The Agreement for the Palmerston Hotel in Tianjin and the City Club of Tianjin, on top of the Hotel, was signed recently between Tianjin Somo Hotel Management Company Ltd. and Palmerston Hotels & Resorts.
Mr. Zhang Shen Nu, Chairman, Tianjin Somo Hotel Management Co., Ltd. stated “we are pleased to bring the Palmerston brand to China. While new, it is backed by the strong service and member oriented expertise and reputation of CCA International, the largest operator of upscale private member city clubs and golf courses in Asia and in Europe. CCA will also manage our City Club of Tianjin which will be located on the top floor of the Palmerston Hotel Tianjin”.
Mr. Helmut Knipp, executive director, Palmerston Hotels & Resorts, commented that “both Palmerston Hotels & Resorts and CCA International are excited by the prospect of opening two world class facilities in Tianjin. I have been personally impressed by the entrepreneurial spirit of Tianjin in general and Tianjin SOMO and its parent in particular”.
With a soft opening scheduled for July 2006, the Hotel will have 108 guest rooms and suites ranging from 45 square meters to 70 square meters, an international standard restaurant with seasonal outdoor terrace overlooking the Hai He River, a Bar, Bakery and Deli and an extensive spa with pool.
The City Club of Tianjin which occupies the top floor of the Hotel will have Chinese dining, Japanese Robatayaki style country cooking, a Bar, Cigar Divan and private dining rooms providing a panoramic view of the City.
Another unique aspect of the development will be 33 SOHO (Small Office – Home Office) suites available with all hotel services. These suites are ideally suited for business executives and entrepreneurs who need an office and sleeping accommodations at the same time.
Palmerston Hotels & Resorts and CCA International are owners and operators of boutique hotels and resorts and fine upscale members clubs in major capital cities of 15 countries in Asia and Europe.
