Beijing ho­tel rec­og­nized for ex­cel­lence

China Daily (Canada) - - ACROSSCANADA - By WANG RU in Beijing wan­gru@chi­nadaily.com.cn

Opened in Beijing in the fall of 2012, the Toronto-based Four Sea­sons Ho­tel quickly be­came one of the city’s most suc­cess­ful ho­tels.

Last week, San­jiv Hu­lu­galle, the gen­eral man­ager, re­ceived a let­ter of recog­ni­tion from Cana­dian Am­bas­sador Guy Sain­tJac­ques for his out­stand­ing ser­vices and the ho­tel’s thriv­ing per­for­mance.

“For Cana­di­ans, the suc­cess of the Four Sea­sons in Beijing has been a great source of pride as well as a ‘home away from home’,” said the am­bas­sador.

“Four Sea­sons Beijing has been sup­port­ive to the events of the Cana­dian Em­bassy in Beijing, since we love to make the ho­tel a suc­cess­ful Cana­dian brand and a ho­tel that brings the good­will of Cana­di­ans to China,” said Hu­lu­galle.

Dur­ing this Christ­mas, Four Sea­sons Beijing will help raise funds for Ed­u­cat­ing Girls of Ru­ral China (EGRC), a Canada-regis­tered char­ity ded­i­cated to help­ing young women from ru­ral ar­eas of Western China to ob­tain an ed­u­ca­tion.

Lo­cated on Liang­maqiao Road in Beijing’s Chaoyang dis­trict, the Four Sea­sons Ho­tel Beijing, with 313 rooms, in­clud­ing 66 suites, pro­vides spe­cial fea­tures to cus­tomers from fine wed­ding ser­vices to tra­di­tional Chi­nese medicine treat­ments.

“Since the Olympics Games in 2008, Beijing has be­come a very com­pet­i­tive mar­ket for lux­ury ho­tels,” said Irene Tan, di­rec­tor of mar­ket­ing of Four Sea­sons Beijing. “But our ho­tel has made a solid suc­cess in Beijing by pro­vid­ing the qual­ity of ser­vices and gain­ing a deep and com­pre­hen­sive un­der­stand­ing of Beijing and lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.”

“I am very proud that the Four Sea­sons Ho­tel Beijing has po­si­tioned it­self so bril­liantly here – out­shin­ing many other world lux­ury-brand ho­tels, and in such a short pe­riod of time,” said the am­bas­sador.

On Nov 28, Travel + Leisure, a lead­ing travel mag­a­zine world­wide, an­nounced the 2014 China Travel Awards. At the awards cer­e­mony, all eight Four Sea­sons ho­tels in China – Beijing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Hong Kong, Ma­cau, Shang­hai and Shen­zhen – were rec­og­nized in sev­eral cat­e­gories in­clud­ing China’s Top 100 Ho­tels, China’s Best New Ho­tels and China’s Top 20 Bou­tique Ho­tels.

“As you know, peo­ple visit ho­tels for a va­ri­ety of rea­sons. But they re­turn thanks to a won­der­ful wel­come, daz­zling cui­sine, and a great night’s sleep,” said St. Jac­ques.

He said the Four Sea­sons Beijing has not only earned the loy­alty of its re­turn­ing guests, it has also been rec­og­nized by the wider Beijing com­mu­nity, lead­ing travel mag­a­zines, web­sites and blogs, and has earned pres­ti­gious awards that have dis­tin­guished the Four Sea­sons brand, gen­er­ally, and its Beijing prop­erty, in par­tic­u­lar, as one of the very finest in the in­dus­try.

In two years, the ho­tel won Best Con­fer­ence Ho­tel of the Year 2013 by China BT MICE; the 2014 Cer­tifi­cate of Ex­cel­lence by TripAd­vi­sor and Daobao.com.

For the 17th con­sec­u­tive year, Four Sea­sons was named one of For­tune Mag­a­zine’s 100 Best Com­pa­nies to Work For.

“The ho­tel has brought qual­ity, in­no­va­tion and class to Beijing; has made the Beijing prop­erty a place where ex­cel­lence is per­son­i­fied; and has helped to brand Canada – su­perbly – in China,” said the am­bas­sador.
