Conrad to open Shanghai property

7 Sep 2008 by Mark Caswell

Hilton Hotel’s
luxury Conrad brand will open its first property in mainland China at the end
of this year.

The 24-storey Conrad
Shanghai is located in the Xintiandi area of the city, and will feature 362
rooms, all with 42-inch flatscreen TVs and open plan bathrooms with rain
showers.

The hotel’s striking
curved-glass exterior has been designed using “window wall patterns” in Chinese granite, based on
traditional Chinese latticework from the Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD).

There are
a total of six restaurants and bars to choose from, including the all-day
dining Darling Downs, featuring a show kitchen and serving modern Australian
cuisine, and Wabi Sabi, with a sushi and sashimi counter and Japanese grill.

For
meetings there are nine functions rooms catering for between eight and 170
delegates, plus a ballroom accommodating up to 600 guests. The wellness zone
includes Qin Spa, as well as a gym and indoor pool.

The Conrad
Shanghai is due to open this December, and will join the brand’s other Asian
properties in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore, Bangkok
and The Maldives.
