Although its official description as the city’s "New Technology Development Zone" has a vaguely Orwellian ring to it, the Caohejing district of Shanghai is actually a buzzing hub of Asian urban futurism. And the arrival of the gleaming Renaissance Shanghai Caohejing serves to cement that, catering to those looking to work and play.
With 383 rooms reaching high up into the Shanghai sky, its impressive tech credentials are complemented by significant epicurean offerings, including the Smoki Moto pan-Asian restaurant, the more casual, international Cafe BLD, and the unambiguously named The Lounge, with its signature "R" cocktails and a program of live performances by up-and-coming music artists. The luxurious TOUCH SPA proves this place is anything but all business.
