INNSIDE by Meliá, the upscale urban lifestyle brand of Meliá Hotels International announced today the opening of INNSIDE by Meliá Zhengzhou, a brand new hotel located in the Zhengdong New District of Zhengzhou, China. The property marks the official launch of the INNSIDE by Meliá brand in China, a milestone for the group, which recently celebrated 60 years in the hotel industry.
The new four-star hotel is the fourth Meliá Hotels International property to open in China, following the success of Gran Meliá Xian, Meliá Jinan and Meliá Shanghai Hongqiao. The newly built property, located a three-minute walk from the Zhengzhou East Railway Station, blends seamlessly into the urban landscape. Keeping in step with the modern aesthetic of the upscale INNSIDE by Meliá brand, all 335 rooms are bathed in light by floor-to-ceiling windows and designed in a monochromatic palette.
"Opening INNSIDE by Meliá Zhengzhou puts us in the very heart of a dynamic city and extends the momentum of Meliá Hotels International in China," said Bernardo Cabot Estarellas, Senior Vice President of Meliá Hotels International Asia Pacific. "We're very proud because INNSIDE by Meliá Zhengzhou is the fruition of a longstanding partnership with Greenland, who have been instrumental to Meliá's success and growth in China."
Designed to meet the demands of modern day business travelers, Mr. Cabot added, "Our vision is an exciting one: To create a more authentic experience for today's bleisure travelers, or Work Trippers. For them, they've broken away from the strictly utilitarian business travel of old, transitioning between business and leisure seamlessly; we're confident the INNSIDE by Meliá brand in China will enrich the experience for next-gen business travelers."
An open-plan lobby design is complemented by Syndeo, the hotel's all-day dining restaurant. Meaning "connect" in Greek, Syndeo is ideal for work and relaxation, offering a wide variety of local specialties and exquisite international dishes. After work, Syndeo is transformed into a bar, where guests can savor signature cocktails while enjoying magnificent city views.
Guests will enjoy the standard offerings of complimentary Wi-Fi and a 24-hour fitness center, underscored by Meliá's culture of passion for service. The city of Zhengzhou is fast becoming a key business hub in China. INNSIDE by Meliá Zhengzhou's central location makes this the perfect locale for business and leisure travelers to the city, and promises to be an urban escape for savvy Work Trippers looking for unique and memorable experiences.
Meliá Hotels International will maintain its robust momentum in Asia Pacific, launching six hotels per year in the region. There are 18 hotels currently in operation and the group is expected to have over 40 hotels by 2022.
