Marriott International celebrated the opening of the 383-room Renaissance Shanghai Caohejing Hotel in Shanghai. The hotel is managed in partnership with Shanghai Caohejing Park Huagang Properties Ltd., and represents the sixth Renaissance-branded hotel to open the city. Renaissance Hotels is the signature lifestyle brand within the Marriott International global portfolio of 17 hotel brands.
The hotel is centrally located in the Caohejing New Technology Development Zone in the Xuhui district, offering a retreat for business travellers in the heart of the neighborhood. Situated within five minutes of Shanghai Metro Line 9, the hotel boasts easy access to the nearby Hongqiao business district, and the shopping and dining hub of Xujiahui. The hotel is also conveniently located near the Hongqiao Transportation Hub and Shanghai International Airport.
We are delighted to partner with Shanghai Caohejing Park Huagang Properties Ltd on this new Renaissance Hotel,” said Simon Cooper, president and managing director Marriott International, Asia. “The opening of the Renaissance Shanghai Caohejing cements our position as the dominant player in Shanghai, representing our 19th hotel in this vibrant city,” he said. “It also demonstrates our confidence in the strength of the Renaissance brand, which continues to grow in China.”
Renaissance Hotels, acquired by Marriott International in 1997, has emerged as one of the most popular brands within the company’s portfolio. In 2008, the brand began an intense journey to firmly establish itself in the lifestyle hospitality space by introducing game-changing programmes including Navigator and RLife LIVE, one of the industry’s most well-recognised entertainment platforms showcasing emerging musical artists through live performances in Renaissance Hotels around the world. Both of these ground-breaking programmes will be offered to guests and locals alike at the new Renaissance Shanghai Caoheijing.
A natural continuation of the brand’s extraordinary journey, Renaissance Hotels launched its first ever global ad campaign, Live Life to Discover, earlier this year. The campaign represents the culmination of the global repositioning of the brand, and can be found at select airports throughout Asia, including Shanghai International Airport.
