“In a city that is home to pioneering companies such as Alibaba, GE, Cisco and well-known international financial institutions, Hangzhou is an ideal destination for us to grow our Cachet brand,” said CHG’s president & CEO, Alexander Mirza said.
“The WPC development fits our strategy of partnering with innovative developers with a strong and daring vision and will push the boundaries of what a hotel can be.”
The hotel will feature a series of high-tech amenities, including a keyless mobile check-in and in-room tablets to access hotel services, like in-room dining, laundry and housekeeping.
There will also be a significant amount of function space, including a top floor ballroom, and a large nightclub. The launch of the Drai’s AfterHours & Nightclub follows a recent partnership between CHG and Las Vegas nightlife mogul, Victor Drai.
The Cachet Deluxe Hangzhou becomes the third Cachet-branded hotel in CHG’s pipeline, following previously-announced openings in Chengdu and Bangkok. The company also operates the eco-friendly URBN brand, which it is planning to launch in Kunming.
