Hilton Worldwide has expanded its portfolio in China with the opening of its first hotel in the historic city of Suzhou.
The new DoubleTree by Hilton Suzhou is an eye-catching contemporary hotel located in the centre of the eastern city, close to the China-Singapore Suzhou Industrial Park where more than 200 companies have their regional headquarters.
Designed by architect Hiroshi Miyakawa, who also was also responsible for Osaka’s Kansai International Airport, the new DoubleTree offers 357 rooms and 181 one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, which come equipped with kitchens and separate living areas.
Facilities at the property include three restaurants, a bar, spa, indoor pool, 24-hour fitness and business centres, and extensive meeting space including a 1,000m² ballroom.
“The opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Suzhou is a great addition that reinforces Hilton Worldwide’s presence in the strategically important economic hub of eastern China,” said Bruce McKenzie, Hilton’s senior vice president of operations for Greater China & Mongolia. “It strengthens our operating portfolio in the country, which now includes 71 hotels, and continues to grow thanks to a robust pipeline of over 200 hotels.”
DoubleTree by Hilton Suzhou is located 2.5km from Suzhou Park Railway Station, which provides connections to Shanghai’s Hongqiao International Airport.
