Design aficionados will toast the opening of Sofitel Foshan in China’s biggest furniture exhibition mall – Lecong in Shunde – in Guangdong Province. The hotel connects to the 200,000 square-metre Louvre International Exhibition Centre, and is AccorHotels’ first property in Foshan and its 23rd in China.

“It gives us great opportunity to partner with Guangdong Louvre Furnishings Group,” says Michel Molliet, chief operating officer of AccorHotels Greater China. “With a long history of fine ceramic production, Foshan has morphed into a furniture and accessories hub. The city’s enriched culture blends perfectly with Sofitel’s design and architecture.”
