TOKYO | Hotel Nikko Tianjin, a new five-star-level hotel opening today in Tianjin, China, is the latest addition to the Nikko Hotels International group of luxury hotels, JAL Hotels Co., Ltd. announced today. The opening signals the continued expansion in China of the Nikko Hotels International chain, operated by JAL Hotels.
Tianjin, a city of 10 million, is the biggest port city in northern China and an increasingly important international hub for business and industry -- companies such as Toyota and Coca Cola have large facilities there. The city, which has been selected as a soccer venue for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, also expects to see an increase in tourism.
Hotel Nikko Tianjin is located in the city's choicest location, on Tianjin's main boulevard, Nanjing Avenue. The hotel is 22 stories high, with three basement-level floors. It stands between two luxury office towers in the heart of Tianjin's commercial center.
Hotel Nikko Tianjin boasts Tianjin's largest banquet room and also features five meeting rooms, six restaurants, a business center, indoor pool and a spa and fitness center. The hotel's 373 guest rooms are extra-spacious with large bathrooms and luxury amenities.
Guests can choose from a range of dining options, including Chinese, Japanese and deli restaurants, an "all-day dining" restaurant and a bar.
