Preferred Hotel Group has expanded its presence China following the launch of a new partnership with Himalayas Hotels & Communities.
The new agreement will lead to the addition of two new Himalayas hotels, in Shandong and Jiangsu provinces, to the Preferred portfolio. Himalayas Qingdao Hotel will join Preferred Hotels & Resorts portfolio, while Himalayas Nantong Hotel will become a member of Preferred Boutique.
The addition of two new properties increases brand’s portfolio in China to 23 hotels.
“Our partnership with Himalayas Hotels & Communities is a significant development, as it exemplifies our commitment to expand the Preferred Hotel Group brand into secondary cities across China,” said Anthony Ross, Preferred’s executive vice president for Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa.
Himalayas Qingdao Hotel will open at the end of March, while the Himalayas Nantong Hotel will follow in April.
