After 1949, Chinese hotel industry disappeared until 1978. Before the implementation of Reform and Opening Policies, Chinese people did not have the idea or definition on what is hotel industry, and at the time, the hotels were all considered as rest house or reception sites, and these places were exclusively opened to national leaders, important members of foreign governments, experts overseas. And the servants or workers in hotels were all the civil servants belonging in the governmental system. After 1978, China hotel industry has a fast development. Tourists abroad swarmed into China, and the hotel service of mainland China can not meet the demands, which negatively influences China’s international fame when persisting in the policy of reform and opening. Therefore, many departments of government rearrange the original rest houses and reception sites, and reconstruct them as the foreign-oriented hotels. Since then, Chinese hotel industry appears in history. After these reforms, Chinese hotels has got a prominent change in mechanism – the management and orientations of hotel are diversified as the further enlargement of Chinese tourism industry, many money-making hotels appeared, in the meantime, the service sense of hotel is enforced as well; the political characteristics is weakened as the time goes, and general manager’s position in management of hotels is improved and strengthened.

In 1982, the market-oriented reform firstly was implemented in hotels of Hangzhou, the traditional tourist city of China. Hangzhou Huaqiao Hotel and Hangzhou Hotel thoroughly put the position guide into practice and the workers’ salary was flexible depending on their working. This is a big leap indeed. Subsequently, Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai established the modern hotels. The department setting and the working positions of hotel get the definitely classified. In 1984, National Tourism Administration of China promoted the hotel management experience, and reformed the hotel management system and distribution system. It made a big transfer of Chinese hotels to the modernized hotel industry. In 1988, under the guideline of The State Council, National Tourism Administration pushed forward the progress of Chinese hotel industry internationalization, and started the star-ranking assessment standard in the foreign-oriented hotels. It enhanced Chinese hotel industry in the aspect of standardization, regularization and classification.

Henceforth, many international famous hotel management companies entered Chinese hotel industry and brought much valuable experience about hotel international management. At present, Chinese hotel management systems consist of three types: 1. International hotels or hotel chains, and these hotels are the best in China. 2 Sino-foreign Joint venture hotels are represented by Guangzhou White Swan Hotel and Beijing Jianguo Hotel. 3. State-owned hotels.

In 2011, China becomes the most powerful market in the world in accordance with the global half-year report of InterContinental Hotel. InterContinental Hotel has more than 154 hotels of China in service and 150 hotels under construction. Up to 2025, the number of hotels of InterContinental will surpass it in the United States.

So far, Hilton Hotel has signed more than 40 copies of management agreements in China, and most of them are in second-level and third-level cities. Marriot Hotel also signed the copies of agreements more than 100.

Secondly, the city complex and rural economic transfer will promote the hotel industry development. Currently, there are 27 provinces, districts and cities setting tourism as their pillar industry of economic development. Their adaption to tourism will bloom this industry in China. In 2011, and in a half month, Jiangyin built up Longxi International Hotel, which with a height of 328 meters, comprised of 826 rooms and 16 presidential suites at the cost of 3 billion. In 2010, the authorities received 123 copies of application for five-star hotels. 21 hotels from Guangdong province, Shanghai, Jiangsu province and Zhejiang province also occupy a majority of it.

Starwood hotels declare the program of customized travel, and require Sheraton and Westin Chains to provide a series of special service to Chinese tourists, including the new dishes and food suitable for Chinese people, as well as the slippers and electric kettles services, plus translation service. In 2011, Hilton declares the planning of Hilton Welcomes, and the branches have options to join in or not. This program asks the hotels to have a Chinese-speaking reception servant and open a Chinese TV channel, as well as serve the option of Chinese dinner and lunch, including dim sum, porridge and deep-fried dough sticks. In 2011, Marriot practice a new programme of Chinese breakfast.

Fourthly, diversity, pluralism and individuation influence on hotel industry. Since 1980s, tourists raise their interests to art, culture and history, and it directly activates a movement to resurface the old architecture to be a traditional hotels. In 1990, PhillippeStarck, a famous architect was invited to give a thorough design to Paramount Hotel in New York, and this redesign make this hotel looks more classic. In China, many unique hotels appear in accordance with the personality of designers. According to the ranking of, the characteristic hotels in China are most popular.
