Location, location, location. The hotel is arguably the single best located hotel in Shanghai in the heart of the shopping and entertainment district that is Xintiandi and the old French Concession. 75 restaurants, bars and entertainment venues are located right outside the door while the champs Elysees of the east is in the other direction. 80% of room inventory overlooks Xintiandi.  More so, the function space at The Langham Xintiandi features floor to ceiling windows which also reveal the whole Xintiandi look in the best way. It’s a re-creation born out of the sprawls of Shikumen housing, which is the architectural symbol of Shanghai in the 20th century.  “The City’s Living -Room”, it is called and it’s the place to unwind and relax after a long day.
