Four Seasons opened its eighth hotel in China. The Four Seasons Hotel Shenzhen features a contemporary, light-filled tower with a 6th level reception that overlooks green spaces and water courtyards with panoramic views of the city.
Each of 266 light-filled rooms and suites feature technological conveniences and thoughtful comforts such a pillow menu. Mini iPads present the guest directory, and rooms also offer Nespresso machines, multiple international electrical outlets at bedside and throughout the space, large flat screen tvs with VGA connection for laptops, and more. For the traveller on the clock, the 15-Minute room service menu is available.
Colourful contemporary art and traditional Chinese motifs of good fortune are in every room, including hand-painted headboards of Auspicious Clouds, a theme repeated in the carpeting. Some offer luxurious soaking baths with sweeping city views.
“Each design detail is unique to this hotel – but it’s our renowned Four Seasons service that truly sets us apart,” says Arthur WC Ho, General Manager.
“Whether an international traveller arriving for the first time or a local dropping by to have a drink with friends, the warmth and hospitality they will feel will surely bring them back to Four Seasons Hotel Shenzhen again and again.” Ho added.
Four Seasons Hotel Shenzhen takes a modern approach to business with myriad innovations in its naturally lit event spaces, such as IBM work tables and flexible do-it-yourself meal options. Two large spaces include the 6th floor Four Seasons
