The private guesthouse industry is also rising to challenge traditional hotels. These factors are prompting the hotel alliance toward innovation and reform.
Each member group will leverage the strategic alliance to share resources and complement each other to eventually achieve win-win solutions for all parties.
The alliance currently has almost 300 mid- to high-range hotels (including hotels under construction) in China’s major business and tourism destinations as well as overseas cities. Member hotels have a total of 80,000 rooms and over two million mid- to high-end loyalty members. It will strive to meet the increasingly varied and individualized tourism and corporate travel needs of its members and create a hotel industry ecosystem.(Translation by David)
