24 Jun 2010

The management of Hilton Chongqing has denied any links with the nightclub currently being investigated by police for prostitution that led to its being shut down last weekend. See news.

Hotel spokesperson Doris Tan was quoted by the South China Morning Post yesterday as saying they were “totally in the dark about the 22 suspects arrested in relation to the nightclub”. She stresssed that the KTV outlet closed down by the law enforcers was “totally independent from the hotel”.

Hilton Worldwide also issued a statement to Business Traveller saying it abided “by all laws in every country in which its brands operate and is fully cooperating with the investigation”.

Hilton also said that while the KTV was located in the same building complex as their hotel, it was “an independently owned and operated business”.

Hilton Chongqing is expected to reopen on July 5.
