Express elevators zip guests to a vast lobby, where floor-to-ceiling windows provide a dazzling outlook over the Pearl River New City district, whose architectural attractions include a Zaha Hadid–designed opera house. Rooms start at 52 square meters, all with sweeping views of their own. And amenities are top-notch, from Reson8 iPod speakers to L’Occitane toiletries, adding a big splash of style to the city’s new business district
