In China, an underground luxury hotel

“Under construction” has taken on new meaning for a new luxury hotel outside Shanghai — 16 of the 19 floors are being built below ground level in an abandoned quarry. The 380-room InterContinental Shimao Wonderland, whose deepest floor will house a restaurant that will actually be underwater at the bottom of the quarry, is expected to open by late 2014 or early 2015.
