Located a 3-minute walk from Yu Garden and its surrounding shops, a 5-minute walk from the Bund, and a quick taxi ride from the French Concession, this is the first top-caliber modern hotel to be situated in the old Chinese city. The signature Renaissance whimsy is apparent in the funky blue and green color-themed rooms, which are plush and come with all the expected five-star amenities. East-facing rooms have the best views of Yu Garden and Pudong. The staff is helpful and friendly. By 2009, when construction of the nearby Metro Line 10 is complete, this hotel should draw its share of tourist travelers for its more unusual location.
Facilities: 2 restaurants; 1 lounge bar; 20m (66-ft.) indoor pool; 24-hr. health club; signature spa w/Jacuzzi and sauna; concierge; business center; 24-hr. room service; babysitting; same-day dry cleaning/laundry; nonsmoking rooms; executive-level rooms
