A new generation of hotels throughout China is the cornerstone of a highly developed, traveler-friendly tourism infrastructure. China now has a complete range of hotel choices in all price categories, from luxurious five-star suites to deluxe mid-priced hotels and clean, comfortable rooms even in the budget category. Today, every major city in China can provide discriminating travelers with a wide selection of modern, world-class properties that meet, and often exceed, international standards. Hotels such as the famous Peace Hotel (on the Bund) in Shanghai, the Palace Hotel in Beijing (close to the Forbidden City), and the White Swan in Guangzhou have gained international reputations for their exquisite decor, international gourmet dining, and first-class service. Familiar chains such as Sheraton, Hilton, Holiday Inn, Hyatt, and Ramada now operate deluxe hotels throughout China as well. Business travelers should note that China has come a long way even since the early 1990s in terms of facilities, service and management. 4- and 5-star hotels will also likely have complete business centers with computer and secretarial services available.
