Hilton to open new Lanzhou property in 2017

22 Nov 2013 by Clement Huang

Hilton Worldwide has signed a management agreement with Lanzhou Friendship Hotel to build a property in the capital of the Gansu province, thereby providing the hospitality group with a platform to expand its presence in the rapidly developing northwest China. .

Scheduled to open in 2017, Hilton Lanzhou will be situated in the city’s central commercial district on East Xijin Road in Qilihe District. The street is located near the Yellow River, which flows through eight other provinces, and ranks as the second longest river in Asia. 

The new property will be the first international hotel brand in Lanzhou and is situated a mere 2km from the railway station, enabling easier connections to the airport which is roughly 50km away. In addition, the hotel will be located near several landmarks including the Gansu Provincial Museum and the Lanzhou Xiaoxihu Park.

Hilton Lanzhou will feature 389 guestrooms housed within a 32-storey building. Guests living on the top floors will enjoy an unobstructed panoramic view of the Yellow River and surrounding landscape.

The hotel will also include three restaurants, a lobby lounge and bar, three function rooms, 16 meeting rooms, a ballroom, and a health club with a spa and indoor swimming pool.

Hilton Worldwide currently operates 36 hotels in Greater China. It recently celebrated the opening of its 4,000th hotel, the Hilton Shijiazhuang in the Hebei province of China (see here).
