Luxury Hotel Twelve At Hengshan Opens In Shanghai
Twelve at Hengshan recently opened as the first five-star hotel within Shanghai’s Hengshan Road neighborhood. The area, full of history-filled plane trees imported from France in the early 20th Century, romantic avenues and low-rise buildings, is the perfect fit for the five-story rectangular building.
Twelve at Hengshan is built around an traditional Chinese “secret garden” and is finished with more than 20,000 natural terracotta tiles imported from Italy. The interior was designed by Yabu Pushelberg—who also created San Francisco’s St. Regis and Times Square’s W. New York— parallel the district’s Chinese meets contemporary design motif.
The hotel’s 171 guestrooms include large windows overlooking the secret garden and cityscape, many with private balconies. Twelve at Hengshan also features a 338 square-meter presidential suit. Rooms offer guests large marble bathrooms, complete with deep-soaking tubs and luxury bath products.
Hotel guests also have access to spa facilities, a heated indoor pool—complete with three jacuzzies— and a fitness center. Twelve at Henshan also features two signature restaurants, meeting space, a ballroom and two banquet rooms.
