Marriott International has announced the highly-anticipated opening of JW Marriott Hotel Shanghai Fengxian, marking the historic 50th Marriott International hotel to open in Shanghai.
Located on Hangzhou Bay in the city’s Fengxian seaside district, just an hour’s drive south of metropolitan Shanghai, the new hotel promises to be a sophisticated and luxurious sanctuary, as well as a convenient gateway to Shanghai and nearby cities such as Hangzhou and Suzhou.
Designed by international design company, PLD, the hotel’s style narrative is inspired by its natural surroundings, with its exterior imagined as the legendary bird Roc, from the fable of “Roc hopping into the sea”. The interior is awash with natural materials, such as wood and marble in undulating, curvilinear forms to reflect the waves of the nearby East Sea.
