Soaring above People's Square in an angular 60-story building is this airy hotel, flooded with light from floor-to-ceiling windows. The lobby is on the 38th floor and the hotel continues 24 stories upward, so spectacular views over the city come as standard in the 342 rooms. Furnishings are Art Deco–esque, but some touches—the diamond-patterned hunter-green carpeting and rosewood paneling, for instance—feel a bit staid compared with the look of the city's newer hotels. Two lounges and three restaurants offer both Chinese and Western fare. None particularly stands out, though the 40th-floor Champagne Lounge is a good place for a nighttime drink with a view over People's Square. A spacious fitness center, indoor and outdoor pools, and a branch of the Mandara Spa tick all the boxes for modern luxury, while a central location between the Bund and French Concession wins points for convenience.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
"Within walking distance of the Bund," this geometric tower with a pointed apex has "spacious, elegant" rooms—makore-wood panels, silk-textured wallpaper, jade-colored ceramics. Since the building rises 60 stories, "all you need to do is point to the sky when directing cabbies." Order afternoon tea or cocktails in the Lobby Lounge. The indoor lap pool is flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows.
