¡Mira! There is so much hotel news flying around this week, we just don't have enough time to focus on all the new hotels news. So here's a quick rundown to get you up to speed on the latest.
· KONNICHIWA ANDAZ TOKYO: The newest Andaz Hotel, Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills, is now officially open! Check out the room shot above. Swoon. Hopefully, we'll more from inside the property for you to see next week.
· HILTON HOTELS TAKING OVER MYANMAR: Only a few years after opening its country to tourism, Myanmar has been prepping for some major growth. And now it needs to brace itself for the onslaught of Hilton Hotels. The hotel chain has partnered up with the Eden Group Company to rebrand two of the Group's recently opened properties in the capital, Nay Pyi Taw, and on Ngapali beach in Rakhine State. Those hotels will now be known as Hilton Nay Pyi Taw and Hilton Ngapali Beach Resort. Hilton is also planning three more hotels in the next three years, namely: Hilton Bagan and Hilton Inle Lake in 2016 and the Hilton Mandalay which will open in 2017.
Is it something out of Total Recall? No, it’s the Langham Place, Pazhou
Langham must be feeling plush this week – they’ve just announced the opening of another hotel in China. This time the lucky recipient province is Guangzhou, and the Langham Place, Pazhou (which looks a bit like a space ship) will be the only hotel connected to the Guangzhou International Convention and Exhibition Center (it’ll be linked by an air conditioned – hallelujah - walkway).
So yeah, it’s not exactly a leisure destination, but it sounds good for business – they’re promising “exceptionally large meeting spaces” with the Great Room coming in at 3,000 sq m.
As for the rooms (of which there will be 488), they’re being designed by Yabu Pushelberg, whose work looks pretty funky from the looks of the website, so we’re thinking they’ll be good. Facilities-wise, there will be a restaurant spread over two floors, cigar room, traditional Chinese spa and a lounge bar that’s designed for both “work and play” (ooh err).
