Built in 1990 on the site of the 1920s French Club and Cercle Sportif, the five-star Japanese-managed Okura Garden Hotel has preserved the Art Deco features of the original structure in its east lobby and grand ballroom with its gorgeous elliptical stained-glass ceiling. To the south, the sprawling lawns with the gazebo were once the strolling grounds for Mao Zedong. The Japanese-managed 34-story tower is impeccably maintained and elegant throughout. Standard rooms have been undergoing renovations in the last few years, and while a little small, are perfectly comfortable with all the modern amenities. There's even an automated heated bidet in the bathroom! Service is highly efficient.
Facilities: 5 restaurants; cafe; 3 bars; 25m (82-ft.) indoor swimming pool; 2 lighted outdoor tennis courts; health club w/Jacuzzi and sauna; concierge; tour desk; business center; salon; 24-hr. room service; same-day dry cleaning/laundry; nonsmoking rooms; executive-level rooms
