Shangri-La arrives in Hefei, the timeless & ancient capital of Anhui Province

Hong Kong-based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts announced the opening of its latest hotel in China in Hefei, a city founded as a county seat in the Qin Dynasty between China’s largest river, the Yangtze River, and the freshwater Chaohu Lake.

 Built to complement the striking structures, which form the modern skyline of Hefei, the 27-storey Shangri-La hotel is centrally located on Suixi Road and to both the commercial area and leisure attractions. A new landmark in the city, Shangri-La Hotel, Hefei brings the group’s famous hospitality from the heart to Anhui province that is over 2,200 years old and home to the Huangshan Mountain Range – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

In addition, the hotel offers the brand’s guest-centred technology of free Wi-Fi in the property and its limousines and paperless check-in, while establishing a destination for the community to appreciate design elements and culinary creations inspired by the local Hui culture. Welcoming guests are 401 guestrooms that afford expansive views of the urban landscape and range in size from 45 to 135 square metres. Full-length windows and elegant landscape features – namely mountains, flowers and streaming rivers – found typically in Chinese paintings, are fused with the room interior of soft beige tones. A well-appointed bathroom and large desk space enhance the convenience to entertain or enjoy the space at leisure.
