Fodor's Expert Review Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake

5 Lingyin Lu, Hangzhou, Zhejiang Sheng, 310000, China

Under a pagoda-style roof, contemporary Chinese decor and modern amenities combine with superlative service to create a luxurious retreat with plush, spacious rooms—some with private terraces that have excellent views, all with bathrooms that have soaking tubs and separate showers. Dizzying corridors lead to the opulent Jin Sha Chinese restaurant, where garden lagoon views complement tasty dishes such as Hangzhou-style braised fish maw with goose web in abalone sauce.
