Hotels in China

One of the most aesthetically dramatic properties in China, the Commune by the Great Wall has lodgings created by some of Asia’s best contemporary architects—set right alongside the most stupendous building project of the ancient world.

China isn’t exactly known for sustainability, but the new Urbn Hotels & Resorts group aims to change that.

One of four hotels attached to the posh Pacific Place shopping mall (on the edge of Central where it segues into Wan Chai), the soaring, 56-story Shangri-La has the city’s highest-altitude lodgings.

The 78 guest rooms overlook the historic West Lake and feature hand-painted silk panels and such high-tech touches as plasma TV's.
