Sheraton Hotels & Resorts Unveils Its New Vision in China With the Opening of Sheraton Mianyang
Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 30 extraordinary brands, today announces the opening of Sheraton Mianyang. The 342-room hotel will be the first fully transformed hotel in Asia-Pacific to bring to life the brand’s new vision as part of a worldwide transformation which focuses on design and experience signatures that foster community, gathering, and productivity in all areas of the hotel. Drawing on its roots as a gathering place for both locals and guests in communities around the world, the new approach for Sheraton creates an intuitive and holistic experience with places to connect, be productive, and bring a sense of belonging.
“Sheraton Mianyang provides a living and breathing showcase of our new vision for Sheraton, underscoring our commitment to well position the brand to meet demand of today’s travelers.” said Amanda Nichols, Global Brand Leader, Sheraton Hotels & Resorts. “The new hotel is part of a global reinvention journey currently being undertaken by Sheraton Hotels & Resorts to bring all of its properties in line with the new vision, which will showcase the brand’s new focus on services and design that enable socialization, productivity, and personalization, featuring collaborative venues and technology that enable unique experiences.”
Sheraton Mianyang is located in the heart of the Xianhai Scenic Area in Sichuan, a China national AAAA tourist attraction, which consists of 46 islands and stunning mountains. The magnificent natural landscape acts as a backdrop for the hotel, enabling guests to immerse themselves in nature by hiking in the mountains, and cruising and kayaking in the crystal-clear waters. Travelers can easily access the cosmopolitan city of Mianyang via a 40-minute train from Chengdu or a 40-minute drive from the Mianyang Nanjiao Airport and Mianyang Railway Station.
“We are thrilled to welcome Sheraton Mianyang to the Sheraton community and to celebrate it as the first hotel in China to embody all of the brand’s new signatures. This new hotel exemplifies our vision for the brand, underscoring our commitment to provide a sociable, productive, and personalized hotel experience, which Chinese travelers are looking for,” said Henry Lee, President, Greater China, Marriott International. “Within Greater China, Sheraton has the strongest footprint amongst the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio, with more than 80 hotels throughout the country. We are committed to continue growing and transforming the brand with two new openings in Xi’an later this year.”
A Modern-Day Community Hub
The lobby is at the heart of the guest experience at Sheraton Mianyang. The lobby has been re-imagined as the community hub of the hotel; a holistic, open space that invites people to join together or be alone amongst others, creating a sense of energy and belonging. With a flow that is natural, intuitive, and uncomplicated, guests have what they need within arm’s reach, all set against an inviting backdrop that feels warm and comfortable yet refined. Drawing inspiration to the hotel’s scenic surroundings, the design of the lobby incorporates elements of the Xianhai Scenic Area and the Sichuan bamboo, creating a connection to the local community. A dedicated Community Manager is a friendly face that is always on hand to help guests and locals with anything they need, while also delivering unique guest experiences through curated community programs and events.
Sheraton Mianyang features many of the signature elements of the new vision. This includes the Community Table, an inviting, purpose-built workspace that anchors the hotel’s lobby and allow guests to work, eat, and drink while soaking up the energy of the space. Following Sheraton’s philosophy to embrace both form and function, these tables are custom designed with amenities to keep guests productive, including built-in lighting, outlets, and charging stations.
The Studios, flexible gathering spaces available to book whenever a guest needs it, celebrate collaborative working and connecting with others in a less formal setting. Enclosed with glass, the tech-enabled Studios allow guests to contribute to the energy of the public space while also providing privacy and focus for everything from small group meetings to private dining experiences. The Booths are also strategically placed throughout the lobby, perfect for a spontaneous phone call to connect privately with friends, family, or colleagues from afar.
New Elevated Food & Beverage Experience
Built with its global, productivity-focused guest in mind, Sheraton Mianyang’s new elevated food & beverage offering creates a focal point in the lobby experience. Part bar, part coffee bar, part market, the &More by Sheraton is a central pillar of the new Sheraton vision, transitioning guests seamlessly from day to night with food & beverage options that are locally-sourced, easy to consume while working and customizable to accommodate all tastes and time schedules. Guests can enjoy a wide range of beverages ranging from freshly brewed artisanal coffees during the day to signature cocktails including Espresso Cappuccino Martini and Espresso-Tonic in the evening.
The hotel also features two additional restaurants and a bar, where guests are pampered with a wide array of local delicacies and international cuisines.
