Fodor's Expert Review Sofitel Hangzhou Westlake

333 Xihu Dadao, Hangzhou, Zhejiang Sheng, 310002, China

Thoughtfully designed rooms—with sleek desks, soothing beige palettes, and big bathrooms—and a distinctive lobby with grand columns and gauzy curtains distinguish this hotel, which is set amid a lively neighborhood just a block north of West Lake's Orioles Singing in the Willows. A Roman-style pool overcomes its drab basement location, and there is a lovely terrace on the sixth floor with views of the lake.
