With West Lake only a few steps away, this space-ship-shaped international hotel combines excellent customer service with flawless mountain, lake, and garden views. Spacious and romantic rooms feature deep purples and gold-framed mirrors. At night the exterior is illuminated with tiny white dots, making it seem as if a UFO had landed on the lake's eastern shores. Don't hesitate to ask the hotel's army of guest-service "ambassadors" questions; they know the city and can
give good insider recommendations. The hotel's authentic Thai restaurant is hands-down the best in town.
