New MGM-Branded Hotel Coming to Shanghai West Bund
A new MGM-branded hotel is coming to Shanghai soon. An agreement has been reached between Diaoyutai MGM Hospitality, a joint venture between China’s Diaoyutai State Guesthouse and MGM Resorts International, and Shanghai West Bund Development to bring the famous MGM brand to Shanghai West Bund.
MGM Shanghai West Bund is expected to attract luxury travelers and locals alike with its combination of eye-catching design, dining options and award-wining spa facilities. The venue will also form the backdrop for a dazzling array of Vegas-inspired entertainment programs such as live performances by famous artists, exhibitions of globally influential artwork and more. All attractions will be delivered with MGM’s signature guest service.
MGM Shanghai West Bund will have a total of 219 rooms. That includes 161 stylish guest rooms and 58 suites. There’s also an Italian restaurant with its own authentic pizza oven and a curated menu fusing traditional dishes with a modern twist. The hotel’s Chinese fine dining restaurant will showcase a range of storied Diaoyutai cuisines, while a rooftop bar will provide stunning river views accompanied by live music.
The hotel’s spa – one of the biggest in Shanghai – takes its inspiration from its sister operation in Macau, which was famously awarded five stars by Forbes.
A timetable for development and opening of the latest MGM property was not mentioned in a Tuesday press release.
Diaoyutai MGM Hospitality currently operates five hotels and three branded residences under various brands of Diaoyutai, MGM, Bellagio by MGM, Mhub by MGM and Diaoyutai MGM Residences in strategic locations throughout China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Sanya and Haikou. With even more landmark hotels set to open soon in Qingdao, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Shanghai, Wuhan and other cities, the signing will further solidify the company’s footprint across China.
