January 1, 2008 marked the historically significant event in Xiamen when the first Millennium & Copthorne (M&C) hotel arrived in Xiamen. Millennium Harbourview Hotel Xiamen became a part of the expanding prestigious business luxury hotel brand, becoming the 2nd Millennium in China for its time. It’s only sister hotel at the time was Grand Millennium Beijing, a flagship hotel of five star platinum standard. Now only two years later the ranks of M&C hotels has strengthened in China to 6 hotels, located in key cities throughout the country.
M&C owns, asset manages and/or operates more than 120 hotels in 19 countries around the world. This global business hotel chain is chaired by M&C executive chairman, Mr. Kwek Leng Beng, both of whom holds significant influence in the Asian Pacific region. Singapore alone operates 6 M&C hotels and receives high brand recognition amongst Singaporeans.
In China plans for extending available M&C properties have begun with key cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Qingdao, Chengdu, Wuxi, and Xiamen. M&C’s Mr. Kwek Leng Beng has stated his belief in the smart business travel concept’s rapid evolution and mentions a new breed of travelers whom want a distinctive hotel experience along with functional services including wireless connectivity.
The M&C Loyalty Program has now been introduced as of this year, 2010. The Loyalty Program completes the value of every stay experience by introducing exclusive gifts, special amenities, and rewards points to card holders. The membership program is offering free registration to all at the online website. Global participation in this Loyalty Program is already underway, and rewards points are already convertible at most destinations across the M&C Portfolio.
While fine facilities and amenities make up M&C hotels, it is the finest people retained by M&C that provide the services & attentive management that the international group boasts of. Without these finest caliber individuals, the exemplary service could not be provided to surpass guests’ expectations to create a new experience with every visit. Millennium & Copthorne’s expresses its position best to guests by its motto “You are the center of our world”.
