Andaz Brand Gets Its First Hotel in Asia

News Hyatt Hotels Corp. has made a debut on Asian market with its Andaz brand. A hotel in Shanghai is located in a newly constructed 28-story building. Andaz specializes in upscale boutique hotels and is targeted at modern travellers.

Andaz hotel in Shanghai is located in Xintiandi – a district in the center of Shanghai mostly dedicated to entertainments. The area near the hotel is close to the former French Concession, so visitors will find here ancient buildings, antique walls and house facades, as well as traditional Shanghai houses with stone gates – shikumen.

The hotel has 307 guestrooms of different size. The smallest guestroom is 80 sq. m. (850 sq. ft.), while the largest one is 193 sq. m. (2,000 sq. ft.). All rooms feature panoramic views of Xintiandi neighborhood.

According to Joshua Chaiken, the principal of Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, the firm, which has been responsible for the hotel’s design, they have tried to combine old and new. Many elements in this hotel, such as low-rise podiums or gray stone cladding, remind of the history of this place. At the same time this hotel is a modern place equipped with high-end amenities and it reflects this cosmopolitan city.

Guests of this hotel are offered to swim in a fantastic translucent indoor pool, which seems to glow due to internal LED lighting. A 24-hour fitness center already works, and a spa will start operating a bit later. Dining options include a restaurant that mostly serves dishes from the local food, a patisserie with large choice of food influenced by the French cuisine, and a lounge. Business-oriented facilities include a large ballroom and three meeting rooms.
