Starwood Hotels and Resorts has opened its first Four Points by Sheraton hotel in Shanghai.
The Four Points by Sheraton Shanghai, Pudong, rebranded from Grand You You Hotel, is the second Four Points by Sheraton hotel to open in mainland China.
Developed and further refurbished by Shanghai You You International Plaza, Four Points by Sheraton Shanghai, Pudong is part of a new multi-use complex called You You International Plaza Complex. The complex also includes the second Sheraton Hotel in Shanghai: the Sheraton Shanghai Hotel and Residences Pudong, which is expected to be ready in 2008.
Once completed, the complex will consist of four buildings: the Four Points by Sheraton Shanghai, Pudong; the Sheraton Hotel; the Sheraton Residences; an office tower and a retail complex.
Thomas Mueller, General Manager of Four Points by Sheraton Shanghai, Pudong, said "For the self sufficient traveler, Four Points by Sheraton is all about providing a high level of comfort, little indulgences and celebrating 'simple pleasures' while away from home from a great bed to a perfect cup of coffee to free high speed Internet access and free bottled water."
Located in Lujiazui finance and trade district, overlooking the Huangpu River, Four Points by Sheraton Shanghai, Pudong features 336 newly-refurbished rooms, including 39 suites.
Complete with 10,400 square feet of meeting and function space, the hotel offers a total of eight function rooms catering to all manner of set ups ranging from a small-scale board meeting to a gala dinner.
