The unbeatable location—practically straddling the border with Hong Kong—has made the Shangri-La a popular meeting place and a longtime landmark. Rooms are first-class, the hospitality is excellent, and there are top-notch facilities, including a gorgeous spa. What really makes Shangri-La stand out is the 360 Lounge and Restaurant, which takes up the top two floors and offers a view of Shenzhen. The Shangri-La also has a number of other excellent restaurants, making
it a good choice when all you want to do is relax.
