The design style of Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake is traditional Chinese meets Western. The hotel’s convenient location in the West Lake historic district restricted its height and so all 81 rooms are spread across just two floors. The hotel has a white exterior and pagoda-style multi-level roof done in traditional dark tiles. The lobby is airy and filled with sunlight, as are the two restaurants; nearly all of the spaces at the Hangzhou hotel have windows so you can enjoy the view. The Balinese spa and pool are heavy on the dark, carved wood that creates a tranquil, transportive atmosphere, but the guest rooms have a more Western-style aesthetic. Despite being decorated in a neutral gray and beige palette, the rooms are bright a light. Colorful accents come from vases of fresh flowers and touches of chinoiserie, like carved wooden boxes and lamps that emit warmth.
