Accor has announced the opening of Pullman Yueyang in Hunan province. The contemporary premium hotel is the ancient Chinese city’s first international upscale branded hotel and Pullman’s 39th property to open in Greater China.
The property is located by the famous Dongting Lake, Nanhu scenic area in Yueyang. An important central Chinese city along the Yangtze River with more than 25 centuries of history, Yueyang is the only international trade port in Hunan. With stunning lake views, the hotel offers easy access to tourist destinations including Nanhu Square, Sheng’an Temple and Jin’e Park. The hotel is just eight kilometers away from the central business district, 30 minutes’ drive from Yueyang East Railway Station, and 35 minutes’ drive from Yueyang Sanhe Airport.
Gary Rosen, chairman and chief operating officer of Accor Greater China, said: “Pullman Yueyang, as the only internationally renowned premium branded hotel in the city of Yueyang, will help accelerate the development of the city’s business sector with unique brand concept and facilities to support meetings, conferences and events. The hotel will further reinforce Pullman’s hallmark such as Art at Play that enhances guest enjoyment of great work-life balance through outstanding creative experiences, regardless of whether they are for business or pleasure. Pullman Yueyang will blend in beautifully with the cultural scene of this remarkable and historically significant destination.”
Pullman Yueyang offers 213 spacious guestrooms and suites, with the majority boasting balconies and panoramic views of Dongting Lake. In keeping with the natural surroundings, the hotel’s design features water and forest elements.
Stephen Li, general manager at Pullman Yueyang, said: “The hotel is an intriguing blend of Yueyang’s thousands year old charm with Pullman’s contemporary and cosmopolitan flair. Our advanced and spacious MICE offerings with Pullman’s Meet & Play concept are second to none in the local market.”
