Grand Hyatt Shanghai
What We Love
- Wowing it up—way up—as part of Pudong’s iconic skyline
- 57th-floor swimming pool, one of the city’s highest
- The world’s longest laundry shoot; air buffers slow the sheets on their almost quarter-mile drop
- Soft jazz lilts up the 33-story atrium (just try not to crane your neck)
What To Know
- Taxis and nearby subway notwithstanding, Pudong can be a hike to tourist sites
- Book a River View room for vertigo-inducing vistas of the Bund and beyond
- Rooms are amply sized for an urban hotel
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
The 555-room crown to the Jin Mao Tower, Pudong’s 88-story post-modern pagoda offers plenty of reasons to stay in the clouds. The tricked out fitness/pool/spa complex and nine restaurants and bars, including the Cloud 9 cocktail den on the 87th floor, are chief among them. Late-arrivals will appreciate the 24-hour Art Deco-style Shanghainese bistro. Room decor is contemporary corporate with bits of flash: minimalist headboards, crackled red lacquer walls with Yang-dynasty poems scrawled in gold, and, in the large marble bathrooms, clear glass sinks and deep-soaking tubs. You barely need those sick floor-to-ceiling views to remind you you’re on top of it all.
In the Area
Symbolic of Shanghai’s ascendant status, Pudong (literally “East of the River”) is an epicenter of heady excess, from Asia’s longest underwater tunnel at the Shanghai Ocean Aquarium to the 100th-floor observation deck at Shanghai World Financial Center, Mainland China’s tallest building. In 2014, the Shanghai Tower will leapfrog it by an additional 140 meters. Farther afield, Century Park is the city’s largest lung, Shanghai Disneyland’s Enchanted Storybook Castle will eventually be the world’s grandest, and when coming from the airport, you might as well travel 268 mph aboard the Shanghai Maglev, the world’s fastest train in commercial service.
How to Get There
Very nice experience. Got upgraded to suite room and was very impressed with overall experience. There is a dining on one of the top floors that got the nice view over the river and Wei Tan (the Bund)
Decided to splurge and stay at the Grand Hyatt and it lived up to our expectations. The room was huge and well appointed (although slightly showing its age now) and the views were to die for. We could have sat and looked out of the window all day. The spa and gym were great and again had amazing views. The room service food was lovely and enjoyed (again) the views from the bar at the top. Thanks to Sydney and Micheal at check in for looking after us and making it such a special stay. If you want to admire the views of Pudong and the Bund in luxury then make sure you stay here
The hotel to choose! fantastic service! Leon was kind and taking care of all our needs! Beautiful and comfortable room: the breakfast was incredible; the choice of food is excellent! Will come back again!
