Modern Luxury In An Ancient Land

Newsday reports on the new crop of luxury hotels popping up all over China:

You used to be able to count the number of China’s five-star hotels on five fingers, so the emergence of world-class accommodations here is welcome news for travelers.

China’s new luxe lodgings come with all the flourishes: state-of-the-art electronics, exceptional settings, international cuisine, dreamy spas and designer decor. Better still, the rates sometimes are appreciably lower than at such accommodations in the West.

But in other ways, Chinese hotels don’t always live up to their stars, partly because the government-sponsored rating system is based on facilities only, neglecting the quality of service.
