Part of a new mixed-use development, the hotel will offer approximately 480 guest-rooms, including 41 suites and 47 residences. All guest-rooms will be located from the 29th to 59th floors, boasting stunning views of the Shanghai skyline. There will also be several three-bedroom luxury St. Regis apartments on the top floors of the building.
Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. today announced the signing of an agreement with Shanghai Huayu Real Estate Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of B.M. Holding (Group) Co., Ltd., to bring its ultra-luxury St. Regis brand to Shanghai. Scheduled for completion in early 2017, The St. Regis Shanghai Jingan will open its doors in one of the most exclusive, sought-after locations in the heart of the city’s central business district. The new hotel will join the brand’s fast growing presence in Greater China, where St. Regis currently operates six properties and has an additional ten in the pipeline—including The St. Regis Macao, which is set to open this December.
“St. Regis remains laser-focused on growth in destinations where affluent travelers from around the globe are seeking unparalleled guest experiences, and we are thrilled to expand our Chinese portfolio with a flagship hotel in Shanghai – one of the most vibrant cities in the world,” said Jim Petrus, Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. “The St. Regis Shanghai Jingan will set a new standard for luxury hospitality in Shanghai, with our tech-forward and multi-lingual St. Regis butlers providing discerning guests with memorable and personalized service experiences.”
“This signing is testament to Starwood’s vigorous strategic planning and our commitment to fulfill the demand for luxury accommodation in this dynamic city,” Said Nong Xia, Senior Vice President, Head of Acquisitions & Development, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Greater China. “When The St. Regis Shanghai Jingan and W Shanghai- The Bund open in 2017, they’ll join The Luxury Collection® properties Twelve at Hengshan and The Hongta Hotel, making Shanghai home to three of Starwood’s most prestigious brands.”
