Hotel Nikko Wuxi, New Luxury Hotel, Opens In Wuxi, China
September 27, 2010, Tokyo – JAL Hotels Co., Ltd. opened Hotel Nikko Wuxi today, a new luxury hotel with five-star-level international facilities and services, offering both Japanese hospitality and local Chinese culture and heritage.
The hotel, built along a very old canal that is to become a UNESCO World Heritage site, is conveniently situated in central Wuxi. With a population of 4.6 million, Wuxi is the center of China’s Jiangnan region waterways and the site of 3,000 years of cultural heritage. It is sometimes called “Little Shanghai,” due to its proximity to Shanghai, fast urbanization and booming economy.
Hotel Nikko Wuxi offers 499 spacious guest rooms with amenities including a large LCD-TV with satellite channels (including CNN) and broadband. The hotel’s dining facilities include Café Serena, which serves an international breakfast buffet; Benkay Japanese restaurant on the top (22nd) floor, with breathtaking views; and Chinese restaurant Toh-Lee, which offers six private rooms. The 6,400-square-foot ballroom, the city’s largest, holds 320 guests, banquet-style. With seven additional meeting spaces, the hotel accommodates all types of meetings and functions. Other facilities include an indoor swimming pool, fitness center, massage room and beauty salon.
The hotel is easily accessible for both domestic and international travelers, and expects to welcome both. It is a 10-minute-drive to the hotel from Wuxi’s railroad station, and 25-minute-drive from Wuxi’s international airport. A high-speed train shortens the two-hour car ride from Shanghai to 40 minutes.
Hotel Nikko Wuxi will offer opening rates for guests in Superior rooms from September 28-December 31, 2010. For reservations, visit http://www.nikkowuxi.com/.
