The Singapore-headquartered Park Hotel Group recently celebrated the Grand Opening of Grand Park Xian in China\'s ancient capital famed for the Terracotta Warriors.
In late 2008, Park Hotel Group acquired the former Grand Castle Hotel and rebranded it as Grand Park Xian.
The 330-room five-star Grand Park Xian, which has been newly refurbished, is adjacent to the ancient city wall is in the heart of the city\'s business, shopping and entertainment district.
Park Hotel Group\'s fast-growing portfolio of hotels covers Singapore, mainland China, Hong Kong, and Japan. The group has stated that it intends to expand further in China, saying that it will be looking at ten more hotels in the next three to five years.
According to Allen Law, a director of Park Hotel Group, despite the downturn, the group is taking a long-term perspective of things and intends to continue exploring opportunities for expansion in China and the wider Asia-Pacific region.
Grand Park Xian\'s grand opening ceremony was attended by VIPs from Shaanxi Provincial Government and Shaanxi Tourism Bureau as well as board members of Park Hotel Group.
