Langham Place opens its doors in Guangzhou, China

By Chris Chamberlin, November 1 2013

The Langham Hospitality Group have said ‘n? h?o’ to Guangzhou – China Southern's hub city, marking the group’s 8th property in mainland China.

Located on Pazhou Island in the south-eastern part of the city, the 500-room luxury hotel is close to the China Import and Export Fair Complex – home to the Canton Fair, whilst also sitting directly above the Nanfung International Conference and Exhibition Centre.

The unique look of Langham Place, Guangzhou was designed by award-winning architects Aedas

In addition, the hotel boasts the largest ballroom in the city – and with enough food and beverage choices to satisfy even the fussiest eater, the property is sure to appeal to conference goers and leisure travellers alike.

The group spruiks their guestrooms’ “contemporary style with clean lines and muted hues”, though the penthouse adds a layer of excitement with its fully-equipped kitchenette, six person dining room and specious living room on the top floor of the hotel.
