Tianjin, China — Jan. 18, 2016 — The new Dongguan Huijing Hilton Hotel now under construction in Guangdong, South China, will feature 26 Otis elevators and escalators supplied by Otis Elevator China Co., Ltd. (“Otis China”), including high-speed Skyrise and Gen2 elevators.
Upon completion in 2017, the hotel will be the largest Hilton hotel in Asia in terms of the number of guest rooms.
Developed by Dongguan Huijing Group and managed by Hilton Group, the Dongguan Huijing Hilton will cover an area of 270,000 square meters with a five-star hotel, serviced apartments, and high-end mixed office and retail space.
Its location in Houjie, a destination in the Pearl River Delta, positions it well to serve business travelers and visitors.
The Otis elevators and escalators selected for the new complex incorporate a number of innovative technologies.
