Marriott opens new Pudong hotel to tap tourism boom

SHANGHAI'S tourism industry will continue to boom in years to come, especially after the opening of Shanghai Disneyland in 2015, officials said today.

Though the occupancy rate of some hotels suffered due to a spate of hotels opening before the World Expo in Shanghai in 2010, the industry still has a promising future, said James Macadie, general manager of Shanghai Marriott Hotel Pudong East which opened today in the Jinqiao area.

"An increasing number of Chinese business travelers from outside Shanghai will choose to stay in a five-star hotel in the city," he said, adding that his new hotel is located in a district very popular for business travelers and tourists alike.

The government of Pudong plans to build Jinqiao and Chuansha into the International Tourism Zone with total investment exceeding 100 billion yuan, said Pudong Governor Jiang Liang.

The zone will have Shanghai Disneyland in the center, surrounded by other theme parks and tourism facilities. The 24.5-billion-yuan Disneyland Park is already under construction.
