Hyatt Hotels has announced the opening of Andaz Shanghai, introducing its lifestyle brand Andaz to Asia for the first time.
The newly constructed 28-story hotel is located in Xintiandi, an entertainment area in the heart of downtown Shanghai and a short walk to the Metro and Huai Hai Zong Road, one of the city’s main shopping areas.
The Xintiandi neighbourhood, on the edge of the former French Concession, retains the antique walls, tiles and façades of the traditional shikumen (stone-gate) houses of old Shanghai, while the interiors showcase prestigious modern brands, fashion boutiques, stylish restaurants and bars, creating a landmark destination that combines the historical and cultural identities of the city.
Inspired by dynamic and distinctive surroundings, Andaz Shanghai is devoted to providing highly personalised, uncomplicated service in an atmosphere that fully embraces the best of Shanghai and allows guests to experience it authentically.
Global in scale while local in perspective, Andaz delivers an innovative hospitality experience and attentive, uncomplicated service designed to accommodate guests’ personal preferences.
Hotels in this unique collection reflect the spirit of their locale and are dedicated to creating natural and vibrant living spaces where travellers can indulge in their own personal sense of comfort and style.
Hyatt’s Andaz brand has earned a devout following among global travellers since its introduction in 2007, and has developed a reputation for delivering opportunities for guests and neighbours to engage in creative inspiration, most recently with the launch of the Andaz Salon.
A regular series of events and discussions to be held at every Andaz hotel under the guidance of a unique event host, the Andaz Salon gives guests an experience of seeing the local scene through the eyes of leading cultural arbiters.
