Fraser Place Binhai Tianjin, Frasers Hospitality’s second property in the port city in north-eastern China, has opened.
The serviced apartment offers 224 keys, in several configurations ranging from studios to two-bedroom apartments, as well as smart meeting facilities and function rooms.
Other facilities include an all-day dining restaurant, a lobby bar, a swimming pool and a gym. Guests will also enjoy complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, 24/7 room service and a free shuttle service.
Fraser Place Binhai Tianjin is centrally located in the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area (TEDA), close to the TEDA MSD shopping centre and the BMT station.
Having noted a 10 per cent growth in the number of room nights booked by Chinese travellers from FY2016 to FY2017 across its global portfolio of properties, Frasers Hospitality is strengthening its presence in China and leveraging the opportunities of China’s burgeoning domestic tourism market. Chinese travellers also account for almost half of the guests in the country, signifying China’s booming domestic travel market that is ripe for more expansion within the country.
“China is key to our future growth as it currently represents a quarter of our portfolio. The opening of Fraser Place Binhai Tianjin is significant as it underlines our ambitions to grow our presence in China. In addition to entering new Chinese cities, we are also building on our presence in cities that we already operate in so that we may better provide travellers with more options that cater to their needs,” Choe Peng Sum, Frasers Hospitality’s CEO, said in a statement.
Frasers Hospitality currently has 16 properties in 11 cities across China, with another 16 properties in the pipeline.
