The Peninsula Shanghai has a wide selection of accommodations, and the average price of a room varies based on the size and season. Between March and May, and then again from September to the middle of November, the city’s weather is at its best. Not coincidentally, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel has its highest occupancy rate, and thus, its highest room rate, during this time. Usually, rooms start at RMB2,300 (US$360) a night, excluding a 15 percent service charge. The lavish suites start at RMB5,200 (US$820) and go up to RMB8,612 (US$1,360), also exclusive of the Shanghai hotel’s standard 15 percent service fee.
