Press Release Date: 04 Aug, 2010

Business travellers can enjoy some good fortune at Guoman’s new luxury five-star property in Shanghai thanks to a special introductory ‘888’ midweek offer.

Guoman Shanghai opened this month and is offering its spectacularly designed junior suites, mid-week for RMB 888 per room per night (the equivalent of £87) - including Complimentary Executive Club access.

Guoman Shanghai developed the offer for its business travellers as ‘888’ in Chinese culture is considered to be extremely lucky, as the word ‘eight’ sounds like the words ‘prosper’ or ‘wealth’ in Cantonese.

The architecturally stunning 442-room Guoman Shanghai is the first international property for the Guoman brand, transferring the group’s ethos of inspirational design and stimulating guest experiences to the flourishing Asian market.
The hotel is also offering up to ten meeting delegates’ free places when booking a meeting of minimum 50 delegates. Price includes lunch, refreshments, a dedicated butler on standby and use of the main meeting room from 8am-5pm.

Excellently positioned within the bustling business-hub of the Putuo district, Guoman Shanghai will form the centre-point of a major business retail and residential development, the Guosan Centre Changfeng - perfectly located for both the business and leisure traveller with its close links to the city’s major commercial districts.

Two floors of the hotel will be dedicated to premium Eastern-inspired restaurants and bars, with the touches of British indulgence seen in the fleet of luxurious Guoman-operated Black cabs on hand to transport guests round the city; complete with DVD players, minibar fridges and upgraded soft, hand-stitched leather seats, as well as traditional English food and beverage menu options.

Offers are valid until 12 September 2010 and subject to availability. Complimentary Executive Club access is for up to two people.  For corporate enquiries and bookings, please email shanghai.enquiries@guoman.com or call +86 21 6095 8888
