Marriott International plans to open its third stylish Renaissance-branded hotel and first upscale Marriott Executive Apartments property for extended stay travelers in Tianjin, China later this year, under a management agreement with Tianjin Tianbin Real Estate Development
The two hotels are the 368-room Renaissance Tianjin Lakeview Hotel and the 96-unit The Lakeview, Tianjin - Marriott Executive Apartments. They will share the same lakefront building in Tianjin’s Hexi District. A lively night life scene, high-end shopping and the offices of major financial institutions are located nearby.
“We’re excited to see our presence in Tianjin continue to expand with these two distinctive properties,” said Ed Fuller, president & managing director of international lodging for Marriott. “Tianjin has evolved into an important high-tech and financial center in China and is home to a significant ex-pat community who will appreciate the availability of our first Marriott Executive Apartments in the city.”
Guest rooms at the distinctive Renaissance Tianjin Lakeview will be more spacious than those offered by its competitors with baths featuring separate showers and tubs and plush bath amenities. They will be contemporary in style and will offer modern amenities and features.
Three restaurants and a contemporary lobby lounge serving authentically prepared culinary specialties and beverages will form the foundation of the hotel’s dining and entertainment offerings. Recreational amenities will include an indoor swimming pool and a health club.
Business travel services will include a fully-equipped business center with two small meeting rooms and a comfortable executive lounge that will also have a private meeting room.
For social events and conferences, the hotel will have 2,750 square meters of function space including a 1,500-square meter ballroom that will be divisible into three sections, a 400-square meter junior ballroom capable of being divided in two, and three additional meetings rooms in varying configurations, all of which will be divisible into two sections each.
The Lakeview, Tianjin - Marriott Executive Apartments will offer a range of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, all of which will be stylishly furnished and include a fully-equipped kitchen; in-unit laundry and safe; flat screen, high definition television; and high-speed internet access.
While residents will be able to use the recreational and dining options at the Renaissance hotel, they will have a dedicated restaurant and lounge of their own for breakfast as well as an on-premise sundry/ delicatessen. Other amenities will include, a multi-purpose game room, a children’s playroom, room service and on-property resident storage room.
The Marriott International portfolio in Tianjin currently consists of the 280-room Renaissance Tianjin and the 284-room Renaissance Tianjin TEDA. The 400-room Tianjin Marriott is planned to open in 2013.
