create a stylish, romantic interior reminiscent of luxury cruising.
The addition of PARKROYAL Dalian brings the expanding PARKROYAL network to 20 hotels, resorts and serviced suites in total across Asia Pacific, including key cities Singapore, Sydney, Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh City and Yangon. The PARKROYAL brand celebrates people and life with its human-centric design and passion for the well-being of others and the environment, and personifies supportiveness, energy and inclusivity. With this philosophy in creating real connections and joyous experiences, PARKROYAL brings out the best of people and the destination they are in.
