Occupying a former factory in the tree-lined Jing’An District, this sleek property uses recycled and locally sourced materials in its design, including reclaimed gray bricks from old Shanghai
houses. A wall of antique suitcases salvaged from Shanghai street markets greets guests in the lobby, while Zen rooms and suites have Thai silks, charcoal velvet upholstery, natural woods, and slate bathrooms. The custom mattresses, made with cactus fiber, seaweed, and coconut husk, are topped in 600-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets. The hotel partners with Art + Shanghai art gallery to exhibit a seasonally changing collection of works throughout the public spaces and penthouses.
