Ranking as the 88th property in the growing international portfolio of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou held its official opening ceremonies on July 23, 2012, celebrating the dawn of a new era of luxury hospitality in China's third largest metropolitan area. Rising 103 stories above the Pearl River, the new Guangzhou International Finance Center (GZIFC) building's top 30 floors are home to Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou, along with an events complex on the lower floors at ground level.
"We are particularly pleased to be the 88th Four Seasons hotel worldwide, doubling our luck for a successful future in Guangzhou," says Regional Vice President and General Manager Bahram Sepahi.
To welcome the first guests to the new Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou, the Hotel is offering a special Have It All Introductory Package, including luxurious accommodations, daily buffet breakfast, daily dining and entertainment credit, daily Spa treatment and premium internet service, available August 15 to October 15, 2012. The popular Four Seasons Bed and Breakfast package is also available beginning immediately.
"It's the perfect time to book a trip to Guangzhou, in advance of the fall Canton Fair," says Kent Li, a Guangzhou native who is the Hotel's Chef Concierge, referring to the twice-annual China Import and Export Fair. Known widely as the Canton Fair, the 112th event takes place in three phases: October 15-19, October 23-27, and October 31-November 4, 2012.
"The famed Guangzhou Opera House is right next door to the Hotel, with a full calendar of concerts and other performances. And, to get to know more of the Pearl River New City area, we've created a walking tour, as detailed in our new In the Know newsletter," adds Li.
