Twelve at Hengshan is the only five-star hotel in Shanghai's Hengshan Road neighbourhood.
Italian architect Mario Botta, whose iconic structures include the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, created the contemporary courtyard building.
The interiors are by New York-based hospitality design duo Yabu Pushelberg, who also designed the St Regis San Francisco and W New York - Times Square.
In addition to the 171 rooms, there is 1,303sqm of meeting space comprising a 425sqm Grand Ballroom, pre-function Area, two VIP banquet rooms and six meeting rooms.
The hotel also has two restaurants and a 24-hour fitness centre and swimming pool.
At the heart of the hotel, a traditional Chinese 'Secret Garden' for hotel guests creates a Zen ambience with trees and flowing streams.
