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
- 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
Amazing hotel and views across Shanghai, great service across the hotel and in the bars except for the service in restuarant which was poor.
The bars in the hotel closed to early especially when there was 14 of us having drinks.
Center location, in the middle of the Pudong Business District; the view was awesome, overlooking the most modern skyline of China.
The hotel blends the traditional "heavy" luxury feel and modern tech well, pretty much sets the standard for 5 star hotel.
I love to keep coming back to Grand Hyatt Shanghai because of its service - the staff here are awesome, friendly, helpful and have the personal touch. Location is great, next to IFC, World Finance Center, Shanghai Tower and the Oriental Pearl Tower. You can get a great view of Shanghai and the Bund from the river view rooms and lounge.
Overall a great stay! Hotel is in a great location - in the heart of Pudong area, convenient going to anywhere. Staff very welcoming and accommodating. Been Hyatt Globalist and enjoyed the last long stay included a Chinese Nee Year in the middle - thanks Grand Hyatt Shanghai.
Grand Hyatt in Shanghai continues to deliver a consistent and pleasant experience after many years of being in the business. Something to be said about an establishment that can maintain quality in a market as competitive as Shanghai.
