which hotel has the best location?

we have one night in Hangzhou.

which hotel has the best location which is near night shopping and have many eateries/massage within walking distance to it?

budget is 4-5 star hotel.

it would be good if there are such hotels around west lake area.

(does Hyatt or Shangri La fit the bill here?)

Shangri La has really good view, you can check the hotel on elong or crip since the price changes by season, etc

Yes, u can get taxis to different tourist sights and shopping areas, but it's not so easy to get taxis especially in the lake area, so you'd better ask yr hotel call a taxi for u when u go out. For shopping area, u can go to yan'an road area or wulin road area, lots of shopping malls in these areas.

If you are in Hangzhou over a weekend, then the taxi ride from the ShangriLa can be long as there is traffic gridlock around West Lake. Many times, walkers get places quicker than taxis.

The Hyatt is better located, but you should book the top floor, executive club, for the views. The architect put the swimming pool roof in the way of the lake for most rooms. Makes no sense, but a lakeview room usually looks at the pool roof.

Another one next to the lake is The Sofitel Westlake. Not super impressed with the hotel I forgive it because it has excellent location.
