Steigenberger Hotels and Resorts has debuted in China with the opening of the Steigenberger Jinan Fengming.

The 258-room hotel is located in Jinan, the capital of Shandong Province in eastern China, and features a traditional Shandong and seafood restaurant, Bela Bela international buffet restaurant, a lobby lounge and a swimming pool.

According to the group the hotel’s location “near Jinan East Railway Station and Yaoqiang International Airport as well as the connection to Sunac Cultural and Tourism City make the new Steigenberger Hotel the ideal accommodation for business travellers”.

Earlier this year Steigenberger announced plans to open two properties in the Chinese city of Hangzhou in 2022.

Commenting on the Jinan opening Marcus Bernhardt, CEO of Deutsche Hospitality, the owner of the Steigenberger brand, said:

“Together with our shareholder Huazhu, we have set ourselves the goal of sustainably establishing the upscale segment of Deutsche Hospitality in Asia and combining the values of the Steigenberger brand – tradition, luxury and exclusivity – with Chinese hospitality to create an experience for guests from all over the world.

“The opening of the first Steigenberger Hotel in China in such challenging times underlines our successful cooperation with Huazhu and is an important step on our way to become one of the top three hotel companies in Europe by 2025. It makes me very proud that we are now also represented in China with our long-established Steigenberger brand.”
