French hotel group, AccorHotels started life in 1967, when the first Novotel hotel opened just outside Lille in France. Now it operates across the globe with accommodation reaching far beyond its native France, including Guangzhou in China. Ranging from budget city pads and corporate lodgings right up to high-end luxury resorts in far-flung destinations, AccorHotels now includes many internationally recognised brands, including budget-friendly ibis, Novotel, and upmarket Pullman and Sofitel.
Stay with AccorHotels in Guangzhou
As the capital of the Guangdong Province, Guangzhou is renowned for high finance, fast-paced commerce and Cantonese food. But you’ll also find a strong arts and culture scene. Use Expedia to find an Accor hotel that suits you, whether its near Baiyun International Airport, nearer the city centre in in Baiyun or overlooking the Zhujiang and East Rivers to the west of the city. Whichever brand you stay with, you can look forward to stylish bars and maybe upscale restaurants, swimming pools and spas.
What to See in Guangzhou
The Yuexiu District is widely regarded as Guangzhou's culture hot spot. Make your way to the 200-acre Yuexiu Park to see the Five Ram Statue. And while you’re there, explore the region’s vast history at the Guangzhou Museum in the Zhenhai Tower or visit the 2000-year-old tomb of Zhao Mo in the Mausoleum of Nanyue King, one of China's finest museums.
While you’re in Guangzhou, try some of the Cantonese food it is so famous for. The most well-known dish is dim sum, which originated here thousands of years ago. Do it the traditional way and settle in for brunch and tea at a dim-sum restaurant in Tianhe or Haizhu.
Guangzhou Luxury from Your AccorHotel
Your Sofitel or Pullman hotel will happily arrange a private night cruise along the Pearl River or even a town car to take you the 75 miles to Hong Kong for the day. You might also enjoy tickets to see the acclaimed Chimelong International Circus or take in a traditional Chinese opera at the award-winning Guangzhou Opera House. And for far-reaching views of the city's skyscrapers, hike, bus or hop on a cable car up to Maoxing Ridge on White Cloud Mountain to appreciate Guangzhou in all its glory.
