One must pay for their pleasure in this world, but if you accept that proposition, then The Peninsula in Shanghai is simply one of the best. The location is feet off the Bund, a wonderful river front boardwalk that is an iconic part of Shanghai. The hotel borders the old garden for the British consulate, so you may be surrounded by 21 million Shanghainese, but this remains an idyll of peace. The service is earnest and attentive. The rooms are modern and well designed, with clever use of technology that doesn't require a user manual or a 15 year old to translate. I didn't have a dinner on property but room service for breakfast was on the spot in terms of time and quality. The fitness center is on the third floor overlooking the garden, and has all of the bells and whistles,
. There is alot to love here, so if you are looking for an island of luxury and comfort in the heart of one of the worlds most energized and exciting cities, it is going to be tough to top The Peninsula!
