Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts will launch its second Kerry Hotel on Saturday 19 November 2011. Marking the completion of the first phase of a multi-million dollar renovation, Shangri-La’s Kerry Centre Hotel, Beijing will be rebranded as Kerry Hotel Beijing. It joins its sister hotel, Kerry Hotel Pudong Shanghai, which launched the brand in February 2011.
New facilities and amenities at the hotel will include Club rooms and suites, a Club lounge, a reconfigured lobby and grand ballroom, and two new dining outlets: Kerry’s Kitchen and Kerry’s Pantry. In addition, the hotel’s Centro bar and lounge has been redesigned, and an outdoor bistro-style terrace added.
“Kerry Hotels are the next generation of luxury hotels; vibrant, unpretentious and flexible. We believe that today’s traveller wants to engage all senses whether at work or at play. Kerry Hotels have a fresh and energetic vibe and offer some unexpected touches that fuel creativity yet allow time to recharge and relax. Service is less bound by protocol but is enthusiastic and intuitive,” said Greg Dogan, President & Chief Executive Officer of Shangri-La International Hotel Management Limited.
“Kerry hotels represent passionate hospitality wrapped up in a stylish package and with its renovation, Kerry Hotel, Beijing perfectly embodies those criteria,”
