On November 26, 2015, URBN Hotel Shanghai was awarded “Best Green Hotel” by 2015 Travel Info China Best Hotel & Resort Awards in Shanghai. The awards ceremony attracted 120 attendees from a variety of resort hotels, group hotels and boutique hotels.
The URBN was awarded for being a visionary 26-room hotel, transforming a heritage factory warehouse and garden courtyard. The quiet and leafy street location enables guests to experience authentic local neighborhood life and discover the abundance of trendy independent bars and cafes in the surrounding lanes. Offering the best of both worlds, it is also just steps away from the commercial heart of Jing’an and the former French Concession.
Throughout URBN Hotel Shanghai, the streamlined design uses 100 percent locally-sourced, recycled woods and reclaimed grey bricks from old Shanghai homes giving it a warm and inviting ambience. A wall of antique suitcases salvaged from Shanghai street markets greets guests in the intimate lobby. The hotel’s carbon offset program invites guests to fill out a comment card to have a donation made in their name to the Million Tree Project, which eliminates carbon footprints.
URBN’s rooms and suites provide a modernist Zen experience for hotel guests. Rich Thai silks and luscious velvets in a charcoal and neutral palette elegantly offset the natural woods. An indulgent and tranquil sleep experience is assured thanks to signature COCO-MAT Renewal Beds by Jay Godfrey, which feature a four-layer bed system with a mattress made from 100 percent natural materials, including cactus fiber, seaweed and coconut fiber, plus 600-thread count Egyptian cotton bedding. Bathrooms are adorned with grey slate and offer natural Jay Godfrey bathroom amenities, while some rooms also feature bathtubs by the window or bedside.
Travel Info organized the awards ceremony to help showcase China’s best hotels and resorts to their readers and offer more opportunities for interaction and communication.
