Warm sepia tones and hand-finished details provide a touch of romance and timelessness

Lake Songhua Prince Hotel has opened

Lake Songhua Prince Hotel has just opened on January 16, 2015, as a luxury hotel with its world-class ski resorts in Jilin, one of the best resort areas in China.



Shangri-La Hotel Qufu, built in Qufu, Shandong, China, was awarded an Architecture & Interior Design Award for luxury scale of Hospitality Design Award 2014 by the U.S. magazine, Hospitality Design.

Qufu, located on south Jinan which is the capital city of Shandong, is the most known as Confucius’s birthplace, as well as the place Confucianism was originated from.

This is a 5-star hotel having 480 guest rooms and a large banqueting hall with 1,600m2 with its location in the center of the city.

Notably, many historical structures built around the city, such as The Temple of Confucius and Kong Family Mansion, are in perfect harmony with other buildings in its surrounding area, making the whole scenery of the city significantly unified with Chinese traditional designs.

Thus, this hotel was also considered to be harmonized with those structures around the city. It was, therefore, necessary to adjust this huge building to the smaller scale of the townscape. Also, we made great efforts to concern not simply imitating the designs of traditional architectures but having the quality of 5-star hotels remained and traditional essence assimilated into the modern designs, which will truly captivate all who visit.
