TOKYO, Japan - JAL Hotels Co., Ltd. announced plans today to open a new Nikko Hotels International five-star hotel, to be built in Guangzhou, in Guangdong Province, China. Guangzhou is China's third-largest city and its southern manufacturing hub.

Hotel Nikko Guangzhou will be located in Guangzhou Tianhe Software Park, one of China's biggest, most important software manufacturing bases, in the city's Guangzhou Tianhe District. It is expected to open in March, 2010. The 13-story, 603,000 square-foot building will have 411 guest rooms. Facilities will include Japanese and Chinese eateries, banquet rooms, business center and fitness club. The hotel will cater to both business and leisure clientele.

Guangzhou's attractions lure international business and tourism visitors alike. Business travelers venture there every April and October from all over the world for the Guangzhou Fair, China's biggest export fair. In addition, tourists flock to Guangzhou's historical sites, such as Temple of the Six Banyan Trees, a fifth-century pagoda; Shamian Island on the Pearl River, with splendid European architecture, once home to foreign merchants; and the second-century B.C. tomb of the Han Dynasty Nanyue King, discovered and excavated in the 1980s.

"With so many major international companies now operating in Guangzhou, the city is booming," said Katsumi Chiyo, president and CEO, JAL Hotels Co., Ltd. "Hotel Nikko Guangzhou will help meet some of the big demand for luxury accommodations. We're very pleased we'll be adding yet another five-star property to our portfolio of hotels in China. This will become our eighth hotel in China."
