GUANGZHOU, China & MCLEAN, VA – Hilton Worldwide today announced the opening of Hampton by Hilton Guangzhou Zhujiang New Town, its newest Hampton by Hilton hotel and flagship property for the brand in China. The 223-room hotel joins the Hampton portfolio of more than 2,100 hotels around the world. Hampton by Hilton Guangzhou Zhujiang New Town is located in the Tianhe District, Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, China and is managed by Huanpeng Hotel Management (Guangzhou) Limited.
“China is the 20th country that Hampton has entered, and for the city of Guangzhou, it is not only a strategic city and the ‘south gate’ of China, but is also the center of politics, economy, science, education and culture of Guangdong Province and the Pearl River Delta. We are especially happy that Hampton by Hilton’s flagship hotel has opened in Guangzhou and are confident that the hotel will contribute positively to the development of Guangzhou’s tourism industry,” said Phil Cordell, global head, Focused Service and Hampton Brand Management, Hilton Worldwide. “It represents a breakthrough for Hampton’s development in the China market. With a strong partner like Plateno Group, I have every confidence that the brand will achieve a similar success as in the United States.”
Hampton by Hilton Guangzhou Zhujiang New Town is conveniently located at the intersection of bustling Zhujiang New Town central business district and the popular Tianhe Sports Center business zone. Close to the Guangzhou business and financial hubs such as the Guangzhou International Finance Center, Citic Plaza, Pazhou Complex and the Guangzhou East Railway Station, the hotel offers easy access to the city’s most popular leisure, shopping and entertainment venues. Fully taking into consideration the demands of business travelers and families with kids, the hotel focuses on creating an easy, enjoyable, and relaxing atmosphere that leaves guests feeling like they are staying with a friend.
“Plateno Group’s collaboration with Hilton Worldwide is in line with our business strategy and is aligned with our values of focusing on our customers’ needs,” said Alex Zheng, chief brand architect, Founder and Chairman President of Plateno Group. “In 2015, Hampton by Hilton was warmly welcomed by investors and travelers. With the opening of Hampton by Hilton Guangzhou Zhujiang New Town, we have opened a new chapter and more than 10 Hampton hotels are scheduled to open this year alone,” he added.
At the hotel’s grand opening a special guest was introduced to mark the occasion—Hampton’s Mascot in China, “Little Hampton”. Little Hampton was designed based on China’s cute and friendly “National Treasure”, the panda – symbolizing the brand’s core values—“Friendly, Authentic, Caring, Thoughtful”.
