THE COURTYARD by Marriott Beijing has been relaunched as the pentahotel Beijing, making it the second China property of the select service brand. There is only one other pentahotel in Asia, located in Shanghai.
The 299-room hotel is located in the downtown Chongwenmen District and is close to popular tourist attractions.
By the third quarter, the hotel’s public spaces and guestrooms will be redesigned, and a new service culture will be introduced to reflect the pentahotels’ concept of a neighbourhood lifestyle hotel.
Launched in Europe, the brand’s properties in Asia are managed by Hong Kong-based New World Hospitality. Further expansion is on the cards, with a target of 30 pentahotels in Asia by 2015.
