Why Stay At Les Suites Orient
Shanghai's Les Suites Orient is ideal for easy access to Bund neighborhood bars and shops, as well as for classic views of the Pudong skyline.
In the iconic Shanghai neighborhood known as the Bund, Les Suites Orient is a minimalist escape—a hotel that's both smaller in scale (just 125 rooms and 43 suites) and infinitely more understated than its flashy neighbors. The result: a seemingly insulated respite from the Bund's vibrant hustle. Rooms are muted (Art Deco touches here; a modular couch there) and up-to-date—we loved how LCD monitors in the bathroom mirrors display the local time and weather in English. In the dizzying, sometimes disorienting city, we were especially pleased with the all-day coffee, tea, and fruit service at the third-floor Le Lounge and the views of Huangpu River, best seen from oversize windows on the hotel's eastern side.
In search of peace and quiet? Head down to the ninth-floor meditation platform, which is perfect for yoga.
Grab a hotel-issued cell phone; a concierge is always at-the-ready for directions or translation service.
Arrive at Shanghai International Airport (SHA) which is approximately 6 miles from the hotel. Anticipate between 15 and 30 minutes of travel time depending on travel time. You may also choose to arrive at Pudong International Airport (PVG) which is approximately 30 miles from the hotel. Anticipate between 40 and 60 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.1 Jinling East Road, Shanghai, China

Why We Love Shanghai
Stroll the riverfront promenade known as the Bund, with its Art Deco, Neoclassical, and Beaux-Arts façades, bars and shops, and views of the space-age towers of Pudong.
17 Guang Dong Rd.
Best Day Trip: Accessible by car, public transport, and hydrofoil, Chongming Island is where locals and travelers go to escape the hustle. Dongtan, a wetland park on the eastern tip of the island, is a birdwatcher's dream with 300 species, including heron and hooded cranes that can be seen year round.
Where to Drink: Alchemy, helmed by Australian mixologist Ryan Noreiks, is the place for inventive cocktails such as the Common Cure—a warm drink mixed with Johnny Walker Black, tobacco, honey, and burnt chamomile froth.
45 Sinan Rd.
Drinks for two $22.
Where to Eat: Rupert Murdoch and Jude Law have been known to stop in at M on the Bund for a modern European menu that incorporates fresh fruit. The roasted veal shoulder, for example, is followed by a burnt-honey parfait with raspberry coulis.
7/F, No. 5 The Bund.
Dinner for two $80.
