Just putting it out there: if anyone should require assistance testing out the new Four Seasons Guangzhou, just give us the word. We'd be more than happy to pitch in...

As of this month, the soaring 103-story Guangzhou International Finance Center is now home to Four Seasons' newest property (though certainly not their only opening in Asia this year), and she's a beauty.

Occupying the building's top 30 floors, FSG is already wowing guests with its killer views overlooking the Pearl River Delta, soup bowl-shaped bathtubs, and an atrium that reaches 30 stories high.

Tying the whole atrium together is a ten foot high steel sculpture by Australian artist Matthew Harding, titled Neo (like the dude from The Matrix). Like a gleaming new sports car in a mall, the red and silver piece, pictured above, sits on top of a black glass fountain. Way up above, the atrium's glass ceiling lets in a flood of natural light, which in turn reflects back down on the water and statue below. Pretty nifty, huh?

Art is undoubtedly a priority for the HBA-interior-designed hotel, though the rooms and amenities themselves don't sound too shabby either. 302 rooms and 42 suites offer floor-to-ceiling windows, marble bathrooms (with mirror TVs!) and high-speed WiFI. And that's before you even get to the hotel's six restaurants (including the 100th-floor seafood eatery, Catch), 69th-floor indoor pool, and ground-floor Hua Spa.

Rates start at around $330/night, though with a special "Have It All" introductory package, guests can get a room, breakfast buffet, dining voucher, a 45-minute spa treatment and WiFi for just $468/night.
