The 52-storey World Trade Centre building in the Chinese business city of Yiwu has become the home of a new 362-room Shangri-La hotel. The tower is the tallest structure in Zhejiang Province.
It includes commercial space, apartments and shopping, and is located in the epicentre of the city’s business district next to the world-famous Yiwu International Commodity City.
The hotel guestrooms, in a range of sizes from 48sq m, plus 136 serviced apartments, occupy levels nine to 38 of the building with far-reaching views of the sprawling Yiwu landscape.
Each room is dressed in natural colours and adorned with the Chinese Rose, the flower of Yiwu. Other features include free wi-fi, marble bathrooms with premier toiletries, executive desks and large picture windows.
A selection of suites provide a minimum of 96sq m of living space and look out on to the Yiwu River. Modern touches include Blu-ray players and tea- and coffee-making machines, and suite guests use the hotel’s Horizon Club Lounge where breakfast, refreshments and cocktails are served daily.
The hotel has more than 3,880sq m of meeting and conference facilities including a 2,000sq m pillar-less Grand Ballroom 12m high which can comfortably accommodate 1,000 guests for banquets.
