Shanwei, China and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT), today announced the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Shanwei, which debuts as the first international hotel in Shanwei, a coastal destination in Guangdong province. The 11-storey, 288-room seaside getaway welcomes guests with extensive recreational and family-friendly facilities, a wide range of dining options and expansive event spaces, offering itself as the ideal destination for weddings, family getaways or conferences. The property is owned by Poly Developments and Holdings and managed by Hilton.
“DoubleTree by Hilton Shanwei is proud to be the first international hotel in Shanwei, a picturesque ocean city that is quickly becoming a destination of choice for leisure and business travelers from neighboring cities such as Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Hong Kong,” said Qian Jin, area president, Greater China & Mongolia, Hilton. “As the Shenzhen-Shanwei Special Cooperation Zone furthers the region to become a premier marine hub that sets the benchmark of world-class standards for businesses, residents and tourists, DoubleTree by Hilton Shanwei will play an integral role in the region’s economic development and be of strategic importance to Hilton’s development in China.”
DoubleTree by Hilton Shanwei is located along the scenic Jinting Bay, where guests can enjoy rooms and suites that offer panoramic ocean sunset views or stroll directly from the hotel onto seven kilometers of tranquil beach. The hotel’s proximity to nearby cities such as Guangzhou and Shenzhen makes it easy for urban residents to drive in for a weekend getaway. Shanwei Railway Station is only nine kilometers away, where guests can conveniently connect to nearby cities and international airports. With the hotel's easy access to public transportation, guests can also enjoy easy access to the downtown urban centers.
“As DoubleTree by Hilton celebrates its 50th brand anniversary this year, it enjoys continued rapid expansion in China as Hilton’s second-fastest growing brand in the Greater China region, proof that our exceptional facilities and warm hospitality resonate with our guests here,” said Shawn McAteer, senior vice president and global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “We look forward to delivering our personalized service and signature, warm DoubleTree by Hilton Cookie welcome in the relaxing oceanfront hotel – a destination in itself with upscale event facilities, cozy outdoor spaces and ample seaside recreation for the whole family to enjoy.”
