Michael Issenberg, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, Accor Asia Pacific, said, “We have had a record six months since announcing our 1,000th hotel with the Pullman Tokyo Tamachi late last year and it’s incredible to think that we have added another 100 hotels already since then. Sofitel Beijing Central will be a great addition to our network in China and will become one of the premier luxury hotels in the city.”
Gary Rosen, Chairman & Chief Operating Officer, Accor Greater China, added, “2019 marks the 55th anniversary of Sino-French relations and coincides with the 55th anniversary of the Sofitel brand. We are excited to launch a new Sofitel in China’s capital against the backdrop of these two significant occasions. France is one of the most popular outbound destinations for Chinese travelers and as an ambassador of French culture, Sofitel enjoys tremendous opportunities as a preferred brand for luxury travelers.”
