Shanghai, China, December 6, 2016 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Following a year-long refurbishment of the former Grand Mercure Shanghai Central, the hotel was rebranded to the Pullman Shanghai Jing An. Located in the central business district, the hotel is only a three minute walk from the railway station and main metro lines with easy access to the commercial hub, shopping and entertainment district.

Featuring 288 with guestrooms and suites which enjoy floor to ceiling glass walls and city view, the rooms are furnished with a flat screen TV, modern bathroom amenities and luxurious bedding.

Corporate travellers can choose to hold their private meetings at the executive club and lounge located on 27th floor. Leisure facilities include a Fit Lounge which features a fully equipped gym, a 20-metre lap pool, yoga studio and a spa which will be opening in 2017.

“Pullman Hotels & Resorts is a cosmopolitan brand that offers hyper-connected travellers an experience that combines both efficiency and wellness. The branding of Pullman Shanghai Jing An offers discerning travellers a warm sanctuary amidst the hustle and bustle of metropolitan Shanghai with its innovative design, business, fitness and restaurant facilities,” said Michel Molliet, Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels Greater China.

In line with the launch of the Pullman Artist Playground, “The Great Spiritual Pullman" series was specially created for Pullman Shanghai Jing An by Chinese painter Qin Ming. It is the first time that Qin Ming has used the modern Gong Bi painting techniques to merge them together with traditional art expression to create live vivid images for this theme. The inspiration of “The Great Spiritual Pullman” series came from a collection of beautifully crafted Chinese style flower pots and vases. After going through a careful consideration and design, Qin Ming then created a series of the modern Gong Bi paintings based on this collection. The exhibition will be available for viewing from now until February next year at the hotel lobby.
