InterContinental is bringing its distinctive luxury touch to more and more locations across the Asia Pacific region, with 30 new hotels scheduled to open within the next three years. One of the most anticipated debuts is the InterContinental Hanoi Landmark, which will be Vietnam's tallest hotel when it opens in 2011 in the 70-storey Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower. Like the new InterContinental Westlake Hanoi overlooking the 800-year-old Golden Lotus Pagoda on Hanoi's largest lake, the InterContinental Hanoi Landmark is bound to make waves on the luxury hotel scene with its stylish amenities and first-class service. The Westlake was named to Condé Nast Traveler's prestigious 2008 Hot List for its "sublime waterfront locale," and it seems likely that the InterContinental Hanoi Landmark will also land on the list for its resort-style pool, fitness club, and panoramic city views from the atrium lobby located on the 60th floor. The new hotel will join the ranks of the world's tallest hotels, including the InterContinental Doha West Bay in Qatar (scheduled for 2009) and the InterContinental Nanjing in China (slated for 2010).
With all the talk of smog-clouded skies in Beijing and factories sprouting up like weeds, it's nice to see a new(ish) line of carbon-neutral, boutique hotels in China. URBN Shanghai is making waves as a model for eco-design and sustainability in the hospitality sector. Named to Conde Nast Traveler's 2008 Hot List and recently cited by Fodor's Hot List, URBN was built with recycled materials and energy-saving technology. The hotel calculates its carbon footprint (including energy consumed by staff who commute, and food and bev delivery), and then purchases credits for green energy to neutralize the footprint. Guests are encouraged to buy carbon credits to offset their flights. The hotel has 26 designer rooms outfitted with all the latest technology, housed in a renovated factory just two blocks from Shanghai's high-end Nanjing Road. This is the first of what's promised to be a chain of URBN hotels across China.
