China becomes Pullman’s number-one market worldwide with the opening of its 14th hotel
The upscale business hotel brand debuts in Anshan, China’s “Capital of Iron and Steel”
Pullman, Accor's upscale hotel brand for today's cosmopolitan traveller, announces the opening of Pullman Anshan Time Square, in downtown Anshan, the city dubbed China's "Capital of Iron and Steel". This new opening, in the north-eastern Liaoning Province, illustrates Pullman's vigorous expansion in China, which ranks it as the largest country market in the Pullman network. It has 14 hotels in that country, and will open a further 26 there by 2015.
"This new Pullman destination, which joins the network's 66 others hotels and resorts around the globe, is perfectly in tune with our brand: vibrant, cosmopolitan and in-style. We are delighted to treat our customers and the Anshan local community to this new upscale address that shows that business and pleasure are no longer contradictory terms," explains Xavier Louyot – Pullman Global Marketing SVP.
Located in Lishan District, Pullman Anshan Time Square enjoys easy access to the city's airports, and is near government buildings and downtown tourist attractions such as the Jade Buddha Garden and the Tanggangzi hot spring.
This first-class hotel providing a range of innovative amenities and services with a personal touch is a milestone in the city's developing hospitality landscape.
