Head for heights: Four Seasons Guangzhou

A lofty and luxurious business hotel in the financial heart of China's futuristic city

Vertigo sufferers beware: this is not the place for you. The Four Seasons Guangzhou is the highest hotel in the city and one of the loftiest in the world. But if you revel in the sky-high atmosphere, few hotels can match its mix of luxuriously modern rooms, superb food offerings and convenience for business. And the atrium lobby must be one of the most Instagrammable things in the entire city.

In a word: unbeatable. Located in futuristic Zhujiang New Town, the hotel occupies the 70th to 100th floors of Guangzhou IFC, meaning you’re right on top of the city’s financial heart. You’re also just a short walk from Zhujiang Park, numerous commercial buildings and striking contemporary landmarks including an opera house, a library and a museum.

The Rooms

These are rooms fit for the hotel’s ultramodern surroundings. Each of the 344 rooms, which include 42 suites, is sleek and cool yet luxurious and spacious. The deep soaking tubs are a highlight, but for business trips the workspaces are especially noteworthy: glass desks, iPads and plentiful charging stations come standard.

Private dining rooms in the numerous restaurants and the airy lobby lounge, with its 270-degree views of the city, are ideal for informal meetings.
