Doubletree By Hilton Arrives In Qingdao, China
New hotel marks the expansion of upscale Hilton Family Brand in China
This newly redeveloped 320-room (including 24 suites) hotel, with extensive meetings and events facilities designed to cater for up to 750 people, is owned by the Qingdao Sunkin Group. The hotel will offer business, leisure and MICE travellers the chance to experience the Doubletree approach to professional, relaxed and refreshing hospitality.
Strategically located in the heart of the Chengyang District and only nine kilometres from Qingdao International Airport, the hotel is convenient for attractions such as the famous German influenced architecture of Qingdao, the Tsingtao International Beer Museum, local hot springs and an Olympic Sailing Centre, all making for a leisure or business stay with a difference.
Speaking about the new hotel, Martin Rinck, President Asia Pacific – Hilton Hotels Corporation, commented: “We are delighted to announce the opening of Doubletree by Hilton Qingdao/Chengyang. The contemporary style, quality and versatility of the Doubletree by Hilton brand are proving to be popular features among travellers in China and this latest addition will enhance our portfolio of Hilton hotels in the country while symbolising our commitment to further expanding our presence across the Hilton Family of Hotels in Asia.”
The Doubletree by Hilton Experience

Superior Recreation and Delicious Dining Facilities
And as you would expect with a member of the Hilton Family, gourmands at the hotel will be spoilt for choice with the culinary offerings including the Riverside Cafe serving an international buffet daily or the Garden View Lounge providing a quiet space for guests who would like to retreat to a cosy corner for a drink. Guests can also experience top-quality seafood cooked in typical Shandong and Guangdong style at the Harbour Seafood Restaurant, and the HanJiang Korean Restaurant offers a taste of traditional Korea with its exquisite Korean dishes.
As with all Doubletree hotels wireless Internet access and advanced audio and visual equipment are available in all public spaces.
Hotel Owners Look Forward to Long-Term Doubletree by Hilton Success“We expect that the hotel’s convenient geographic location will enable it to quickly penetrate into both the local and foreign markets, invigorating the tourism industry in Shandong,” said Mr. Stefan Schmid, General Manager of the hotel.
