Forbes Travel Guide, the only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, recently announced its 2022 Star Awards. The Sukhothai Shanghai is the latest addition to its illustrious annual Star Rating list among 1,282 hotels worldwide, as a four-star hotel with the Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED™ recognition.

The comprehensive facility verification helps ensure that guests and travel planners can book with confidence at properties that have excellent service and appropriate health and safety procedures in place that minimise the risk and impact of COVID-19 and potential future public health events.

Each year, Forbes Travel Guide sends its professional, anonymous reviewers to visit hotels around the world as regular guests and rate them against as many as 900 rigorous and objective criteria. These standards include hotel design, staff uniforms, catering options, service systems, sleep experience, etc., aiming to provide travelers with more professional and objective reference opinions.


Located in the shopping and tourist hotspot of West Nanjing Road and Shimen Yi Road, The Sukhothai Shanghai is a contemporary lifestyle hotel that forms an integral part of the HKRI Taikoo Hui mixed-use complex, which also includes Grade-A office towers and a premium shopping mall.

About The Sukhothai Hotels & Resorts

The Sukhothai hotel logo consists of 22 diamond droplets forming the Chedi design that was inspired by Sukhothai, the first capital of Siam.

Each drop of the diamond, polished to an identical marquise shape and seemingly finding its own position within the whole, represents the individuals of the qualified hotel associates who, guided by intuition yet precise in every detail, anticipate our guests’ needs and cater to them exceptionally. 

Each property within the brand portfolio remains distinct and uniquely designed while maintaining the essential quality that is the hallmark of the brand.
