Kerry Hotels, New Five-Star Brand from Shangri-La, Debuts in Shanghai

February 24, 2011 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Kerry Hotel Pudong, ShanghaiIt's here. The Kerry Hotel Pudong has opened in Shanghai, marking the debut of a new five-star hotel brand by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts. What's it all about? Kerry Hotels are aimed at the business traveler "who prefers a vibrant and relaxed environment without compromising on service or quality. The hotels are contemporary in style and provide a seamless link between business, entertainment and recreation," says Greg Dogan, CEO of Shangri-La International. We're pleased as punch about the contemporary room amenities: 40-inch flat-screen televisions, iPod docking stations and complimentary broadband and wireless Internet access, custom-designed in-room consoles with high stools and mini-bars, and sweeping views over Shanghai. We also like the sound of the in-house craft brewery and enormous gym called Kerry Sports, billed as the city's largest hotel-based sports club. Inside you'll find separate studios for spinning classes, Pilates and yoga along with a heated indoor pool, outdoor basketball court, tennis court, and outdoor roof garden with a jogging track. Next up for the brand: The Shangri-La's Kerry Centre Hotel in Beijing will be converted into the second Kerry Hotel after a multimillion dollar renovation scheduled for completion in 2012.

To celebrate its opening, Kerry Hotel Pudong, Shanghai offers a special introductory package until May 31, 2011. The package includes:

* Accommodation in a Deluxe Room (single or double occupancy)

* Daily breakfast for up to two persons

* Rmb300 dining credit per stay valid at The COOK, The MEET or The BREW

* A special Kerry welcome amenity

* Complimentary wired and wireless broadband Internet access

Rates start at Rmb1,688 plus tax, and reservations are subject to availability and advance booking.
