Cool rooms designed by Super Potato. Along with the Langham, this is one of only two hotels located in Xintiandi. I prefer Andaz to the Langham. If you are more price conscious and want to remain in the XTD area, the Ascott on Huaihai road is just down the street a ways and also quite well located, although not as hip as the Andaz or the Langham.Recommended for:Trendsters

If you are not immediately won over by the multi-colored LED lights illuminating the bathtubs at the new Andaz hotel, perhaps the complimentary soft drinks and mini-fridge munchies will do it for you. (They certainly did for me.) The highly stylized public spaces of the hotel are all wood-paneling meets retro-space age. For now, the hotel shows its infancy on the one hand in its pristine facilities and on the other in its staff, some of who seem to be still in the process of figuring things out. However any such customer service blips were soon forgotten in the midst of my utter fascination with the Technicolored bathroom sinks and indoor swimming pool. The hotel shares none of the stuffiness of some of its 5-star brethren and for that, I’d say it’s worth a stay.Recommended for:Luxury Travelers

The strangeness that is the Andaz hotel is one of the most distinctive and memorable aspects of the place. And something that I was a huge fan of. The slightly space age interior design is a standout amongst the many boring business hotels in Shanghai and I found that very novel and appealing. While it may not be for everyone the Andaz is definitely a bit off the beaten track but is worth a stop by at least to see the interiors. The location of the hotel is also really nice in the Xintiandi area with lots of shopping and dining options available. The rooms are nice and the beds were super comfy but my favorite part by far was the bathroom. Both the sink and the tub were frosted glass illuminated by LED lights that changed colors (very fun) and what made it even better was that the rest of the bathroom was all unfinished stone and very natural. Crazy contrast sounds kind of tacky but was actually very cool.

The newly opened Andaz in Xintiandi seeks to revamp the hotel experience. They don’t have a reception desk, or any hidden charges, you pay your room rate, 15% service charge and the rest is included- drinks and wine downstairs, the mini bar in your room- everything. The rooms are very modern and unique. It feels like you are staying at your friends place for the weekend. The majority of the guests are here on business, but the rooms favor a circular table instead of the typical business desk. The bathrooms are exceptionally cool- carved out of rock and the only ones like that I’ve ever seen. Oh, and you can change the light around the bathtub to different colors according to your mood. The fitness area is in the basement, so it lacks the natural light of most gyms. It’s lit by blue runner lights, which give the impression that you’re underwater. Different, but I can go with it. The restaurant Hai Pai serves up Chinese and French cuisine and has ample outdoor seating for those pleasant Shanghai summer days. Every place setting at the table gets a different colored set of chopsticks. Loving the bright touches. If you’ve got a sweet tooth then beware of Éclair, the pastry shop in the lobby. Their French chef whips up chocolate, éclairs, pastries and breads galore. Seriously delicious stuff. Great location, great attitude, definitely two thumbs way up!Recommended for:Business Travelers
