Marriott to Debut Dual-Branded Properties in Suzhou, China

Marriott International has signed an agreement with China Central Place, Suzhou to bring The Ritz-Carlton and Marriott Executive Apartments brands to Suzhou. The two complex properties are likely to open at the end of 2024 and in the middle of 2025, respectively.

Suzhou is home to a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, such as the Lingering Garden, Tiger Hill and Humble Administrator’s Garden. All are located in close proximity to China Central Place, a newly built, mixed-use development that will bring together hotels, residences, retail and offices.

Designed by Remedios Studio, The Ritz-Carlton, Suzhou is expected to open in December 2024. The hotel plans to offer 190 guestrooms and suites, besides a range of dining options, including a specialty restaurant with an open kitchen, a Chinese restaurant, a destination bar and a lobby lounge. Other facilities include an indoor swimming pool, a fitness center and signature spa with four treatment rooms. Additionally, the hotel is expected to offer 7,911 square feet of conference and event facilities, including a 5,468-square-foot ballroom.

Set to open in June 2025, Marriott Executive Apartments Suzhou aims to meet travelers’ long-stay lodging needs by providing an elevated serviced apartment experience. The new property is anticipated to feature 270 residential apartments. It is slated to feature one- and two-bedroom apartments with separate sleeping, living and working areas. Additional planned facilities include a 333-square-foot meeting room, as well as the Residents Lounge, a cozy space that serves breakfast and evening cocktails, allowing guests to work, socialize and unwind.

In Suzhou, Marriott International currently operates 15 hotels across eight brands, including W Hotels, Marriott Hotels, Renaissance Hotels, Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts, Four Points by Sheraton, Element by Westin, Courtyard by Marriott and Fairfield by Marriott.
