When deciding on the best room at Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund, it really comes down to personal preference. The suites in the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s Heritage Building are truly lavish and feature the 101-year-old structure’s restored detailing, like molding, wainscoting and mantels. The rooms here have played host to everyone from the crown princes of Luxembourg and Belgium to fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. These suites, of course, come at a price — and the most expensive one isn’t necessarily the best. Families looking for room to spread out should look into a suite or one of 22 connected rooms. For knockout views, book a river-view suite, where you can gaze out on the Huangpu River and the Pudong skyline. Both look best at night when they’re all lit up.
