Marriott doubles Chinese Sheraton properties incorporating brand’s design transformation

3 January, 2023

The transformation of the Sheraton Hotels & Resorts brand continues to build momentum across the globe, with more than 30 properties displaying the brand's design transformation by the end of 2022.

Greater China now features eight properties with the modernised design concept with Sheraton Xi'an South, Sheraton Ningbo Xiangshan Resort, Sheraton Nanjing Kingsley Hotel & Towers and the soon to open Sheraton Xi'an Chanba joining Sheraton Guangzhou Hotel, Sheraton Mianyang, Sheraton Zhaoqing Dinghu, and Sheraton Chengdu Pidu as transformed Sheraton-branded properties in Greater China.

Sheraton plans to continue its transformation journey in the region with the brand expecting additional hotels to showcase the new modernised look next year with the openings of Sheraton Beihai Resort and Sheraton Lanzhou Anning.

The new approach draws on the brand's roots as a community hub with places to connect and be productive. The design balances timelessness with a fresh and modern feel, creating an environment where guests feel comfortable and at ease whether working, meeting, or relaxing.

Built with its global, productivity-focused guest in mind, Sheraton's new elevated food and beverage philosophy and seamless technology integration are additional focal points of the brand's transformation.

Sheraton Xi'an Chanba offers residential-style guest rooms and suites

With proximity to many places of interest in Xi'an, Sheraton Xi'an Chanba offers 228 residential-style guest rooms and suites with serene, bright spaces and captivating views over the city. The soon-to-open new hotel takes its design cues from the city's history and culture, especially that of the Tang Dynasty.

The lobby art installation made of metal, ceramics, and resin glass were inspired by lamps lit in celebration of the local Lantern Festival. A host of public spaces and amenities have been created, including the brand's signature Community Table.

Sheraton Xi'an South offers proximity to many Fortune 500 enterprises

The Sheraton Xi'an South is located at the heart of Xi'an Software New City in Xi'an Hi-tech Industries Development Zone and offers proximity to many Fortune 500 enterprises.

The hotel offers 321 modern guest rooms and suites that feature bright, well-lit spaces with warm, residential appeal comprised of soft finishes and light wood tones accentuated with black metal accents.

With Xi'an Talent Park nearby, guests staying on the north side of the hotel enjoy garden views from their room. All guest rooms are equipped with new and modern amenities that foster productivity, including height-adjustable working table, integrated power and charging, and layered lighting.

Sheraton Ningbo Xiangshan Resort first reimagined resort in Asia Pacific

Sitting on a 575-mile coastline in Xiangshan, Sheraton Ningbo Xiangshan Resort lays claim to some of the area's most beautiful settings. The property is the first resort in the Asia Pacific region to bring Sheraton's design transformation to life.

The interior design incorporates elements that denote the distinctive rock formations in the area and the local fishing heritage. In the lobby, the design pays homage to Xiangshan's culture by utilising black and white colours to form a dramatic visual contrast, showcasing the aesthetics of fishing nets and wood carvings that are unique to the area.

The resort offers 270 modern guest rooms and suites, most of which boast views of the sea or mountains through large floor-to-ceiling windows, with selected guest rooms featuring a large outdoor balcony.

Sheraton Nanjing Kingsley Hotel & Towers in city 's financial and commercial centre

Sheraton Nanjing Kingsley Hotel & Towers commands a prime location in Nanjing's financial and commercial centre - the Xinjiekou business zone. The renovation was well-thought to combine the hotel's over 20 years of history into a design that matches the lifestyle of today's travellers, with elements that reinterpret local cultures and arts, such as the staircase handrails and screens that create a modern rendition of the local Jinling Folding Fans.

Equipped with the brand's signature Community Table and tech-enabled Studios, the expansive lobby has been repositioned as an open, shared space, aiming to promote social interaction and collaboration.

The property features 70 newly renovated guest rooms and suites as part of the first phase of guest rooms refresh.
