The InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG) selected New York for its first EVEN Hotel
The spa at the Banyan Tree Hotel features as the most popular hotel spa on the web in China, followed by the spa at the Shangri-la and the Intercontinental spa, according to a survey carried out between January and March this year.
Singaporean firm WOHA has completed the massive 100,548 square meter ‘intercontinental sanya resort’ on hainan island off the southern coast of China.
A few years ago, British engineering firm Atkins won the rights to design an extravagant hotel deep within a 100-metre pit in Shanghai‘s Songjiang District.
Construction on the Intercontinental Shimao Shanghai Wonderland finally commenced last month, and the hotel is scheduled to open in early 2015.
InterContinental Hotels (IHG), the world’s largest hotel chain, has announced the launch of a long-awaited new brand for the Chinese market.
The new chain will be called Hualuxe Hotels and Resorts and is expected to divide its efforts between operating in cities and popular resorts within China — although IHG said that the brand will open in other major cities outside of the country.
While Hualuxe is expected to share many of the characteristics of IHG-owned brands such as Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn, several modifications have been made to cater for Chinese travelers, of which there are expected to be 3.3 billion by 2015.
