ACCORHOTELS debuted its Novotel brand in Xi’an’s CBD last month with an aim to lure small corporate meetings, incentive groups and product launches.
The 275-room Novotel Xian SCPG Hotel is a 15-minute drive to the China Railway High-speed station and 30 minutes to Xi’an Xianyang International Airport. Function rooms range from 60m2 to 130m2 in size and are able to fit between 50 and 110 pax theatre-style.
According to Accor spokesman Kelly Chen, the hotel has secured pharmaceutical, automobile and cosmetics industry meetings for between 20 to 80 participants since its opening on July 28.
The hotel features a “crab” set-up, ideal for meetings with audiovisual presentations as it allows the speaker to move among the participants and make visual contact with them.
Other facilities include three F&B outlets, a fitness centre and computers with Internet connection.
Novotel Xian SCPG Hotel sits alongside Accor’s four existing properties in the area, namely Sofitel Xian on Remin Square, Grand Mercure Xian Renmin Square, Sofitel Legend Peoples Grand Hotel Xian and Mercure on Remin Square Xian.
