As an avid support of the Global Hotel Alliance (GHA) program and having reach Black status for 2015, I am extremely excited that the Pan Pacific Hotel Group has decided to extend its international footprint by opening the 319-unit Pan Pacific Tianjin in China. This is the fifth “Pan Pacific” in China after four other “Pan Pacific” hotels and serviced suites in Xiamen, Suzhou and Ningbo, marking the extension of the brand footprint along the east coast and into the northern region.
The largest coastal city in northern China, Tianjin is about 30 minutes by high-speed train from Beijing and is a major seaport and gateway to the Chinese capital. Home to some 300 Fortune 500 companies, it has become an important hub for industrial and financial activity. The city’s historic architecture, cultural monuments and exotic cuisine are some of its main tourism draws.
Part of mixed-use development, The Esplanade, Pan Pacific Tianjin is situated along the scenic Haihe River and at the intersection of the key commercial districts of Hongqiao, Nankai and Hebei. It is a 40-minute drive from Tianjin Binhai International Airport and 10 minutes away from Tianjin Railway Station. Blending history and traditions of the East with luxury and modernity of the West, the new property promises to deliver the distinctive “Pan Pacific” brand of hospitality through a wide range of elegant accommodation choices, diverse culinary delights, versatile event spaces and discreet, personalised service that have incorporated elements of the vibrant local culture.
Perfectly meeting the needs of both short-term and extended-stay travellers, Pan Pacific Tianjin features 289 exquisitely furnished guestrooms with either a city or river view, and 30 well-appointed serviced suites with full kitchenette and laundry facilities. Designed by internationally acclaimed Singapore architectural firm DP Architects and Hong Kong-based interior design house Cheng Chung Designs, the property has adopted the use of soothing Pacific hues of gold, blue and grey, as well as earthy textures of wood and stone. Meanwhile, the art pieces on the guestrooms’ walls reflect the various architectural styles that can be found across Tianjin.
With its exciting menu of culinary offerings, Pan Pacific Tianjin is all set to establish itself as a leading player in the city’s dining scene. Selections include the all-day dining restaurant Pacifica which serves Asian and Pacific-inspired cuisine; signature “Pan Pacific” Chinese restaurant Hai Tien Lo that presents Cantonese classics and local specialties; a Noodle Bar for a quick-fix quality meal; and the elegant Lobby Lounge that provides a conducive setting for casual and business meetings over drinks and light bites.
