Beijing To Soon Welcome New Conrad Hotel

Hilton Hotels Corporation has signed a management agreement with China Merchants Property Development Company Limited for the Conrad Beijing, one of Beijing's newest luxury hotel developments.

Scheduled to be open at the end of 2010, the Conrad Beijing will join Conrad Hotels & Resorts, the global contemporary luxury hotel brand of the Hilton Family of Hotels, as it expands its luxury portfolio in China. The Conrad Beijing will be located in the city's Central Business District, close to the newly built China Central TV Tower.

Koos Klein, area president for Hilton Hotels Asia Pacific, commented, "The Conrad Beijing will be a stunning addition to our growing portfolio of luxury properties in China, building on the success of the Conrad Hong Kong which opened in 1990 and our upcoming Conrad Shanghai which opens in August this year."

The hotel will feature 300 guest rooms, an urban spa, state-of-the-art meeting facilities and recreational facilities. Banquets and meeting facilities will not only accommodate guests' needs but offer best in class facilities and catering for Beijing residents' events and weddings.

Shao Bin Lin, CEO of China Merchants Property Development Company Limited, commented, "We are excited to introduce the Conrad Beijing and are confident that the high-end appeal of the Conrad brand and the property's luxury design and location will ensure it is a first choice for travellers to Beijing."
