The uncompromising economic growth of the city, as well as a strategic location in the city center, is ideal for the debut of Le Méridien Shenyang, Heping, offering an opportunity for global travelers to unlock this dynamic destination."

By night, guests and locals can converse at the hub with Le Méridien sparkling cocktails.
Le Méridien Hub™ will further forge an art sensation experience by displaying exclusive artwork co-forged by Le Méridien Hotel and rare art from "Ai Mei Midsummer."
