The Park Hotel Group has expanded its fast-growing stable of properties in Asia with the acquisition of the Grand Castle Hotel, a 5-star hotel located in Xian, the ancient capital city of Shaanxi province in China. With the acquisition, the 338-room property will be rebranded as Grand Park Xian.

Renowned for its opulent palatial architecture, the recently renovated hotel mirrors the historic architecture of the adjacent Ancient City Wall. It is in close proximity to the citys many historic attractions and within walking distance of the Ancient City Wall and the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, both built during the Tang Dynasty. It is just a 35-kilometre drive away from Lintong District where one will find the famed Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, as well as the Mausoleum of Chinas First Emperor, Qin Shi Huang.

The 10-storey hotel is located in the heart of the citys business, shopping and entertainment districts, attracting both business and leisure travellers alike. Grand Park Xian boasts one of the tallest atrium lobbies in the city, and facilities in the newly renovated property include Yue Chinese Restaurant, The Veranda Caf Restaurant, Lobby Lounge, ballroom and six meeting rooms as well as a business centre.

The Grand Park Xian is the groups third hotel in China after Grand Park Kunming in Yunnan and Grand Park Wuxi in Jiangsu.

Park Hotel Group director Mr Allen Law said, Our latest acquisition in China is testimony to our drive to expand our network of strategically-located hotels and enhance our branding. We have plans to acquire more hotels in Chinas key cities in the next three to five years.

Besides its China properties, Park Hotel Group also owns and manages Park Hotel Hong Kong and three properties in Singapore including the new-build Park Hotel Clarke Quay due to open in March 2009.
