The Langham Xintiandi in Shanghai has just unveiled 23 suites, completing the opening of the hotel which has taken place in stages since the end of last year.
There are 18 two-room parlour suites with flat-screen televisions in both rooms, along with a marble bathroom with separate rain shower and oversized bath. The suites all include a spacious work desk, a feature that serves the needs of business travellers.
There are also three Langham Suites, each featuring 90 sqm of floor space and designed with an emphasis on luxury. There are separate living area and lounge, along with a large marble bathroom that has a walk-in shower and separate sunken bath.
The hotel’s highest floor, level 28, houses the super-posh Chairman and Presidential Suites which are served from ground floor parking by their own private elevator to offer guests additional privacy.
The Chairman Suite has two floors connected by a light bamboo atrium with a two-storey glass wall on one side offering a stunning view of Shanghai. The lower floor has a lounge with Bang & Olufsen surround-sound stereo and television, together with a separate dining room and kitchen. The upper floor has a bedroom with outdoor terrace and Jacuzzi. The suite costs RMB6000 (US$940) a night.
