Hilton has announced that all its hotels in China have officially resumed operations. Each hotel has implemented strict anti-epidemic measures to ensure the health and safety of guests and employees, the hospitality major said.

Hilton said it has also made adjustments to policies and operations in order to meet the needs of guests and the community at large, during this time.

“Today, I am thrilled to announce that all Hilton hotels in Chinese mainland have officially resumed operations,” said Qian Jin, Area President, Hilton Greater China and Mongolia.

About 150 Hilton hotels were closed for bookings after the pandemic turned into a global crisis, but the restrictions are slowly being lifted with the reopening of the Chinese units.

“The safety and wellbeing of our guests and team members remain our highest priority and reopening all our hotels in Chinese mainland is the first step in a measured global recovery process,” said Chris Nassetta, President and CEO, Hilton.

Hilton expects that the demands for quality travel, family bonding, and consumption– which were suppressed by the epidemic – will become a driving force of consumption during recovery.

Meanwhile, the government’s introduction of a series of supporting policies and plans to promote are expected to stimulate the rapid recovery and growth of the tourism industry. Hilton will continue to actively expand its business in China, the company said.
