Fodor's Review

This hotel, opened in 2012, embodies the attention to service for which the Shangri-La brand is beloved while putting an art-focused twist on its traditional East-meets-West aesthetic. A stunning Chinese sculpture adorned with a flock of birds frames the entrance and, throughout the hotel, you'll find natural woods, delicate accents, and original artwork—plus sweeping city views up University Avenue and through the Entertainment District. In the hotel restaurant an Asian-inspired menu is served in a wood-crafted space that reflects the eatery's name, Bosk (it means "wooden box"), beneath hand-blown glass lights that enliven the atmosphere. The sunlight-flooded atrium lobby is an ideal place to gather with its inviting fire, nightly live entertainment, and menu of bespoke tea blends chosen by in-house tea sommeliers. Guests enjoy creative cocktails and small-plate meals at plush couches with small tables. The wellness center has work-out equipment, a saltwater pool with private cabanas, and spa treatments using the famous skin care line Caudalie of Paris.
