As the first hotel built by Chinese after the reform and open up, the International Hotel combines the national style and the times requirements together. The hexagon tower with three wings each anchored by cylindrical staircase acts as the main guestroom building. Four granite columns of the porch reminds the ornamental columns in front of the TiananmenTower. And the head of the colonnade in the podium is developed out of the traditional Xieshan roof.
