Radisson Hotel Group introduces its Radisson Blu® and Radisson® brands to central China, with the signing of two new hotels, Radisson Blu Wuhan ETD Zone and Radisson Wuhan Optics Valley in the city’s high-tech business and development zones. These two hotel properties will provide high-quality accommodation and world-class facilities for the rising number of domestic and international visitors attracted to Wuhan’s economic zones.
The capital of Hubei province, Wuhan is a bustling metropolis that is home to approximately 10 million people. Nicknamed the “Detroit of the East,” this city has one of China’s largest automotive industries and a thriving manufacturing sector, which has attracted many major Chinese and international companies.
“Wuhan is a leading industrial hub in China and developments like ETD Zone and Optics Valley demonstrate how the country is progressing globally in terms of high-tech industry, manufacturing and scientific research,” said Katerina Giannouka, President, Asia Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group. “With their international accommodation and world-class facilities, including flexible MICE venues, Radisson Blu Wuhan ETD Zone and Radisson Wuhan Optics Valley will be perfectly suited to this emerging global city.”
Radisson Blu Wuhan ETD Zone is an impressive new lakeside property located in Wuhan’s Economic & Technological Development Zone. Developed by Wuhan Liantou Peninsula Real Estate Co., Ltd, this 355-room upper-upscale hotel will open its doors in the first quarter of 2020. The hotel will rise eight stories from the banks of Hou Guan Lake. Designed in a contemporary style, this property will provide a full range of facilities, including international, Chinese and Italian restaurants, an indoor swimming pool, spa, fitness center and children’s playground, plus nine meeting rooms and a 1,600 square meter grand ballroom.
Scheduled to open in June 2024, Radisson Wuhan Optics Valley is set to launch in Donghu New Tech Development Zone, an important medical research and science park also known as “Optics Valley”. Developed by Wuhan Donglian Real Estate Co., Ltd, the property will feature 220 contemporary rooms and suites, and an array of upscale facilities, including an all-day dining restaurant, a specialty Chinese restaurant, lobby lounge and fitness center. Catering to the needs of corporate guests, the hotel will provide a business center, function rooms and a ballroom.
Both new hotels are easily accessible, with Radisson Blu Wuhan ETD Zone only 45 minutes’ drive from Wuhan Tianhe International Airport, and Radisson Wuhan Optics Valley just over an hour’s drive via major highways. Central China’s largest air gateway, Tianhe offers worldwide connections to cities including London, Paris, Tokyo, Sydney and San Francisco.
Radisson Hotel Group has firm plans to expand in Asia Pacific, with 77 Radisson Blu hotels and 58 Radisson hotels in operation and under development.
