689, Sec. 2, Taiwan Boulevard, Xitun Dist.
The extensive construction that has
been going on at The Landis Hotel for the past several
months has been cleared away to reveal a much-improved,
expanded hotel. Most immediately visible is a redecorated,
much larger lobby with walls seamlessly flowing into
floors and glass walls that wrap around the hotel bakery.
Upstairs is the new Barcode lounge bar (see Nov. "What's
New" article). Downstairs banquet rooms have also
been enlarged and improved to accomodate up to 580 people
with attractive new ceilings and lighting and audio-visual
equipment. Most significantly, though, are the hotel's
66 all-new guestrooms that showcase The Landis' new
"city resort" concept. Each floor offers a
number of wonderfully eclectic room styles that are
all luxurious and spacious, with striking new architecture
that utilizes natural light, large amounts of wood,
extra-large bathrooms (some with great tubside window
views) and other unique amenities. According to management,
the variety of new rooms alone will help insure that
guests enjoy a different experience each time they visit.
Last but not least, the hotel is offering a new foot-massage
spa in its adjacent Mandara Club.
