China hotels

Hotels in China have come a long way since the days when musty "friendship hotels" were, for foreigners, the only places to stay. Today, no place on earth is building hotels at the same speed as China. This frenetic expansion is increasing the range and quality of accommodations both for international business and leisure travelers and for China's fast-growing domestic travel market. Shanghai and Beijing have the most advanced hotel scenes in mainland China, with most of the international luxury chains represented (or on their way). There is also an emerging focus in those cities on design-led independent properties, such as Hotel Côté Cour S.L. and Commune. Shanghai is home to one of the highest hotels in the world (the Grand Hyatt Shanghai) and also plans to build the lowest, a luxury underground property in a former quarry, slated to open in 2010. Some of the best hotels in China are beyond the mainland, in Hong Kong and, increasingly, in its fellow Special Administrative Region, Macau. The latter is making waves with its enormous casino resorts, which aim to attract meetings and conventions, as well as the growing number of gambling-crazed Chinese. China is also developing some fine resort hotels, particularly on the island of Hainan. Cities adjacent to natural and historical attractions, such as Hangzhou, Suzhou, Lijiang, and Nanjing, are also welcoming international resort operators, and luxury hotels are springing up in previously neglected areas, such as the northern ski fields near Yabuli, and at the foot of the Great Wall.
