Fairmont is to expand its portfolio of hotels in China with a new property in Hangzhou, the capital city of Zhejiang province in the heart of Yangtze River Delta region, Eastern China.

Expected to open in 2017, Fairmont Hangzhou will feature 300 rooms, five dining outlets, an health club and swimming pool, a Willow Steam Spa, and more than 32,000 square feet (3,000 square meters) of meeting and banquet space.

The project will also include 180 Fairmont Serviced Residences, providing access to private concierge services and other exclusive amenities.

Fairmont Hangzhou will be located atop the city's tallest building, enjoying an enviable spot in the heart of Qianjiang Century CBD, an upcoming business center that will house large scale meeting and convention venues, Grade A office towers, high-end residences and commercial and retail spaces.

"We continue to expand our footprint in China and are excited to be adding a hotel in a major domestic market like Hangzhou," said Jennifer Fox, president, FRHI International and Fairmont Brand. "It's a city that is renowned for its culture, history and beauty, as well as a destination that attracts both domestic and international travelers. Furthermore, with rail and airport expansion projects underway, and visitor numbers expected to rise, it's an opportune time to be entering the market."

Often referred to as one of China's most beautiful cities, Hangzhou is home to the celebrated West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which features various temples, pagodas and gardens. The freshwater lake has served as influence to poets and painters over the ages and is also believed to have been an important source of inspiration for garden designers throughout China and Asia. Other well known historical and cultural sites include Solitary Hill, the Tomb of General Yue Fei, the Six Harmonies Pagoda and the Ling Yin Temple. The area is also home to the world's largest tidal bore, which rushes up the Qiantang River.

Fairmont Hangzhou joins the luxury brand's growing collection of hotels in China including Fairmont Peace Hotel, Shanghai; Fairmont Beijing; Fairmont Yangcheng Lake; Fairmont Nanjing (2013); Fairmont Chengdu and Residences, China (2014); and Fairmont Taiyuan (2016).
