Beds in China, even at Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotels, can be painfully hard, but those at The Peninsula Shanghai are heavenly. Each bed comes with a pillow-top mattress, high-thread-count white linens, a white duvet that’s warm without being too heavy and a slate-blue bolster with a tan border on the ends. The cream tufted headboard almost reaches the ceiling. The king, queen and double beds have four fluffy pillows, while the twins come with two. With the push of a button, housekeeping will bring extra pillows and blankets to your door in less than five minutes. The beds also have reading lights in the corners that have three settings. Travelers suffering from jet lag will find it particularly hard to resist the lure of the beds. On our visit, we enjoyed one of the best nights of sleep we’ve had in ages.
