Accor has announced the opening of Sofitel Hangzhou Yingguan, presenting a combination of the artful spirit, heritage and culture beholden to the city of Hangzhou. Situated along the south bank of Qiantang River, the hotel features 580 well-appointed guest rooms and suites, all offering the signature Sofitel MyBed™ experience, city and park views, and a smart control system. Chic French details are blended with Zhejiang province’s cultural elements, exemplified in design motifs on silk, embroidery and seal carvings throughout the hotel. Baguettes is a specialized Cantonese-style restaurant with a French flair. Terroir is the hotel’s Chinese restaurant, presenting seasonal Hangzhou and Xiaoshan specialties alongside local tea culture. Wellness seekers are pampered in the Sofitel SPA, a relaxing swim in the 25 meter long swimming pool or an invigorating workout in Sofitel Fitness spin room, yoga room or gym.
