Nanjing Welcomes More Hotels In 2008

A new hotel invested in by Nanjing Dingye Investment Group is under construction and will open this year.

Located on Jiangpu Street in Pukou District, this new hotel has an investment of RMB200 million from Nanjing Dingye Investment Group. The 27-story hotel covers a construction area of 35,000 square meters. It is positioned as a five-star business hotel combining residence, dining, and meeting facilities. The hotel will be jointly managed by Nanjing Dingye Investment Group and Jinling Hotels & Resorts Corporation. The facilities and features of this new hotel will be consistent with Jinling's hotels.

Hou Feng, president of Jinling Hotels & Resorts Corporation, said that this new hotel is their ninth hotel property around Nanjing, and the other eight hotels are located in the main urban areas and the Jiangning District of the city.

According to local media, there will be five hotels of above three-star level opened in the Pukou District of Nanjing within this year. As of the end of last year, Pukou District had only five hotels of above three-star level. One important reason that many star-grade hotels have chosen Pukou District as a development location is that the Nanjing Underwater Tunnel will be formally opened by the end of this year or at the beginning of next year, making the distance and transportation time from main urban areas to Pukou much less than before.
