The CBD in China’s third largest city, Guangzhou, has welcomed a touch of Langham luxury. Opening last week, the strikingly designed 500-room Langham Place, Guangzhou stakes its place as the eighth hotel for the group in mainland China, the 20th in its global portfolio.

“We are delighted to officially open and introduce the Langham Place brand in this dynamic city,” says Brett Butcher, chief executive officer of Langham Hospitality Group.  “As a leading trading hub with 21st century infrastructure, Guangzhou represents an important milestone in our group’s continuous growth in mainland China and we are well on track to grow our Langham Place brand in key destinations around the world,” Butcher said.

Located on Pazhou Island at the south-eastern part of the city, the hotel is a two-minute stroll from the China Import and Export Fair Complex – home to the world’s largest annual trade fair – the Canton Fair. Langham Place, Guangzhou is situated next to the Xingangdong metro station and is half-hour drive from Guangzhou South High Speed Railway station, and only 40 minutes from Guangzhou International Airport.

Boasting the largest ballroom in the city, the Langham Place, Guangzhou has a combined meeting and event space of nearly 5,000 square metres. Perfect for conferences, exhibitions and social galas, The Great Hall is a 2,800 square-metre, pillar-free ballroom with an eight metre high ceiling and a dedicated 560 square-metre reception area. The Nanfung International Conference and Exhibition Centre is directly below the hotel, adding another 20,000 square metres over three floors. The hotel’s lush marble path lined outdoor promenade is dotted with water features and surrounded by rich greenery and flowers. With views of the Pearl River and the vibrant city as a backdrop, this venue is perfect for outdoor events.
