Four Seasons Hotel

I personally think the new Four Seasons is one of the best value five-star hotels in the area offering amazing views from its location on the 74th to 98th floors of the Guangzhou IFC not to mention its spectacular atrium with a view all the way up. Features include an infinity pool with a view, five restaurants, and a bar, spa, and gymnasium. More info and room rates

The Atrium of the Four Seasons is a work of art!
