Langham Hotel to open in Dalian, China 2015
Langham Hotels International has unveiled the luxurious Langham, Dalian which will become the 25th property in the rapidly expanding luxury hotel operator’s portfolio. Set to open in 2015, the stunning landmark hotel will form the lavish centerpiece of a 72-story mega tower in the exclusive heart of the city overlooking the Yellow Sea in North East China.
Owned by parent company Great Eagle Holdings with joint venture partner, The Blackstone Group, The Langham, Dalian will be part of a luxury multi-use complex that includes serviced apartments.
The 361-room Langham, Dalian located in the prestigious Dongang district will bring the traditional trappings of Europe’s original grand hotel to North East China.
Guests commence their journey into enchanting hospitality from the moment they enter the grand lobby atrium as they are checked-in at well-appointed individual reception and concierge areas.
The glamor of European hospitality will become apparent with an impressive array of dining experiences. In particular, Palm Court, the original home of the quintessential afternoon tea, and the international all-day dining restaurant on the ground lobby level will create two stylish focal points to meet.
With stunning 270 degree city and harbor views from the 39th floor, the T’ang Court, will offer the Michelin-quality cuisine of its award-winning sibling from Hong Kong as well as local specialities. With its intimate yet spacious à la carte dining area and 10 private rooms, the restaurant promises to be the choice for business celebrations or private ladies’ luncheons.
Meanwhile, the celebrated Langham Club lounge will feature a double-heighted ceiling that’s reminiscent of a Victorian library room. The Lounge can also be privately accessed from the executive clubroom floors offering complete privacy for the guest.
The Langham, Dalian is poised to become home to the city’s most refined events with its impressive Grand Ballroom at 1,000 sq m. Meeting and event planners will find each social event or business conference catered to with the Langham’s customary grace and elegance so even the simplest of events will become an occasion.
For the luxury leisure or business traveler, the facility includes a Chuan Spa based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine which has been developed into an internationally-recognized global brand, two pools and a state-of-the-art gym.
Brett Butcher, Chief Executive Officer of Langham Hotels International said, “The introduction and investment in bringing the prestigious Langham brand to Dalian, one of China’s most international yet elegant cities, signals our intent to penetrate China’s most important cities as we build our footprint in the fastest growing hospitality markets in the world.”
Dalian is often considered the ‘Hong Kong of Northern China’. It also has a reputation as ‘a city built in gardens’ due to its ‘Green Storm’ campaign in the 1990’s and its extensive preservation of its European architecture.
