I want to share with you all a little secret here in Shanghai. Tucked away along the Huangpu River in the middle of the Shanghai World Expo zone is the 5-star Intercontinental Shanghai Expo hotel. I was impressed by the hotel’s service and ambiance from the moment I walked into the lobby. As the attentive staff helped to alleviate me from my baggage, I was free to explore the spacious and tasteful lobby decorations. Most noticeably is the majestic rainbow-colored carpet abstractly depicting scenes along the neighboring Huangpu River and sprawled out in the middle of the lobby floor.
It is no wonder why the 140 rooms at the Sofitel Zhongshan Golf Resort in Nanjing (the first deluxe five-star golf hotel in Nanjing), are always so full. The management’s attention to detail, such as a candle placed romantically at the side of the bath, and great service ensures that guests always feel they are the hotel’s top priority. These reasons, coupled with their widely recognized golf courses, makes this resort one of the most sought after five-star hotels in Nanjing.
