Just 130 miles north of Hong Kong, this sprawling metropolis—population more than 12 million—is China’s next boomtown. A magnet for regional entrepreneurs, Guangzhou’s attractions also include noteworthy new architecture (the Zaha Hadid–designed opera house), a thriving food scene (it’s the capital of Cantonese cuisine), and most recently, a flurry of luxury hotel openings. Among the international brands staking their claim here, Mandarin Oriental sets itself apart with alluring interiors: the 287 guest accommodations, created by star hotel designer Tony Chi, are clad in black wood, muted bronze, and mirrored chrome, while labyrinthine layouts modeled on ancient Chinese courtyard residences lend an intimate feel. Business travelers will appreciate the central location in the Tianhe district, one of China’s busiest electronics hubs, while pleasure-seekers will want to tap the street-smart concierges, who led us to the city’s best hand-pulled-noodle stalls.

Room to Book:

The Mandarin Suite, the hotel’s largest suite with stunning skyline views, a dining room for 10, and a 24-hour butler. Don't forget to call for the silk kimono.

Insider Tip:

For a taste of Guangzhou’s local character, take a stroll down one of the side streets near the hotel. You’ll find fruit stands, smartphone dealers, and Muslim eateries on some surprisingly quiet, tree-lined residential blocks—a pleasant break from the city’s throbbing commercial heart.
