Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, a luxury brand of FRHI Hotels & Resorts (FRHI), has inked a development agreement with Henan Donggang Real Estate, to open the Fairmont Zhengzhou in the capital of Henan Province in central China.
The 350-room hotel will be part of a new mixed-use development in the CBD of Zhengdong New Town, an upcoming financial and business hub in Zhengzhou, and is slated to open in 2018.
Located in close proximity to the international airport, the hotel will feature four distinct dining outlets, along with approximately 4,000ft² of meeting and banquet space.
Other recreational facilities will include a Willow Stream Spa and a swimming pool.
FRHI International and Fairmont brand president Jennifer Fox said: "Our expansion into Zhengzhou is significant in that it debuts our presence in a major hub of central China.
"It marks another important milestone in our development strategy for China, and signals continued strong growth for us in this very important market."
Fairmont Zhengzhou will join the growing portfolio of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts in China, including Fairmont Beijing, Fairmont Peace Hotel in Shanghai, Kunshan’s Fairmont Yangcheng Lake and Fairmont Nanjing.
In the coming years, Fairmont Hotels plans to open outlets in Chengdu (2015), Changsha (2017), Hangzhou (2018), Suzhou (2018), Taiyuan (2019) and Nanning (2019).
