The Four Seasons Hotel in Pudong will close up its 187 rooms on May 15 — next month — and the company will also pull out of the Four Seasons Place Pudong, according to an internal announcement today that has been reported elsewhere. The note, which appears to come from Rainer Stampfer, President of Operations for Asia Pacific, says that although terms of the pull-out are confidential, it had nothing to do with the coronavirus. Hmmmmm. The building itself, owned by The Shanghai 21st Century Hotel Co Ltd, obviously remains; it just won't be a Four Seasons anymore come this summer. Four Seasons Pudong opened in 2012. The company will remain in Shanghai with its original location in Puxi, which they intend to put under an "extensive renovation program" beginning in June. Hard times for the hotel industry.
