    The opening of the 296-room Renaissance Suzhou Wujiang Hotel in Shengze is the first internationally branded hotel in the area expanding Marriott’s footprint in China and one step closer to their goal of making Marriott International the most popular global tourism company in Asia Pacific, according to Henry Lee, Chief Operation Official, Greater China of Marriott International.

    In addition to the 296 guest rooms, the new Renaissance Suzhou Wujiang Hotel also boasts 15 spacious suites that have their own kitchenettes with refrigerators. All guest rooms feature plush bedding, high speed wireless internet, an LED TV and a spacious work area.

    Guests may also enjoy a 24-hour fitness centre as well as an indoor heated swimming pool boasting magnificent lake views.

    Dining and bar facilities at the Renaissance Suzhou Wujiang Hotel includes:

    Wan Li Chinese Restaurant – flavours of Canton, Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces are served in a chic and inviting interior within 11 private dining rooms.
    Food Studio – serves a wide range of international specialties in the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant that offers buffet and a la cart dining.
    Smokimoto Korean Restaurant – offers delicious traditional Korean dishes including a sumptuous barbeque selection as well as fresh Japanese sashimi.
    R Bar – a chic and energetic evening gathering place that offers live music, a variety of canapés, cocktails, craft beers and fresh juices.

    The Renaissance Suzhou Wujiang Hotel features 3,800 square metres of conference and meeting space, with a stunning 1,600 square metre pillar-less Grand Ballroom that can be partitioned into three smaller rooms, and is equipped with a 140 square meter LCD screen and state-of-the-art audiovisual system. The Junior Ballroom is 400 square meters in area and can also be partitioned into three sections. There are also six multipurpose rooms for small groups and meetings.

    As a major stop along the ancient Silk Road, Shengze was a famously prosperous base for silk production. Its remaining Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasty buildings now draw thousands of tourists each year. Today silk remains the focus of a more diversified local economy for Shengze, which also includes a burgeoning high-tech sector and hundreds of foreign enterprises. Local businesses benefit from the city’s location at the junction of three of the most economically developed administrative divisions of China – Zhejiang Province, Jiangsu Province and the Municipality of Shanghai.
