Shanghai Peninsula repeats as world's best business hotel

The Peninsula Shanghai has been recognised as the world's top business hotel for the second consecutive year by US-based Travel+Leisure magazine. The results of the annual World's Best Business Hotels survey are published in the December 2013 issue, which features premier hotels for business travellers in cities around the world as voted for by its readers.

The Peninsula Shanghai topped Travel+Leisure's World's Best Business Hotels list, scoring 97.27 out of 100. The magazine's review of the hotel commends "the 235 guest rooms that combine embossed glass lamps and black-lacquer screens with 21st-century amenities. All come with VoIP phones, portable master control panels, and spa tubs with music and light settings."

Every year, the readers of Travel+Leisure are asked to nominate the hotels that represent the very best in worldwide business travel. Respondents are asked to rate hotels on room quality and amenities, facilities for business travellers, location, service standards, restaurants and food, and overall value. The Travel+Leisure editorial team screens all respondents, and responses from any identified travel-industry professionals who completed the survey are eliminated from the final tally.

Located on the historic riverside Bund, The Peninsula Shanghai pays homage to Shanghai in the 1920s and 1930s, and recreates the look and feel of this glamorous era when the city was feted as "The Paris of the East."
