Le Méridien Taipei

Jul 21, 2011

Le Méridien Taipei, the hotel group’s first Taiwan property, stands out from Xinyi district’s crowd of business hotels with its arts-oriented approach. More than 500 artworks are scattered throughout the hotel, and key cards designed by Taiwanese artist Michael Lin open the doors of the 160 guestrooms as well as the Taipei Museum of Contemporary Art. Despite a focus on style and design, room aren’t short on creature comforts: each has a Nepresso machine and an ultra-comfy Le Méridien bed, while the marble bathrooms come with sweet-smelling L’Occitane products.

The Tavernist

Occupying the 12th floor of the recently opened Kimpton Da’an hotel, restaurant-slash-bar The Tavernist offers yet another reason to venture around this district after dark.

Taihu Brewing Taiwan

Taihu might be Asia’s most progressive brewery. The bathrooms are gender neutral, for starters, and when it comes to beer, head brewer Winnie Hsu is as relentless in her devotion to quality as she is in her rejection of traditional boundaries.
