The Langham, Shanghai, Xintiandi

East meets West in Shanghai
Step into The Langham, Shanghai, Xintiandi — the second Langham hotel in the city — and you’ll get a whiff of a sweet ginger flower scent, which is spritzed in the public areas (if you really like it, the lobby signature shop sells it bottled).

The 357 well-appointed rooms smell just as sweet, and they have have luxurious appointments.

The hotel’s location is perfect for sightseeing, within walking distance of major tourist attractions and directly across the street from the pedestrian-only Xintiandi, an area filled with chic shops and upscale restaurants housed in traditional shikumen housing.
