• Accor opens first international upscale hotel in Linyi, China

    23 January 2013

    Pullman Linyi LushangPullman, Accor’s upscale hotel brand specifically catering to the needs of today’s cosmopolitan traveller, has announced its debut in Linyi – the cultural and historical destination in southern Shandong province – with the opening of Pullman Linyi Lushang.

    The newly-built 312-room property is the latest addition to Pullman’s Greater China portfolio, which now counts 16 operating hotels with a further 28 projects committed and scheduled to open by 2015.

    Featuring 312 well-appointed guest rooms, including 14 suites, Pullman Linyi Lushang boasts unbeatable comfort. At 40m2, the hotel’s standard rooms are among the largest in the city. Thanks to its proximity to the Yi River, a signature landmark of Linyi, hotel guests can enjoy views of either the river or of the vibrant city.

    Paul Richardson, Chief Operating Officer of Accor Greater China, said: “The opening of Pullman Linyi Lushang further demonstrates Accor’s overall expansion strategy, which looks for growth opportunities in different cities across the country.”


    The 280-meter-tall Lumina Shanghai, developed by Henderson Land Group and designed by Gensler, is the tallest skyscraper in the Xuhui Riverside District.

    A sophisticated yet modern setting was derived by juxtaposition of Indochine-Vietnamese features and wood-fire inspired material palettes. Re-interpretation of the spatial order of a typical Indochine-Vietnamese mansion has been adopted to give hierarchy, layers and details to the space.
