Marriott International Introduces The Sandalwood, Beijing - Marriott Executive Apartments
The Sandalwood, Beijing - Marriott Executive Apartments opened this week and promises to attract both business and family travellers with 168 one, two and three-bedroom, fully serviced apartments with around-the-clock staff -- a quiet oasis within the capital city’s busy central business district. Marriott International’s (NYSE:MAR) fourth extended stay property in China and second in Beijing is under a management agreement with Beijing Fu Wah Furniture Enterprise Company Limited, with Chris Shum as general manager and Bonnie Yang as director of marketing.
Located near Beijing International Airport and surrounded by cultural attractions, businesses and one of the largest golf driving ranges in Beijing, the Sandalwood MEA is the ideal setting for business travellers. The hotel is also within walking distance of the world-famous China Red Sandalwood Museum – the first and largest private museum in China.
Each spacious apartment is stylishly designed with clean lines, accentuated by hardwood floors, contemporary furniture and modern technology. Internet is available in apartments as well as in common areas. Walk-in closets in the master bedrooms provide guests with ample space to spread out, and a professional workspace and full kitchen give each unit a residential, home-like feel. Most apartments have private balconies and all are equipped with an entertainment system with 42" inch flat panel satellite television and DVD player.
An Asian and Western gourmet breakfast is served daily at the private resident lounge. Guests have 24-hour access to the fitness centre, complete with heated 25-meter indoor infinity pool, steam and sauna facilities, and a spacious playroom for children. Private meeting rooms are available as well. Laundry and personalized concierge services provide guests the advantages of a five star hotel.
Guests can enjoy shopping at China Central Place, the largest shopping complex in Beijing’s Chaoyang area. The Sandalwood MEA’s close proximity to the Beijing subway allows guests to manoeuvre around the city with ease. Families and extended-stay guests can unwind and relax as they stroll through Xinglong Park, located within walking distance of the property.
In addition to The Sandalwood MEA, Marriott International’s portfolio in China consists of three other extended stay properties, namely the 237-unit Shanghai Tomorrow Square Marriott Executive Apartments, the 224-unit Palm Springs, Beijing Marriott Executive Apartments and the 223-unit Union Square, Shanghai Pudong Marriott Executive Apartments. A fifth MEA property in China is slated to open by 2010 in Guangzhou.
The Sandalwood MEA, along with over 3,000 Marriott-affiliated hotels worldwide, participate in Marriott Rewards, the guest reward program that allows members to earn their choice of points or airline miles for each dollar spent during each stay.
