Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai
Condé Nast Traveler
"The 40-foot-tall lobby—part tiki bar, part Ming-style ancestral hall—has a thousand backlit Chinese characters on the walls and an LED screen on the ceiling (it displays twinkling stars and a reindeer-drawn sleigh during the Christmas season)"
"Additional dining and drinking include the Grill Room for Japanese and Australian prime steaks, J-Mix for authentic Japanese fare and sushi, Shang-High Cuisine for traditional and authentic regional Chinese food, and the Lobby Lounge for cocktails and a social hour"
"Designed by Arata Isozaki, who designed the Barcelona Olympic Stadium and Los Angeles MoMA, the Himalayas Centre won CCTV's 'Designing for China' award in 2008 – the hotel mixes traditional China with bright-lit futurism, from the changing lights on the facade to a 260sqm LED roof installation in the huge lobby"
"This property opened in March 2011 under the direction of Arata Isozaki, the mind behind the design of Barcelona’s Olympic Stadium and the Los Angeles MOCA"
"International appetites are met well in the Arte Cafe and Lounge for three meals a day, and cocktails are always available in the towering Chinese pavilion-style lobby"
