There are plenty of cheap hotels in Shanghai, but when it comes to the glamour stakes, it might be that none can beat the latest addition.
The Langham Xintiandi opened its doors officially on October 15th and the five-star luxury structure promises to offer a uniquely indulgent experience to any traveller.
With 357 guest rooms and suites – many offering panoramic views – jet-setters have plenty to choose from, but for a particularly special break, they might like to go for the Grand option.
These “exude an effortless elegance combining dark woods, chic furnishings and innovative extras … both sophisticated and stylish”, with plenty of in-room entertainment such as an iPod docking station and a 40” flat-screen TV.
In addition, the complex contains a huge ballroom, several meeting rooms and an all-day restaurant.
And those hopping off those cheap flights to Shanghai and looking to chill out are in luck – not only can they relax in this new hotel, CNN Go recently praised the metropolis for its many tranquil spots.
