Doughnuts All The Rage: China To Open New Pastry-Shaped Hotel

Featured News

It seems that doughnuts are the rage in the city of Huzhou, China, as a new doughnut-shaped hotel is slated to open in the city, near Shanghai.

Doughnuts all the rage: China to open new pastry-shaped hotelThe Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort, designed by Beijing-born architect Ma Yansong of MAD Architects, will be 27-stories tall, and arched like the aforementioned round pastry, with two floors below ground connecting the structure. It will officially open in October 2013, with a guest room rate of $400 per night.

This latest offering by the Chinese-based Sheraton hotel chain is part of an aggressive expansion planned in 2013. Sheraton will be opening 30 new hotels in the Asia Pacific region then, and four in Africa and the Middle East. Out of those, 15 alone will open in China within the year.

Without a doubt, the Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort is likely the most striking of these hotels. It features a series of layered floors creating a ring emerging from Taihu Lake’s south bank. Standing at just over 100 meters high and 116 meters wide, the hotel covers an area of 75 acres, and offers 321 rooms and villas, including 40 suites, 37 villas, presidential suites, and a total floor area of 95,000 square meters. The total project is valued at $1.5 billion. Due to its unique construction, every room in this resort will have a view of the lake, natural light, and ventilation. At night, an LED light system on the building’s exterior will display colorfully animated textures and patterns, which will be reflected on the water’s surface, making this hotel one that is hard to miss.
