Cordis Opens in Shanghai

Often called as the “Oriental Paris,” Shanghai’s modern ways rival that of other major capitals’ infrastructure. Adding to the city’s appeal is the newly opened Cordis Shanghai, Honqiao, located conveniently within the premises of The Hub complex. The first Cordis hotel in China, the 396-room property serves as a modern haven amid the city’s bustling atmosphere.

Each of the property’s rooms was built to make guests feel the utmost comfort. Starting from 41 square meters, each sleeping quarter is equipped with generously sized work desks and impressive JBL Bluetooth speakers for both business and leisure travelers. Cordis worked with a consultancy company to ensure that guests will only breathe clean air, a luxury in smog-filled Shanghai.

The hotel also boasts two grand ballrooms: the Shanghai Grand Ballroom and the Hongqiao Ballroom. The former is 580 square meters, while the latter occupies 440 square meters of the property, each with a capacity of over 600 people. The hotel also features “break-out rooms” that are bathed with natural sunlight fit to host small-scale events, meetings, or banquets.

For culinary enthusiasts, there are two exciting dining venues to choose from. The C Market, adorned with sculptor Xie Aige’s qipao, is the hotel’s signature buffet restaurant, where guests can choose between dining at the indoor space or at the alfresco area. There’s also Xi Wei that serves tempting contemporary Cantonese dishes. Tipples are available at rooftop bar Connection 12 and the Lobby Lounge where they’re made by talented mixologists.
