Starwood announced it will open three new properties across China by the end of this year. The new hotels include a St. Regis in Chengdu, a W in Beijing, and a Luxury Collection hotel in Hangzhou.

The St. Regis Chengdu, slated to open late this summer, will be located within walking distance of Tianfu Square and the Chun Xi Road retail district of the city. The hotel will have 279 guestrooms and suites, six dining venues, and over 4,265 square feet (396 square meters) of meeting and event space.

The hotel will have 353 guestrooms, four restaurants and bars, and 7,545 square feet (701 square meters) of meeting and event space, including a grand ballroom.
Set to open this fall, the Azure Qiantang, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Hangzhou, will have 205 guestrooms and suites, two restaurants, and a lobby bar serving tea and local desserts. The property will also have a 2,100-square-foot (195-square-meter) grand ballroom, as well as seven separate conference rooms.
