Pullman Shanghai Qingpu Excellence is the 36th Pullman hotel in Greater China.

Accor Greater China announced the opening of Pullman Shanghai Qingpu Excellence, located in the heart of Qingpu's Industrial Zone. The hotel is 40 minutes by car to Shanghai Hongqiao Airport and 60 minutes to the city's central business district. 

The 292-key hotel features a variety of F&B options, such as YUE•Café, which features home style Western, Asian and Chinese dishes; The Q - Seafood & Grill, a modern steak and seafood house; as well as Azur Chinese restaurant, which serves up Shanghainese, Cantonese and local Qingpu dishes. The lobby lounge, too, is where guests will find Pullman's signature cocktails and tapas. 

In terms of meetings, Pullman's Meet & Play meeting concept is on full display here, with breaks, icebreakers and team activities built into every business event to allow attendees to, as the name suggests, work and play at the same time. For spaces, Pullman Shanghai Qingpu Excellence spots more than 1,600sqm of banquet space, with the largest ballroom in Qingpu along with seven other function rooms. The 800sqm grand ballroom, for example, is ideal for high-level meetings and business galas. There is also an outdoor terrace connected to the grand ballroom to facilitate activities and evening cocktails. 

Gary Rosen, chairman and COO, Accor Greater China, says, "Pullman Shanghai Qingpu Excellence is our 36th Pullman hotel opened in Greater China. This hotel offers a strategic location at the junction of Shanghai with Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces, connecting destinations such as Suzhou, Jiaxing and Shanghai Hongqiao New Business District. With strong support from the local government on infrastructure alongside the business developments of Qingpu Industrial Zone, the future looks promising with unparalleled commercial opportunities. Pullman's introduction complements the area's development by offering leisure and corporate travelers a new level of premium hospitality."
 
Hanson Xu, general manager with Pullman Shanghai Qingpu Excellence, says, "We are so excited to open this groundbreaking hotel to reinforce Pullman's internationally renowned offerings with its well equipped facilities. We look forward to welcoming business travellers from the rapidly developing commercial district as well as leisure and family guests for weekend getaways."
