Celebrating the iDEALs of Shanghai life from bigboy265's blog

Based on 218,600 votes cast by shanghai life readers and users of shine.cn, the fifth iDEALShanghai Awards honored a total of 81 winners in 26 categories during a ceremony last Friday at the Shanghai Grand Theater. The awards celebrated readers’ favorite luxury, business and designer hotels, serviced villas and apartments and gourmet and fashion brands. Hotels from the cities of Hangzhou, Sanya, Suzhou, Wuhan, Chengdu, Xiamen, Ningbo and Nanjing were also recognized. All the winners are recognized for their unique merits, their quality service to customers, setting an example in their own industries and, more importantly, making a great contribution to the service industry in Shanghai and China.

The iDEALShanghai Awards, launched in 2012, aim to celebrate businesses and venues that have a close relationship with the city and its people. So, instead of a professional jury, the awards are chosen entirely by the public. The iDEALShanghai Awards are also a platform for introducing Shanghai and China to broader audiences and drawing readers and the newspaper closer together."This year was very historic for us. We had very diverse shows, not just family shows but we went into sports events.

We had the first NHL ice hockey game, an amazing NBA exhibition game with the Golden State Warriors and Minnesota Timberwolves and another inaugural sports event in the UFC Shanghai fight night. We also hosted the Alibaba double 11 countdown and the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, so we are just standing by our aim of becoming the busiest venue, not just in China but in Asia. Our focus for next year is more sport, now that the Chinese government has invested heavily, as well with the Winter Olympics coming in 2022. It was very good to win the award as the Fashion Landmark of Shanghai. We’ve been partners with Shanghai Daily for a long time.""Mandarin Oriental in every destination around the world is known for its legendary service. No matter how many new hotels enter the market, it doesn’t change our focus on creating a customer service-driven culture among our hotel team in order to keep our leading position among China’s luxury hotels. In addition, we shall continue to offer our guests world-class dining experiences, presented by two of the region’s most exciting chefs — Tony Lu from Shanghai and Richard Ekkebus from Hong Kong. Shanghai is an ever-changing city and there’s a hugely exciting new development at Harbour City, right on the doorstep of Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai.
