What are the guest rooms like at Andaz Shanghai?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

The guest rooms at the Andaz Shanghai have a minimalist style bordering on sparse, but made warm with rich textures, playful design touches and splashes of color. Long planks of alternating dark walnut and light olive wood make up the flooring, with gray stone for the walls and structural columns that lend an industrial feel to the living space. There are several nods to the 1960s, whether it be the bubbly curved stone frames of the wall-to-wall windows that wrap around the room or the red leather reproduction of the Arne Jacobsen egg chair. Furnishings are few but sleek, with a low platform bed frame, polished wooden credenza and unfussy nightstands with master control panels in pullout drawers. A trio of yellow ethnic collages hangs on the wall, along with a riotous multicolored print in the entrance hallway and a patchwork display of silk panels forming the backdrop of the king-size bed. A 42-inch television is provided at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, along with a glass table to serve as both work and dining table. Look closely for the pseudo-philosophical messages inscribed on the table and windows: Ours read: “Love you, thus bother you.”
