Hilton has opened the Conrad Hangzhou, a 50-story, 324-room hotel that also has the tallest restaurant in Hangzhou, the Li'An restaurant, which is located on the 50th floor. The property is located in the Qianjiang New Town Central Business District.
Designed by Dutch architect UN Studio, the hotel has two distinct towers, each soaring 50 stories high. The curvature of the exterior was inspired by Hangzhou's tidal bore, a natural phenomenon of rapid rising tides that occurs once a year.
Inside the hotel, the design was inspired by “Lunar Corona,” conceptualized by drawing inspirations from the nearby UNESCO World Heritage site, West Lake, a historic, garden style park. The “Lunar Corona” theme is brought to life with spacious décor featured throughout the hotel’s lobbies, lounges and guestrooms. Meanwhile, the banquet spaces were designed to reflect sunset over the lake, while the meeting area reflects mountains on the water.
Conrad Hangzhou has 324 guestrooms, including 25 suites with panoramic views overlooking Qiantang River and the West Lake.
Conrad Hangzhou has three restaurants and a lobby lounge with panoramic views of the city. Traditional meets modern at Li'An restaurant; while Blue Willow – an upscale all-day brasserie with live stations – was inspired by the weeping willows of the West Lake. Meanwhile, Uka has a sushi bar and Teppanyaki station.
Amenities at the property include a 24-hour fitness center with Life Fitness equipment and free weights, heated indoor pool and whirlpool, a spa with seven treatment rooms and two couples rooms.
For events, Conrad Hangzhou has a total of 1,604 square meters (17,265 square feet) of meeting space. The pillar-less Grand Ballroom, measuring 800 square meters (8,611 square feet), can accommodate up to 650 guests in a theater setting. The eight flexible meeting rooms have audio-visual and technical facilities, and views over the city.
Conrad Hangzhou is located at 228 Xinye Road, Jianggan District, Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China, approximately 20 kilometers from Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport.
