Though Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund partially occupies a historic 101-year-old building, its in-room technology is undeniably modern. Each room is equipped with an energy-saving system that controls the lights and temperature. When you leave, the lights turn off and the temperature lowers; when you return to your room, everything goes back up. The digital panel next to the bed can also control the lights, drapes and in-room temperature. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel has Wi-Fi throughout, but you don’t have to bring your computer to go online — every room has a Bluetooth keyboard, which you can use with the room’s LCD television to check e-mail and surf the Internet.
