Twelve at Hengshan Debuts in Shanghai in November

Twelve at Hengshan, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Shanghai

Hot on the heels of the Four Seasons Pudong, Starwood’s Luxury Collection will debut a new hotel in Shanghai on November 29, 2012. Twelve at Hengshan will be the only five-star hotel located in the former French Concession, a historic district filled with restaurants and bars. Hengshan Road itself is lined with art deco buildings and plane trees.

Designed by Italian architect Mario Botta, the five-storey building is defined by its central courtyard garden. On the outside, 20,000 terracotta tiles dress the façade. Inside, there are two restaurants, a health club, spa, indoor pool, and 171 light-filled guest rooms decorated by Yabu Pushelberg. Suites come with Hermes bath products.
