Stepping into the Diaoyutai brand’s flagship hotel, one cannot help but admire the ingenuity of the design creating a mansion brimming with Chinese Spirit and International Style, grounded in Chinese philosophy and aesthetics and integrated with the local Hangzhou style. So much so that one can catch glimpses of the charm of contemporary Hangzhou on the world stage everywhere one looks. CCD led the interior design work, and the hotel lobby is inspired by the traditional courtyard house of the old downtown Beijing hutong and Hui-style architecture (the rainwater flows from the roof into the courtyard, which symbolizes wealth flowing into the house, reflecting the fengshui theory of " sishuigui tang "). As one steps further into the lobby, the ceiling, sumptuously decorated in imperial style, comes into view, spectacular and imposing. The 162 guestrooms have been tailor-made in line with the room type and layout. The visitor is wrapped up in the glamor of Jiangnan withoutlosing international perspective.
