Parkyard Shanghai is a 4-star business hotel that offers 300 guestrooms and 60 extended-stay suites organized around a series of garden courtyards that recall attributes of traditional Chinese palace architecture and courtyards. Amenities include a gracious lobby, light-filled public areas, garden courtyards, banquet and meeting rooms, a restaurant, a spa, and a fitness center with a 25m indoor lap-pool.
Business hotel environments typically offer guests little relationship to the outdoors. The Parkyard Shanghai provides an alternative environment. With low-rise guestroom wings oriented to a park and landscaped courtyards, the hotel and grounds create an indoor-outdoor garden oasis away from the pressures of business pursuits, as well as the congestion of the surrounding urban environment.
