World's Best Hotels: The Peninsula Shanghai

Courtesy of The Peninsula

No. 35 The Peninsula Shanghai

Score: 94.18

On a stretch of the historic Bund waterfront, this 10-story granite-clad building is a Modernist reflection of its Art Deco–era neighbors. Architect David Beer and interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon delivered gleaming brass and mahogany elevators and 235 guest rooms that combine embossed glass lamps and black-lacquer screens with 21st-century amenities. All come with VoIP phones, portable master control panels, and spa tubs with music and light settings, but your most valuable asset here is Simon Huang, the savvy chief concierge.
