Iconic London Taxi Cabs Help Launch New Millennium Chengdu Hotel

When I mentioned few days ago Millennium Hotels and Resorts achieved the2009 International Hotel Group Distinguished Career Award ,the Millennium Chengdu Hotel opened up ...

After 5.12 Earth quake in Sichuan last year  ,Millennium ChengduStands up now , showing the new face and hope for Chengdu ans Sichuan  .

Here's a good trivia question: What do the Millennium Hotels at London's Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, Sloane Street in Knightsbridge and Kensington Road share with the new 360-room Millennium Hotel Chengdu?
The answer is that they all have the famous London Taxi at their front door.
The new Millennium Hotel Chengdu "will receive two new London taxis, a traditional black cab and a special Champagne-coloured cab, in time for the opening in late December 2009, as a welcome gift from our sister hotels in London," says Shaun Hammond, the hotel's General Manager.
In a short word to make sure all the travellers are awared of this special cab service , Millennium Chengdu says:  When visiting this wonderful city, don’t miss the chance to arrange a day trip to the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base, travelling in one of our exclusive London Taxis. It's a luxury not to be missed.
"The arrival of the two cabs also supports our newly launched environmental educational programme, called Millennium Green," Hammond adds, "as they use the most advanced energy-saving emission reduction technology, and are 100 per cent carbon-neutral, as we completely offset the environmental pollution caused by carbon dioxide."
As a new comer in China Hotel Industry , Millennium Hotel Chengdu, the newest 5 Star International Hotel, is centrally located in Chengdu’s sophisticated urban district and is 20 minutes away from the Shuang Liu International Airport .
Surrounded by an extensive array of restaurants, clothing boutiques and recreation facilities, this hotel features 360 elegant rooms, with views towering above Shen Xian Shu Park and is of walking distance to Tong Zi Lin Road also known as 'The European Street'. Whether you need to access to the city's premier shopping area, the new International Exhibition Center or Chengdu Hi-Tech South Park.
