REGENT CHONGQING OPENING ON DECEMBER 23 2016
Backed by investment from the Chongqing Casin Group and managed by Regent Hotels & Resorts, the five star luxury Regent Chongqing will open its door in December 2016, which will mark the hotel brand’s second opening in Mainland China.
Regent Chongqing will offer guests it’s highly bespoke and experiential Butler Service program worthy of celebrities to make sure guests feel at home. In addition, for guests looking to tie the knot in a unique location, Regent Chongqing will offer a bespoke wedding service.
Since its establishment in 1980, Regent has been recognized for catering to the affluent and notable. This image solidified with the filming of the classic film “Pretty Woman”, starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts, at the Regent Beverly Wilshire in 1990. The brand became synonymous with the word “iconic” when the King of Pop Michael Jackson handpicked Regent Taipei as his temporary abode in Taiwan on two occasions, in 1993 and 1995. From then on, the list of celebrities who have stayed at Regent lengthened to include the likes of Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Cindy Crawford, Tom Cruise, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Elton John, Michael Jordan, Lang Lang, Sophie Marceau, Lionel Richie, Keanu Reeves, and the latest music icon Lady Gaga, whose recent stay and exclusive shopping spree at Regent Galleria re-confirmed Regent as an international luxury hotel brand.
It takes more than ultimate luxury and timeless facilities to win the approval of the stars; Regent’s bespoke service is what entices celebrities and dignitaries to return. In as early as 1990, RHR inaugurated a butler training program to provide tailor-made five-star services to satisfy the guest’s every desire, 24 hours a day. The extensive list of services includes guest preference research, room personalization, greeting at the door, no-wait check-in, laundry & pressing, room service, luggage packing & unpacking, city tours & shopping information and much more. The prerequisite for employees wishing to apply for the butler training program requires rich working experience in hospitality. Then, to actually join the program, employees must master the basic skill requirements, ace the interview, come highly recommended by their manager, and most importantly, be sincere. The six-month training curriculum entails strengthening the trainees’ language abilities and internships at the concierge, front desk, room service department, kitchens, and restaurants to gain a well-rounded knowledge of all hotel operations.
Regent Chongqing will consistently strive to perfect the highly personalised butler service to ensure guests have a stay to remember. The Regent Chongqing is currently at the countdown stage and will soon be able to take room reservations and wedding bookings.
