First Doubletree by Hilton in Eastern China Now Open near Kunshan and Shanghai
HUAQIAO, China -- Hilton Hotels Corporation has announced the opening of Doubletree by Hilton Huaqiao/Kunshan, the first Doubletree by Hilton branded hotel in East China. The newly built, 397-room hotel is located in the new Huaqiao Central Business District, which is strategically located between Shanghai and Suzhou -- regarded as two of China’s top five economies. Situated along the main expressway that connects Shanghai and Suzhou, the Doubletree by Hilton is well positioned to Shanghai’s two major airports and is within close proximity to Shanghai Automobile City and China’s Formula 1 racing circuit.
Owned by Kunshan Guangting Property Co. Ltd. and managed by Hilton Hotels Corporation, the newest member of the Doubletree collection is just 15 km from Kunshan and 30 km from the city centre of Shanghai in an ideal location for both business and leisure travelers. The 24-story hotel features more than 2,500-square-meters of meeting and banquet space with state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment, an open-air, lushly landscaped rooftop garden, a heated indoor swimming pool, a Doubletree Fitness by Precor® facility, and multiple dining and gathering options including a signature Sui Yuan Chinese restaurant featuring 15 private dining rooms.
Martin Rinck, president Hilton Hotels Corporation Asia Pacific, commented, “We are delighted to introduce our second Doubletree by Hilton hotel in China and in Asia. This is a milestone in our expansion plans for the Hilton Family of brands, and the Doubletree brand, following the successful launch of our Doubletree hotel in Beijing during the Olympics. We are confident the relaxed warm service and contemporary style of the Doubletree hotels will be a hit among travelers in China and beyond.”

As one of the upscale hotel brands in the Hilton Family of Hotels, Doubletree by Hilton introduces business travelers and tourists in China to the brand’s longstanding tradition of distinctively designed properties that reflect the destination and surrounding area.
