The Langham Yangtze Boutique hotel will open its doors in Shanghai next month, offering travellers the chance to experience the glamour of the ‘golden age’ of Shanghai in an art deco-themed property in the heart of the city.
The hotel lies in an area known as ‘Old Shanghai’, a Parisian-like enclave featuring alleyway temples, classical Chinese gardens and well-preserved examples of gothic, neo-classical and art deco architecture.
“The golden age of Old Shanghai was the time to taste and experience the latest and the best the city had to offer,” said Langham director for public relations, Ainslie Cheung. “[It] is a city of stunning contrasts, where visitors can go from sipping a cocktail at a designer bar, to eating dumplings at a street mall. Summer is hot and sultry and winter can get quite cold, but Shanghai never stops.”
The Langham Yangtze offers rooms and suites combining old-world splendour with technological sophistication as well as broadband access; two restaurants, the Cantonese-styled T’and Court and the Italian-styled Ciao Dining Room; and a Chuan Spa offering traditional Chinese and Western therapies and featuring infinity bathes, steam showers, body spray, wet and dry saunas and private treatment rooms.
The Langham Yangtze is offering a range of special introductory rates from $400 per night, and accommodation of spa packages for two from $680 per night.
