Conrad Shenyang has 315 guestrooms, including 37 suites starting at 51 square meters (549 square feet). The rooms use neutral tones, textured stone and timber with bronze detailing. Every room has heated bathroom floors and towel racks—the first of its kind in the city—as well as a fully-automated washlet and a Nespresso machine.

The property's leisure amenities include spa treatment rooms, a children's playroom and a multi-function room for a series of fitness classes such as aerial yoga, aerobics, Pilates, TRX training and dance. Conrad Shenyang also has a gym, as well as a heated indoor pool and whirlpool that overlooks the city.

For dining, the property has six food and beverage venues. The restaurants and bars are located from the ground level to the top floors where diners can enjoy panoramic views.

Inspired by the Kangxi Dictionary, the restaurant Archive is designed in a library mezzanine concept, reflective of the cultural heritage of the Qing Dynasty.

Adjoining this is the lobby lounge, Gallery, where a bar resembles a tree sculpted out of polished brass. Hovering above the bar is a sculptural glass chandelier in the shape of floating pages of a book, representing the symbolic paper element of the Qing Dynasty, creating dancing lights overhead.

At Link, there is an oversized grill. Tall screens woven with timber and shimmering brass provide an intimate dining experience.

Located on the fourth floor is Chinese restaurant Man, which has an ancient Chinese garden environment composed of four architectural elements: courtyard, corridor, residence and pavilion.

Located in the wellness gallery is Fresh; while H66K (HOOK) is for guests on the go.

For events, Conrad Shenyang has 1,999 square meters (21,517 square feet) of meeting space that can accommodate up to 1,520 guests for a range of events. All function rooms have audio-visual equipment and dedicated entrances. The 1,000 square meter (10,764 square foot) grand ballroom, equipped with five projector screens and five 14,500-luman LCD screens, can host up to 500 guests, while the conference room can seat up to 200 attendees. Pre-function space is also available.

Conrad Shenyang is located at 1-1 Qing Nian Ave, Shenhe District, Shenyang, Liaoning, China.
