[photopress:Langham_Shanghai.jpg,full,alignright]The Langham Yangtze Boutique, Shanghai will be located in the heart of Shanghai’s central business district, a stone’s throw from The People’s Square and adjacent to Nanjing Road.
This is a small luxury hotel originally designed in art deco and neo-classic architecture in the 1930s by architect Li Pan and was once named ‘The Third Largest Hotel in the Far East’. Difficult to see, considering its size, how it could claim the title even then but hotels were never sticklers for the precise truth with such claims.
The renovation will stay true to the art deco style in its renovation so that the hotel can re-open in mid-2008 as Shanghai’s only five-star art deco boutique hotel.
There will be 101 rooms and suites, including Chuan Residences which are directly connected to the signature Chuan Spa. Step out of bed and have a quick spa to start the day. There will be treatments based on traditional Chinese medicine philosophy so you should start the day on the right note.
There will be five restaurants and, for meeting, the rooftop column-free Star Room which will hold 250 persons for meetings. Which makes this a modified MICE hotel. But a MICE hotel with a unique style.
