Meliá to Open Business-Focused Hotel in Shanghai

Meliá Hotels International is boosting its presence in China with the announcement of a new hotel in Shanghai. With the signing of Meliá Shanghai Hongqiao, Meliá Hotels International will have eight properties in China. 

The new Meliá Shanghai Hongqiao is part of the Lidoway project, developed by Golden United Group, which will become a major urban complex in Hongqiao with commercial and entertainment facilities, dining outlets, alfresco areas and high-end residential villas. 

Meliá Shanghai Hongqiao, scheduled to open in July 2016, will have 190 rooms, meeting rooms, two food and beverage outlets and an executive lounge. 

Hongqiao is expected to become the new center of west Shanghai and the business hub for the Yangze River Delta region, with the area's integration with the Hongqiao Transportation Hub (Airport & Railway). The hotel will be located in close proximity to the new National Convention and Exhibition Center (formerly the China Expo Exhibition Center), one of the world's largest exhibition complexes with a total floor space of 15.8 million feet and the capacity to accommodate up to 300,000 people per day. 

As a key destination, the Hongqiao Airport handled 37,960,200 passengers in 2014 and grew by 21.3 percent in 2010, making it the fourth busiest airport in mainland China and the 21st busiest in the world. Hongqiao Railway station is also the largest railway station in Asia, with a total area of 13.9 million square feet.
