    Hong Kong : Hotel operator Accor has announced its 600th hotel in Asia Pacific with the signing of the Park Lane Hong Kong to the group’s Pullman brand. The rebranding of the Park Lane Hotel to Pullman is also the brand’s 50th hotel in the region.

    “The addition of The Park Lane Hong Kong to the Pullman brand is a milestone for Accor because it brings us a strategic hotel in the centre of one of the world’s most important business and tourism hubs at a time when Pullman is really affirming itself as one of the most exciting hotel brands in the region,” said Michael Issenberg, chairman and CEO of Accor Asia Pacific.

    The hotel will be re-launched on January 1 2015, with a renovation programme to incorporate Pullman’s elements to the 826-room property in place over the next two years, including a make-over of the Park Lane Suites, executive floors, dining outlets, meeting rooms and executive lounge.

    It boasts 14 meeting rooms with a total of 1,393 sqm event space and offers various packages. For instance, an AGM package starts at US$51 per person, which includes four hours’ use of function rooms with a coffee break. Other full day package is also available at US$63 to US$87. The hotel’s roof top garden can also be booked for celebrations or events, with XMAS packages available.

    “The Park Lane’s meeting facilities, including the new rooftop terrace and newly renovated business centre, will be a major drawcard for MICE organisers,” said Issenberg. “Pullman hotels focus on ensuring connectivity for travelers and providing the latest technology, which combined with the great location of The Park Lane, will help attract meetings from all around the world.”

    The Pullman brand aims to further expand in Asia Pacific, with more than 40 hotels in the pipeline across the region over the next few years.- ACCOR

    • Connecting you with the world of travel and tourism

      What they say

      Tourism is a people’s sector. One in 10 people in the world are directly or indirectly employed by tourism. Ours is the responsibility to ensure that tourism benefits each and every community, leaving no one behind.
      Tourism’s sustained growth brings immense opportunities for economic welfare and development. Yet, it also brings in many challenges. Adapting our sector to the challenges of safety and security, to constant market changes, to digitalization and the limits of our natural resources should be priorities in our common action.
      As we move towards a future guided by the universal 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), I take upon me to lead UNWTO with a strong focus on building partnerships with public and private sector, fostering jobs and opportunities for all, mastering technology and innovation and advancing sustainability and the fight against climate change.
      I trust that, together with our Member States and our partners from around the world, we can build a more competitive and responsible tourism sector for the benefit of all. I wish you a very happy 2018.
