According to Chinese mythology, there isn’t a man in the moon - there’s a rabbit. If you didn’t know this cultural fact before check-in, you’ll have grasped it by the time you’ve left. There are bunnies everywhere (including three pink ones flying over reception). There’s also a profusion of peonies – on carpets, curtains and mosaic floors - plus lots of lunar-themed style references.

To contrast the raw, industrial feel, ceramic tiles create vibrant color-blocking moments with red powdercoated steel details recalling the local architecture. Clad in linen and steel, the oversized atrium chandelier is another nod to the area’s design vernacular, taking cues from the local bamboo scaffolding.

But there's none of that at the Roosevelt, whose design was overseen by Iceland-born, Los Angeles-based Gulla Jónsdóttir. The exterior takes its cue from the racecourse, with roomy balconies overlooking the track, while inside a pared-down modernism predominates. The faux garden which works its way up the wall and across the ceiling in the lobby is a good clue as to the treats in store.
