Island Shangri-La is part of Hong Kong-based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, and as such delivers a polished and formal kind of service you won’t find elsewhere. Though the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, housed in a tower rising over Pacific Place shopping center, is a favorite for business travelers, it’s also surprisingly family-friendly, with its spacious outdoor pool that’s flanked by steel and glass skyscrapers. Small touches make every guest feel at home, such as the Shangri-La bookmarks thoughtfully placed in reading materials you leave in your room and the complimentary drinks in the mini-bar. The international staff (hailing from Europe to South Korea and everywhere in between) can communicate in dozens of languages, meaning you won’t have to look far to get top-notch service.
