Serene high-rise in historic Nanjing with a sublime spa and panoramic lake and mountain views

The Lowdown

Towering above tranquil Xuanwu Lake, the Shangri-La Hotel, Nanjing peers down onto the paddleboat-strewn waters and lake gardens lined with temples and teahouses. The interiors channel the local scenery with a calming, Zen-like decor that features a muted violet palette and plum blossom motifs. In the guestrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows look out at the smoky Purple Mountain in the distance. Head to Jiangnan Wok to sample chef Hou’s authentic Huaiyang creations, or see culinary professionals work their magic at Café Xuan’s live cooking stations. Relax with a dip in the indoor pool or splurge on a traditional Chinese massage at CHI, the SPA.

In the Area

Having twice served as China’s capital city, Nanjing has more to offer than being a mere layover point between Shanghai and Beijing. Make the trek up the daunting 392 steps to visit the mausoleum of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, the founding father of the Republic of China. Be sure to visit the memorial in the morning to avoid the afternoon tourist rush; the lush scenery is worth the early morning wake-up call. Reward yourself later by chowing down on juicy burgers and shoestring fries at cult burger joint Motu. For some retail therapy, Aqua City is Nanjing’s newest mall, and Librairie Avant-Garde is a huge indie bookstore located in an underground garage.

Chaotic breakfast
Reviewed 7 days ago

The rooms are big and the beds are comfy however at breakfast on our 2nd second morning there were so many people we couldn't eat at the usual breakfast place but a make-shift place and we had to share a table with other guests

Nice and good services

Such a luxury hotel in Nanjing with perfect location and nice services. My 1st choice every time visit Nanjing. Especially horizon club, my favorite place to hang out during free time. All the staffs are so friendly. Special thanks to Simona, Audrey & Laura for their kindness and friendly attitude.

Great hotel by the lake. Fantastic views from the 39th floor. We had a standard room so couldn't use the bar on the 40th floor which was a shame. The concierge Anthony Zhang was extremely helpful and nice. Breakfast was extensive, shame that didn't have the famous Nanjing soup dumplings on offer. Would stay again.

The hotel was great and so was the part of Nanjing that I saw

Shangri-La Nanjing is a great hotel. High rise, failry new rooms, new function rooms. I enjoyed the daily breakfast buffet that was so sumptuous and filling. The hotel staff are great - very helpful and accommodating even though most of them were challenged - communications-wise -- not English speaking but they do go at great lengths to find someone who did, and helped me communicate...

I wandered around Nanjing. It is s developing City.... close to some Universities. Food is easy to get if you are happy to do sign language or look at pictures and select.

The hotel is near a great lake --- Xuan Wu Lake which is a top notch national park. It so nice waling arounf in the morning and many interesting things to see --- the lake itself, the decks, the cherry blossoms garden which is just so beautiful, the walls, the islands inside the lake, the Chinese buildings. It is great to ride boats in the lake. Food is easy to get -- failing all, you can get McDonalds, KFC and burger king. You will get immeesed in CHinese culture --- Tai chi, chinese checkers, swords, whips, kite flying, ball room dancing, birds, fishing, photography, etc.
