The Peninsula Shanghai’s beds are so cushy that you’ll have to work hard to keep your jet-lagged self from diving in the moment you arrive — but try to wait for turndown service. You’ll be rewarded with a handful of luxe touches. As part of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s turndown service, a member of the housekeeping staff will dim your lights, turn the TV on to the channel of your choice, put bottled water and glasses on your bedside table, turn down your sheets and leave out slippers on a linen mat near your bed. You’ll also find a fruit plate, a welcome snack if you’ve been out all day sightseeing or in business meetings. We returned to our room to find a silver pedestal platter with an apple, orange, pear, banana and a bunch of longans, a sweet fruit similar to lychee. To get even sleepier, request that housekeeping prepare the tub to create a residential spa environment for you. It’s a soothing before-bedtime activity.
