This Shanghai Hotel Has the City's Best Skyline Views — Even From the Bathtub

When it comes to skylines, Shanghai knows how to impress. From the Oriental Pearl Tower, which looks like a spaceship with its massive domes, to the Shanghai Tower, rising over 2,000 feet above China’s financial capital, this city has some seriously defining buildings.

But while it’s truly mind-boggling to stand underneath these massive structures, they're best observed from across the Huangpu River. And one hotel might just have the most stunning views of them all — bathtub included.

At the Shanghai Edition — part of Ian Schrager’s powerhouse brand of luxury hotels with a laid-back vibe — the sweeping views of the city will pull you in, but the comfort and character of the hotel will make you want to stay forever. And on a recent trip, I got to experience Shanghai’s coolest hotel firsthand.

Tucked away on Nanjing Road, Shanghai’s answer to New York’s Fifth Avenue or Paris’s Champs-Élysée, the signature scent of the hotel created by Le Labo drifts past chic shoppers and tourists. The lobby — accented in soft beige hues and sheer curtains against royal blue velvet couches — sets the tone for the rest of the hotel, which is separated into two towers with 145 guest rooms. Immediately upon arrival the staff is there to assist and guide you, but they don’t breathe down your neck. Part of the Edition’s allure is that it’s the sort of place where jetsetters or trendy locals feel welcome and relevant.

Re: bathroom.
Wonder if anyone stands at a window across the water with binoculars?
Remember, not too long ago ARod was photgraphed in his bathroom with a view.

LOL  Good question, I don't want to find out the hard way!  Then again, someone looking at me would have a heart attack from fright!
