The 344-room Songbei Shangri-La opened in Harbin on Tuesday, marking Shangri-La's second location in this fabled city of ice 18 years after the group opened the Shangri-La Hotel Harbin in 1999.
Situated on the edge of the Songhua River's north bank in the heart of Songbei's business district, the hotel is only a five-minute drive from the city's internationally renowned ice festival, the Harbin Ice and Snow World. Just 40 minutes and 30 minutes away are the international airport and Harbin West Railway Station, respectively.
The hotel is also conveniently located in a neighborhood that includes many local attractions such as the Siberian Tiger Park and Harbin Great Theatre.
"We are proud to have been part of Harbin's development as a global destination and to have welcomed travellers with Shangri-La's heart-warming hospitality for nearly two decades," said Tyson Wang, general manager of Songbei Shangri-La, Harbin. "With a second property, we look forward to unveiling new lifestyle experiences and inviting the community and international visitors to enjoy our blend of tradition and modernity in Harbin."
