Pullman, Accor’s upscale brand, has announced the opening of Pullman Shanghai South, its second property in Shanghai and its 15th in China. With 45 hotels and resorts in Asia Pacific – including 32 in Asia – Pullman has confirmed its strong growth and success in this region with the new opening.
Ideally situated in one of Southern Shanghai’s most bustling districts, Pullman Shanghai South offers offers direct access to the Star Plaza commercial complex and is close to the Shanghai Stadium and Caohejing High-Tech Park. The hotel has 338 rooms and suites, an indoor pool, eight meeting rooms, and four bars and restaurants.
The Pullman network expanded at an unprecedented pace in 2012 and 2013, with major hotels opened in key international capitals such as London, Brussels, Bangkok, Jakarta and Sydney. In Asia, for example, the brand opened 15 addresses in two years, the most recent of which include Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar, Malaysia; Pullman Saigon Centre and Pullman Danang Beach Resort, Vietnam; and Pullman Phuket Arcadia, Thailand.
Over half of the brand’s establishments are now located in Asia Pacific. Pullman is present in Asia Pacific’s main business hubs and tourist destinations including Bali in Indonesia, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam, and 11 hotels across Australia.
Pullman plans to add 47 new addresses to its Asian portfolio by 2018, including 38 in China, three in India and two in Indonesia.
Michael Issenberg, CEO HotelServices Asia Pacific at Accor, says: “Expansion in Asia Pacific is a priority for Pullman. We plan to open 47 new hotels here over the next four years to reach more than 90 hotels in the region, or over half the brand’s network. Our expansion focuses on key tourist destinations and strategic business hubs. This deployment reflects the brand’s ‘work hard, play hard spirit’. For example, we will soon unveil the Pullman New Delhi International Airport in India and the Pullman Bandung City Centre in Indonesia.”
