SHERATON Hangzhou Wetland Park Resort, which opened last month in Xixi National Wetland Park (TTG Asia e-Daily, November 25), is gearing itself for MICE business.
MICE faclities at the 380-key property include an independent 1,946m2 conference centre, nine meeting rooms, a pillarless ballroom for a 600-pax banquet, and an outdoor pre-function area for 1,000 pax.
The hotel is located within Westbrook Resort, an integrated complex which features various restaurants and bars, more than 160 retail and commercial outlets, a theatre and a museum, as well as five other hotels including Banyan Tree Hangzhou.
General manager Colin Vickers said: “We are the only resort in Hangzhou featuring a large outdoor venue, which is the perfect place for a pre-event cocktail.”
“With our outdoor venues, the guest experience combines well with the extension of the Xixi Wetlands right up to the hotel itself. The option of having a tranquil location after a busy day aids our guests’ overall relaxation.”
According to Vickers, global and local companies have already booked meeting space at the hotel, and business is looking strong from December through the first quarter of 2012.
Meanwhile, Sheraton Hangzhou Wetland Park Resort is offering introductory rates valid till February 29, 2012. Full-day meeting packages start from RMB550 (US$86.5) per person and half-day packages start from RMB450 per person. Accommodation rates start from RMB1,000 per room per night.
