"We are proud to welcome guests for a stay at those two extraordinary hotels as a perfect complement to the theme park experience when we open," said Dorian Rommel, managing director of Hotel Management at the resort. "We're confident that the two hotels will embrace a new level of theme park hospitality that is beyond-expectation, along with one-of-a-kind guest experiences and services, as well as create an ideal destination for an urban staycation."

Located right at the entrance of Universal Studios Beijing theme park, Universal Studios Grand Hotel, the world's first Universal-themed hotel, will provide expansive views of the resort and immerse guests in Hollywood's Golden Age with an embrace of the Spanish Revival aesthetic of California. The interiors are designed with contemporary graphic patterns contrasting a neutral palette, along with a collection of posters decorating the hotel interiors that showcase the vast collection of legendary Universal films from vintage classics to modern masterpieces along with behind-the-scenes photos. The hotel features 800 rooms and suites, including a few family-friendly themed rooms inspired by DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda franchise, as well as themed restaurants and a Kids' Club.

The NUO Resort Hotel, the first-ever resort hotel from NUO, one of China's first homegrown luxury hotel brands, will feature 400 spacious rooms and suites. It is inspired by the beauty of China's ancient royal gardens and designed to recreate the feeling of a private retreat and a serene oasis surrounded by picturesque gardens and set along the waterways of the resort. The interiors were inspired by a contemporary take on Chinese traditional cultural and artistic achievements, including a tearoom at the lobby lounge. It is also being equipped with modern conveniences and luxury.

The resort said the two hotels will be destinations unto themselves, besides being perfect complements to the theme park that feature seven themed lands and Universal CityWalk Beijing.

Guests staying at the two hotels will enjoy early park admission to their selected land or attractions inside Universal Studios Beijing on the day of park visitation before the theme park opens to the public with valid theme park admission via an exclusive access entrance.

Universal Beijing Resort is developed, constructed and operated by Beijing International Resort Co., Ltd., a joint venture that is 70% owned by Beijing Shouhuan Cultural Tourism Investment Co., Ltd., and 30% owned by Universal Parks & Resorts, a business unit of Comcast NBCUniversal. 

Wang Tayi, general manager of Beijing International Resort Co. Ltd., confirmed on April 16 at the 16th World Leisure Congress in Beijing's Pinggu district that the first phase of Universal Beijing Resort has been completed and will open to the public very soon. He said the second phase will be completed and start operating in 2025, and also confirmed a third phase of construction in the future.

"After that, Universal Beijing Resort will have three theme parks, two entertainment business boulevards and seven hotels, which will form a complete world-class resort," he said. He added that the resort is a major national industrial project and Beijing's largest foreign investment project in the service industry, and also an important supporting project for the cultural tourism function of Tongzhou district, the capital city's sub-center. 

"It is of great significance for expanding open cooperation, building an international consumer center city, and promoting the high-quality development of the Beijing's sub-center," Wang added.
