InterContinental Shanghai Expo was built expressly for the 2010 World Expo, but this isn’t a one-trick hotel. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Shanghai hotel is coming into its own, with inviting outdoor villas and gardens, a smashing English pub in the form of Liquor Factory and fun art that peppers the public spaces, like the colorful brick-sized beads that decorate the lounge’s piano alcove walls and the lighting fixtures that look like clusters of white stars whose edges melded together in the gray-marble-filled lobby. But the best amenity, by far, is the hotel’s Four-Star spa. It’s so Zen, you’ll won’t want to leave.
