Pudong-Shangri La, Shanghai had its last room renovation in 2009. The Shanghai hotel is composed of two buildings: Grand Tower and River Wing. River Wing opened in 1998 and was renovated in 2009, while Grand Tower opened in 2005 and has not been renovated since. The design style of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is classically luxurious (i.e., ornate). This lends itself well to infrequent room renovations, as neither Grand Tower nor River Wing feels dated. Essential iPod docks are found alongside Philips LCD televisions, the carpets remain immaculate and plush, and there’s no noticeable wear and tear on any of the furniture.
