SHENZHEN, CHINA—The new Four Seasons Hotel Shenzhen located here officially opened. The hotel is located in the new downtown within just 10 minutes' drive of the Huanggang and Futian borders to Hong Kong.
“Shenzhen is a fascinating city, changing by the minute,” stated Arthur WC Ho, general manager of the eighth Four Seasons hotel to open in China. "International business travellers know it well, but increasingly, it is emerging as one of the country's most exciting leisure destinations.”
Architects Urabanus and interior designers Hirsch Bedner & Associates (HBA) have created a contemporary, light-filled tower with a sixth level reception that overlooks green spaces and water courtyards with panoramic views of the city.
Inside, each of 266 light-filled rooms and suites are spacious with 540 sq. ft. or more and packed with technological conveniences such as mini iPads, which present the guest directory. Rooms also offer Nespresso machines, multiple international electrical outlets at bedside and throughout the space, large flat screen TVs with VGA connection for laptops.
The rooms include colorful contemporary art and traditional Chinese motifs of good fortune. The rooms also feature hand-painted headboards of Auspicious Clouds, a theme repeated in the carpeting. Some rooms offer luxurious soaking baths with sweeping city views.
