Accor has opened its twentieth Sofitel Hotel in China.

The 417-room Sofitel Wanda Beijing heralds a new era for the Sofitel brand in China, Accor Asia Pacific chairman David Baffsky says.

“The Sofitel is set to become one of the hotel landmarks of Beijing and it will be a flagship for Sofitel in China,” he says.

“The opening will play a significant part in the evolution of the Sofitel brand, which is in the process of a significant upgrading programme that will see Sofitel positioned as one of the world’s leading luxury hotel brands.”

Rooms in the hotel feature the latest window technology – electrochromic windows between the bedroom and bathroom – which can change from clear to frosted at the flick of a switch.
