Style & personality
Guests pass through the entry gate, flanked by enormous bronze dragons, right into a leafy courtyard and the hotel’s warmly ornamental inside. A keen sense of distance warms the hotel, in the lobby climbing up through five storeys, decorated with Li Yongfei’s Shan Shui Mountainscape with calligraphy over it by Ma Tianbo, to the open-plan flats in many of the six dining outlets. The suites and rooms are spacious and there is a Rosewood Sense Spa. From corridors and lifts, on bedroom shelves and walls, guests are surrounded by a mixture of ethnic props, from duplicates of Chinese antique The Dream of a Red Chamber to classic, contemporary vases constituting the Martial Arts and cloisonné paintings symbolizing the yong and yang constellation.
