Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai Hotel Review: From the moment it opened, the opulent Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai solidly established itself as an accommodation of choice. Sited in Pudong’s Harbour City, a mixed-use development on the east bank of the Huangpu River, this bastion of modern luxury offers guests a winning combination of comfort, style and service. The centralized location puts airports, the Shanghai World Financial Centre, the riverfront promenade and the city’s best attractions within easy reach, and the hotel’s 318 rooms and 44 suites serve as a lavishly restful home base (210 serviced executive apartments are also available). Accommodations offer magnificent views of the river and skyline, and all are furnished in bold, contemporary design and soothing neutral color palettes. In-room details such as high-end Frette linens, a pillow menu, 46-inch LED televisions, Illy coffee makers and soaking tubs heighten the sense of indulgence. Unwind with a workout and a full array of spa services at the fitness facility, or settle in for relaxed food and drinks at any one of the hotel’s outstanding on-site restaurants: Fifty 8° Grill, Yong Yi Ting, Zest, Qi Bar, Riviera Lounge and the Mandarin Cake Shop.
