China Daily (Hong Kong) - - HOSPITALITY - By ZHUAN TI zhuanti@chi­nadaily.com.cn

Shangri-La Ho­tel Changchun in Jilin prov­ince is cel­e­brat­ing the on­go­ing Christ­mas sea­son with a se­ries of char­ity events.

The ho­tel hosted a Christ­mas tree light­ing cer­e­mony in its lobby and an­nounced its 2017 Hougang Vil­lage Poverty Re­lief Project on Dec 2.

Nearly 200 guests from 12 coun­tries par­tic­i­pated in the cos­play-style char­ity party to raise funds, which will be used to re­build un­der­priv­i­leged farm­ers’ houses in Hougang vil­lage in Yushu, a city un­der the ad­min­is­tra­tion of the pro­vin­cial cap­i­tal, Changchun.

The ho­tel’s Christ­mas tur­key and ham ham­pers, as well as other fes­tive good­ies, are on sale from Dec 1 to 26 with pro­ceeds go­ing to the project.

T he Changchun For­eign Af­fairs Of­fice, Jilin Univer­sity In­ter­na­tional Ed­u­ca­tion In­sti­tute, Changchun In­sti­tute of An­i­ma­tion and China Daily also joined in.

The Christ­mas party and the 2017 project re­flect the con­tin­u­ous char­ity ef­forts of the ho­tel.

The ho­tel raised some 65,000 yuan ($9,372) through a char­ity auc­tion in March, which it com­bined with other sources of fund­ing for a to­tal do­na­tion of 200,000 yuan. All of the funds were spent on help­ing poor vil­lagers to re­build their houses.

Five fam­i­lies in the vil­lage ben­e­fited from the do­na­tion and moved into their new homes in Oc­to­ber.

Named “Best Busi­ness Ho­tel” in Changchun in Novem­ber by travel mag­a­zine Busi­ness Trav­eller China in the 2016 read- ers’ poll, the ho­tel is lo­cated in down­town Changhun and has just com­pleted a full ren­o­va­tion of its deluxe gue­strooms and ser­viced apart­ments.

The award is de­ter­mined by a poll con­ducted by the pub­li­ca­tion among its read­er­ship of fre­quent trav­el­ers based mainly in China.

The up­grade in­volved an ar­ray of ad­vanced ameni­ties, pro­vid­ing trav­el­ers with an en­vi­able life­style in the city’s com­mer­cial cen­ter, ac­cord­ing to the ho­tel.

The ho­tel has in­stalled ad­vanced PM2.5 filtration equip­ment in its new gue­strooms and apart­ments. A newly in­stalled air con­di­tion­ing sys­tem en­ables guests to ad­just the tem­per­a­ture to their per­sonal pref­er­ence year-round, while in-room hu­mid­i­fy­ing sys­tems keep hu­mid­ity at the op­ti­mal level.
