Shanghai, China—URBN Hotel, Shanghai’s award-winning eco-boutique hotel comes online after a series of renovations completed recently, Cachet Hotel Group announced. The new interior design reflects a Zen experience and features several modernist elements including recycled and reclaimed wood materials that are accentuated by the neutral color palette used throughout the hotel.
Fashion designer Jay Godfrey laid out the plan for the new looks. One of the most prominent new design elements of the rebranded facility is an oversized stainless steel sculptural sphere at the entrance that, according to CHG, is reflective of the brand’s passion for art and design. As part of the hotel’s close cooperation with Art+, a leading art gallery in Shanghai, URBN displays a selection of creations by established and emerging contemporary artists throughout the hotel and its penthouses.
The guestrooms are optimized for work and relaxation, offering among others an URBN signature Renewal Bed that is made entirely from natural materials, with high quality cotton sheets. The rooms also include silk and velvet upholstery throughout. All suites have been upgraded with new Mayair Technology air purification systems and eco-friendly light fixtures along with a customizable preprogrammed mood-lighting installation. Smartphone docking stations, wall mounted 46″ HD televisions with both local and international channels and in-room Nespresso coffee machines are also included.
The renovated URBN Shanghai also includes a signature Jay Godfrey designer suite. This 430-square-foot unit features black lacquer finishes, modern artwork, Tom Dixon pendant lights and an indoor-outdoor lounge 280-square-foot terrace that overlooks the hotel’s signature Courtyard space.
The property features a new fitness center, URBN fit, and it will also introduce a new ground-floor restaurant and bar in October, called the BeerGRDN.
