Swisstel has signed a new hotel in Jinan, the capital of Shandong Province in eastern China.

Scheduled to open in 2020, Swisstel Jinan will feature 248 guestrooms, five distinctive dining outlets and approximately 2,900 square metres (31,000 square feet) of event and banquet space.

The hotel will also provide business and leisure travellers with access to a Provel Spa & Sport - the company's Alpine-inspired signature wellbeing brand.

Part of a larger mixed-use development featuring residential, retail and office buildings, the hotel will be located in the Han Yu District, the new financial centre and research and development hub of Jinan.

The Han Yu District covers an area of 13.3km2, and houses a significant amount of office towers, residential buildings and commercial facilities. Transportation to the area is supported by nearby metro lines and the Jinan International Airport, as well as an extensive high speed railway system that offers convenient access to both Beijing and Shanghai.

This project is exciting on a number of fronts, said Foued El Mabrouk, vice president, operations, China, FRHI Hotels & Resorts. It not only supports our growth plan of strategic expansion into key Chinese markets, but it also marks another excellent development opportunity with an experienced and committed partner in Golden Land development; a group we recently teamed with to develop and open a remarkable Fairmont hotel in Nanjing. Swisstel Jinan, with its contemporary feel, innovative design, inspired service and quality in life guest programs, promises to be a magnificent hotel in the City of Springs.

Jinan is located in Shandong Province, and is a major national administrative, economic, and transportation hub for eastern China. The city bridges two of Chinas great economic axes, the Yangtze River Delta and the Bohai Economic Rim, and is in close proximity to Tianjin and Qingdao ports. Jinan is referred to as the City of Springs for its well-known 72 artesian springs, with one of the most scenic being Daming Lake, which features many towers, halls, pavilions, and corridors along its lakeside. The city is also a key centre for technology and innovation and is home to more than 40 universities, over 200 research institutes and 10 national laboratories.
