Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 5 May 2009

Carlson Hotels has signed an agreement to open its first property in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet Autonomous Region, People’s Republic of China.

 Famed as the ‘City of Sunshine’, Lhasa will be home to the Park Plaza Lhasa City Center. The 87-room property, owned by Tibet Gakyiling Construction, will be located along one of Lhasa’s main streets in the newly developed city centre.

When the hotel opens in 2010, guests will have easy access to all parts of the city, including the Qinghai-Tibet Railway and the Lhasa Gonggar Airport, which offers flights to major cities in China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu, as well as an international connection to Kathmandu, Nepal.

“This hotel marks a significant milestone for the Park Plaza brand, which continues to establish itself in key destinations across Asia. This agreement is also part of our strategic plan to enter more regional markets over the next three years,” said Jean-Marc Busato, managing director – Asia Pacific, Carlson Hotels Worldwide.

Designed by the Nepal DISGN CELL Designer Company, the Park Plaza Lhasa City Center will be an ancient-Tibet-style building. At an altitude of 3,650 metres, the hotel’s facilities include a business centre, and meeting and banquet rooms.

Carlson currently has nine hotels in operation in China. This includes The Regent Beijing, the luxury flagship property for the group in China, and the 270-room Radisson Plaza Hotel Tianjin which soft-opened last month. There are another nine hotels under development in China.

 Globally, Carlson Hotels has more than 1,000 properties in 74 countries.
