Worldhotels has launched its new branded hotel concept in Asia with the signing of the Worldhotel Grand Juna Wuxi in China.

The agreement with Juna Hotels Group, one of the most prominent hospitality companies in the Yangtze River Delta (southern Jiangsu Province, Shanghai Municipality and northern Zhejiang Province), marks the debut of the Worldhotel brand in Asia.

Worldhotel Grand Juna Wuxi is a new 370-room property incorporating a state-of-the-art convention and exhibition centre in the heart of Taihu Lake New City, just a stroll from the city hall and financial centre of Wuxis new city centre.

The hotel houses five restaurants and lounges offering Huaiyang cuisine, Shanghai cuisine, Cantonese cuisine and international fare.

The hotel is conveniently located in terms of traffic, only 20 minutes drive from downtown Wuxi; 15 minutes drive from Wuxi New District high-speed train station; 20 minutes drive from Wuxi International and domestic Airport and 90 minutes drive from Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

Nicknamed "little Shanghai", the ancient city along the Yangtze River is divided by Taihu Lake in Jiangsu province, bordering Changzhou to the west and Suzhou to the east. Wuxi is also renowned as the Pearl of Taihu Lake for its beautiful scenery and booming economy in the Shanghai hinterland.

 The branded hotel solution was developed in response to demand from hoteliers for support and services from a global name with significant recognition while still allowing them to keep their own unique character. Following the launch of the first ever branded Worldhotel early this year, this milestone launch of Worldhotel Grand Juna Wuxi launches a promising expansion of the Worldhotel brand in China, as well as Asia, said Robert Hornman, Managing Director of Worldhotels.
