Starwood Tapped for New Westin in Xian

Starwood Hotels & Resorts has been chosen to manage a 296-room Westin property scheduled to open in Xian in 2010. The Westin Xian will be part of a planned mixed-use project known as the "Great Tang All Day Mall." The hotel also will have a Heavenly Spa, five restaurants, a health club and about 11,000 square feet of meeting space. The new agreement means Starwood has seven Westin-branded hotels open or in the pipeline on China's mainland. In Xian, Starwood already operates the Sheraton Xian, which underwent renovations last year.
