Upcoming Pan Pacific Hotel and Serviced Suites Tianjin to herald new luxury trend in the Chinese harbour city

Set to launch in Tianjin, China next month, the 319-unit property will deliver the distinctive refreshing Pacific experience through premium accommodation, guest facilities and service.

Tianjin, China, 10 September 2014 – The five-star Pan Pacific Hotel and Serviced Suites Tianjin is poised to open in the bustling harbour city of Tianjin in China next month. Managed by Singapore-based hotel company Pan Pacific Hotels Group, this will be the fifth “Pan Pacific” hotel in China, following properties in Suzhou, Ningbo and Xiamen.

One of four centrally-administered cities in China, Tianjin enjoys a 30-minute connection to Beijing via high-speed train and serves as the railway hub for travels from the capital to Northeast and East China. As the largest coastal city in Northern China, Tianjin is also a strategic world-class port-of-call for international cargo ships and cruise liners visiting the wider area, including Beijing. 

Due to its strong heritage as a port city, Tianjin has become an important economic centre in the country and is now home to some 300 Fortune 500 companies. The development of the Bohai Economic Rim and the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei integration initiative will further underscore Tianjin’s position as a key engine of economic progress, especially for the Northern China region, thereby attracting more businesses to the city.

Marking the extension of the “Pan Pacific” brand presence along the Pacific Rim, the new Pan Pacific Hotel and Serviced Suites Tianjin promises a refreshing Pacific experience delivered through elegant facilities of the highest quality, and discreet, personalised service. It will respond to the growing demand for quality accommodation in the city in light of Tianjin’s booming economic prospects, and seeks to become the leading hotel of choice for business and leisure travellers. 

Situated on the bank of the iconic Haihe River and at the intersection of Tianjin’s three vital commercial districts of Hongqiao, Hebei and Nankai, the luxury hotel-and-serviced suites property is well-connected to Tianjin’s main arrival ports – via a 40-minute drive from Tianjin Binhai International Airport and 10-min drive from Tianjin Railway Station.  It is also close to key tourist attractions such as Tianjin Ancient Culture Street, Temple of the Queen of Heaven, Tianjin Eye and Tianjin Zhongshan Park.

Named “2014 Most Anticipated New Hotel Opening” (最值得期待新开业酒店奖) at the sixth annual Gold Champion Awards (金樽奖) hosted by China Hotels Magazine, the 319-unit Pan Pacific Hotel and Serviced Suites Tianjin will feature 289 beautifully furnished guestrooms and 30 well-equipped serviced suites that caters to the needs of both short-term and extended-stay travellers. 

Capitalising on Tianjin’s attraction as a business destination, Pan Pacific Hotel and Serviced Suites Tianjin will provide comprehensive business and meetings solutions comprising a Business Centre, Pacific Club with a private meeting room, 10 versatile event spaces and complimentary Wi-Fi access in all guestrooms. The property is also an ideal wedding venue with its advanced audio-visual and technological equipment as well as customised bridal services. 

Meanwhile, the variety of dining choices at Pan Pacific Hotel and Serviced Suites Tianjin is set to draw in-house guests and walk-in diners alike. It includes Pacifica, an all-day dining restaurant featuring the most authentic Asian and creative Pacific-influenced cuisine; a noodle bar; Hai Tien Lo Chinese restaurant serving up Cantonese classics and the best of local specialties; as well as a casual, elegant lobby lounge that offers drinks and light snacks.

Last but not least, guests can also enjoy extensive recreational facilities such as the exclusive Pacific Club Lounge for Club floor guests, an indoor temperature-controlled swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness centre, spa and complimentary bicycle rental.
