Hurun Report, renowned for its annual China Rich List of tycoons, has recently hosted Shanghai’s Best Presidential Suites Awards.
The awards ceremony was held on 15 June, timed to coincide with the opening of the Asia Luxury Travel Market, the regionâ€™s leading showcase for the luxury travel industry.
“Before now China’s luxury consumers have had little idea of Shanghai’s top suites and executive club lounges, despite the fact that hotels spend so much money on them,” says Rupert Hoogewerf, founder of Hurun Report
“We created a scorecard to assess and rank the top Presidential Suites and Executive Club Lounges, many of which are truly outstanding.”
Among 16 award winners, Pudong Shanghai Shangri-La (pictured above) was honoured for â€˜Best River Viewâ€™, Park Hyatt Shanghai for â€˜Most Advanced Technologyâ€™ and The Portman Ritz-Carlton for â€˜Best Oriental Styleâ€™.
