Okura Garden Hotel (Huāyuán fàndiàn) Review

A parklike setting in the heart of the Former French Concession makes this 33-story tower a favorite retreat, especially among Japanese travelers familiar with the Okura name. The first three floors, which were once old Shanghai's French Club, have been restored, with cascading chandeliers, colorful frescoes, and period-perfect details at every turn. The romantic third-floor terrace bar overlooks the two-acre garden, and the Japanese and French restaurants serve excellent but high-priced food. The standard rooms are simply furnished with silk wallpaper and European-style furniture; unlike deluxe rooms and suites, they lack flat-screen TVs. For those who want to stay connected, cell phones are available for rent.
