Stylish Hotels in China
China’s rapid economic growth brought with it an increased demand in luxury wares but also in high-end accommodation options. Consequently, the country is now filled with luxury hotels that offer sublime housing arrangements and amenities, but that’s not always enough for a sophisticated traveler, especially when it comes to art and decoration. Therefore, many of China’s hotels boast some of the most incredible, sophisticated and creative decor elements that give them an edge against their competition. Here are three of the artiest hotels in China:
1. W Hong Kong
The W Hong Kong was decorated extensively using modern works of art that give off a sense of sophisticated modernism. Many of the sublime artworks that adorn the interiors of this lavish establishment are unique and original, including a stunning Jennifer Steinkamp video art piece placed at the reception as well as an exquisite display of moving floral images inspired by the hair of Rapunzel. Furthermore, guests might also be impressed to see an outstanding digitalized Mona Lisa that was signed by Lee Lee Nam. All in all, the W Hong Kong is definitely one of the most tasteful and generously decorated hotels in the country.
2. Four Seasons Beijing
The Four Seasons Beijing is half-art gallery half hotel, since all of its halls and living areas have been decorated extensively with high-end works of art that are brimming with elegance and beauty. Once inside, guests are greeted at the reception by a stunning gestural painting named “Landscape of Desires No. 4 & 5″, which was signed by Qin Feng. Moreover, the main atrium is adorned with 400 stainless steel butterflies that soar towards the hotel’s skylight, while the executive club lounge found on the 26th floor boasts an amazing golden unicorn skull dubbed “Discovery” by its creator, Gao Weigang.
3. Park Hyatt Shanghai
As one of the most incredible hotels in Shanghai, the Park Hyatt crushes its competitors when it comes to luxury and artistic value. The experts charged with decorating this grand hotel drew inspiration from a Pop Art piece named “Standardisation Age”, which parodies the famous kowtow bow performed by the service staff.
Furthermore, the roof of the hotel boasts incredible white plastic pieces that are called “Daily Fragments”. These pieces were arranged by a Chinese artist named Liu Jianhua, who hopes that they will make guests “think of their happiest times and happiest places”.
