Longemont delivers

ENJOY a bath in the clouds after a long day of business negotiations and let your worries melt away at one of the city's most luxurious hotels, The Longemont Shanghai.

Just four years old, the hotel comes with some of the most cutting-edge technology so business can go on and deals can be made miles away from the office.

The Longemont Shanghai is relatively new compared to some hotels in the city but it shows sophistication beyond its years.

The 511 rooms get as close to the heavens as hotel rooms come - they are all above the 27th floor and are furnished in a modern, contemporary design with all the latest mod-cons, including an iPod docking station in every room.

The rooms come complete with free fruit, up-to-date newspapers, imported teas and coffee, access to the health club and wireless Internet - ideal features for the business traveler.

If you feel like getting out of your room to work, then there is the executive club suite with work stations and computers provided.

There are also nine function rooms which can cater for groups of up to 150 people, and for more informal, intimate meetings the exclusive boardroom caters for 20 people or less.

The function rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. You will find premier audio equipment including video-conferencing equipment, and a technical team is on hand to offer their assistance. There is also wireless Internet in all public areas.

Director of MICE Conny Bartl, says The Longemont Shanghai's meeting space is the largest in Puxi.

Companies can also hire out restaurant space to cater for groups of up to 400 people - a rarity in Shanghai.

It is no wonder that with features like this, The Longemont Shanghai was named best MICE by Traveller Weekly magazine.

In a city that is jam-packed, you will find plenty of space in the rooms and entertainment areas at The Longemont, so you can relax without feeling like you're crammed into a shoe box.

The rooms vary from 40 square meters for the deluxe room, to 65 square meters for a studio room and 115 square meters for the club suite. They also all have natural light - a miracle in Shanghai.

Bartl says these rooms are much bigger than rooms at some five-star hotels in Shanghai.

The Grand Ballroom, at 928 square meters, offers the biggest banquet space in Puxi. The ballroom can cater for small informal events to large scale corporate events or gala dinners.

Among the many big events The Longemont Shanghai has hosted were a 1,400-person cocktail party and a 700-person luxury brand fashion show. The ballroom can also hold up to 930 people in theater-style seating and 700 for a banquet dinner.

Wedding shows, business auctions, charity events and media press conferences can also be held at The Longemont Shanghai.

Cars have even been on display in the lobby, showing the efforts The Longemont Shanghai will go to make your event a standout success.

"We can host large-scale events and still deliver quality service," says Bartl.

The Longemont also has that most annoying task of car parking covered with more than 200 spaces available, plus another eight just for buses.

Feeling parched or wanting a little snack?

Head to cigar bar CO2 on the second floor, or grab a cool drink poolside at the 26th floor infinity pool. There's also high tea in the lobby lounge with Eastern or Western sets on offer.
