Shanghai: Four Seasons Hotel Pudong
PUR20 four seasons pudong 2

Opened: September 2012
Go for: The views

Remember the views from the top floors of that Shanghai skyscraper that was the setting for the nail-biting combat scene in Skyfall? Some were shot from this new Four Seasons, the second of three of the hotel's properties to open in China last year and its second location in Shanghai. This glittering urban oasis in the Lujiazhui financial district, occupying floors 30 to 39 of the new 55-story 21st Century Tower, features 187 rooms that offer sweeping city views and art-filled interiors inspired by Shanghai's 1920s and '30s Art Deco period. Dinner meetings can be held in the five private dining rooms at the hotel's Shàng-Xí Cantonese restaurant. For a break, hit the Flare spa -- or your own residential-style private bar, stocked with ingredients and recipes to make the hotel's signature cocktails.

From $460
