I am delighted to have the opportunity to debut the first St. Regis in Southwest China, said Mr. Deutl. We are honored to open The St. Regis Chengdu as legacy of our legendary founder, Mr. J.J. Astor IV here in Chengdu; I trust he would be proud to see this hotel in this wonderful and energetic metropolis. Carrying forward his vision, we are preparing our team to deliver the highest level of personalized service with a goal of exceeding the expectations of our guests.
