China Adoptive Families to Start New Hotel Tradition in Guangzhou This Summer

The White Swan Hotel, the current hotel of choice for China adoptive families, will be undergoing an extensive renovation beginning October 2007 through December 2008. The hotel will be closed for business during this time. As a result, Children’s Hope has been investigating the best possible hotel alternative for our adoptive families during their stay in Guangzhou. From the many suitable hotels in the area, Children’s Hope chose the Westin Guangzhou which will provide for our families’ unique needs during the finalization of their adoption, for a reasonable price.

This five-star hotel, near the U.S. consulate, is brand new and set to open May 2007. Our travel department in China has negotiated the new contract for our families, which includes the top amenities and features requested by our adoptive parents.

We understand our families’ disappointment in the loss of the White Swan, which has been a tradition for adoptive families since the beginning of Chinese adoptions. It is our hope, however to create a new tradition at the Westin.

One tradition that will remain the same: ‘Going Home’ Barbie. She will be traveling to the Westin, along with other gift options: baby bathrobe or Westin Pillow with Gotcha date. Additional parent advantages are the provided Westin Heavenly Crib, diapers for the first day, Heavenly Baby Bath including plastic tub, baby shampoo, baby oil and toys, and baby strollers for rent.

Four bottles of water are provided daily to each family during their stay, and the hotel water is potable as well. The Westin also offers 22 executive suites comprised of 2 bedrooms, 2 ½ bathrooms and a living space.

The Westin Hotel Guangzhou is located at 6 Lin He Zhong Road in the Tian He District in Guangzhou, Guangdong 510610 China. Become acquainted with the Westin by viewing their web site at

Children’s Hope will provide a tour to Shaiman Island for our families to shop and visit this special and wonderful area.

(The White Swan will be reevaluated when it reopens for business in December 2008.)
