Popular with travelers on an expense account, this centrally located hotel—part of the office-heavy Bund Center—is just a short walk from the swish restaurants and nightlife of the Bund. The glitzy atrium lobby features a neon-lit glass staircase and artificial palm trees, while the 570 rooms are kitted out in earth tones, with polished wood paneling and rain forest showerheads in the dark granite bathrooms. A new wing, the Grand Tower, opened in 2007; formerly serviced apartments, rooms here are more spacious, albeit pricier, than in the main building. With so many business travelers passing through the halls, service can feel a bit impersonal and corporate—front desk clerks eagerly push upgrades at check-in. There are three restaurants—we liked the wood-fired pizzas at Prego better than The Stage's buffet—as well as a fitness center, swimming pool, and branch of the Banyan Tree spa.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
Resembling a throne, this property has two tower wings filled with "jaw-dropping expanses of light and color" and an illuminated crown on top. The contemporary decor includes earthy tones in one tower, darker wood tones in the other, and "absolutely gorgeous flower arrangements throughout." Bathrooms have "a truly incredible sink that glows—no kidding." For sunset drinks, head to Niche. Expect "excellent service."
