Andaz Xintiandi Shanghai: The Beautiful Boutique

5

The Andaz Xintiandi Shanghai Hotel Review is part of the Tahiti Triumph Trip Report. It covers the following cities:

See the Picture Preview here and see how this $60,000 trip cost $1999 here. Be sure to check out TPOL’s Map, the best feature of the blog.


Getting There: The Andaz is located in the swanky neighborhood of Xintiandi. The fastest way to get there is to take the Maglev and Uber from there. Alternatively, you could Uber all the way.


The cosmopolitan life is what the Andaz brand is all about. It’s what the W brand aspires to be but will never become. The Andaz Shanghai combines the best of all worlds by delivering an upscale experience in a great neighborhood.

I’ve only stayed at two other Andaz hotels, the one in Napa Valley and the one in San Diego. Both were great but this one is the best. First, the suite upgrade was fantastic. Next, the breakfast (though incomparable to Twelve at Henghsan) offered a wide variety of freshly prepared Western and Chinese food. Finally, the location can’t be beat. Xintiandi is a neighborhood within central Shanghai with a walking street filled with bars and restaurants. Although it’s a bit touristy, it’s still pleasant for an evening out.

The only issue I can think of is that there is so much to do and see around the hotel that I barely had a chance to enjoy it! Therefore, I will have my pictures to do the talking for me.

In Chinese, the ‘an’ in Andaz means peace. I agree.

Overall 

I would definitely recommend staying at the Andaz Xintiandi. Guests can enjoy being in the heart of the action without giving up quality.
