Super 8 Hotels has opened its Shenzhen Area Partner Office as well its first hotel in Shenzhen.
This is our first property in Guangdong and our first Area Partner Office in Guangdong. Both of these developments reflect our excitement about the prospects of Southern China's economy hotel market, said Super 8 China CEO, Mitchell A. Presnick. Shenzhen is directly adjacent to Hong Kong, and for almost three decades has played a pivotal role in China's development. We believe economy hotels like Super 8 will play a leading role in Shenzhen's hotel industry.
The new Shenzhen Area Partner Office will assist with Super 8 service support as well as franchise development. Super 8 opened its first hotel in China on June 8 2004, and today has 55 hotels either open or scheduled to open soon in 32 cities.
Super 8 China Senior Vice President of Operations, Craig Evans represented the giant American hotel chain at the opening ceremony for the Area Partner Office and the new Shenzhen Super 8 hotel. Dignitaries from China included Wang Si Liang, Board Chairman of Shenzhen Peng Yue Hotel as well as Ms. Zheng Wei Ling, Chairman of Shenzhen Tourism and Hotel Committee.
The number of excellent Chinese companies hoping to partner with Super 8 has exceeded our original expectations, Evans said. We are pleased to have been able to select a great partner in the influential Guangdong market.
We believe the reason more and more companies want to join with Super 8, Evans continued, is guests and hotel owners are experiencing first-hand our efficient, process oriented management, clean facilities, and friendly staff.
We are very happy to have the opportunity to cooperate with the famous American brand Super 8, said Wang Si Liang of the Shenzhen Area Partner office. We are particularly interested in their advanced economy hotel management and operations systems, which will help us to support new Super 8 hotels in Southern China to provide Super 8's famous ‘Clean, Friendly, and Consistent' service.
Word has spread quickly among hotel owners around China about Super 8 quality, training programs, and operational excellence, said Presnick. We now have many Super 8 hotel owners applying to open a second, or even a third, Super 8 property. As soon as each property has met all of our stringent training and hardware requirements as well as received all necessary government approvals, we will allow them to begin operations.
Earlier this year, Super 8 opened China Area Partner Offices in the the northern city of Dalian, the metropolis of Shanghai, and the southern city of Xiamen, all popular destinations for tourists from both China and abroad.
