As far as special amenities go, come summer, The Portman Ritz-Carlton, Shanghai is one of the few spots citywide boasting both an indoor and outdoor pool with surrounding rooftop green. Better known as Terrace Garden, this is a place where you can soak in the sun with a good book and enjoy some drinks and snacks without leaving your lounge chair. Parents can rest assured as kids play happily in the water under lifeguard supervision. A solarium encloses the 65-foot-long indoor heated pool (if you’re lucky you may even catch a few rays on a rare sunny winter day), and both pools at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel are about four feet deep.
