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
Great architecture, very easy to walk around but very hard to communicate with anyone, and I understand that I'm in China 🤔, but it was very hard for us to try to ask a question and then forget about Internet! it won't work! The grand Hyatt is beautiful and they also they have a skywalk in the top of the building that they will attached you and you can walk outside the Hyatt building
Good Location in the Financial Part of Shanghai.
Great views from the rooms as they are all high up. The restaurant and bar also offers good views over the city.
The Rooms are very comfortable with great beds and an open bathroom. I love the bath with the views.
The only views which are blocked is if your room is overlooking at the massive skyscraper next to it.
Ok first of all I ain’t a big fan for the calligraphy in the room. It looks like graveyard to me to be very honest. U can see a good view of Pudong but it’s not something very spectacular and have no vision to the Bund. The services are ok and people there are quite attentive and responsive. Breakfast is a little bit disappointing. Too crowded. Limited choice of food. The most amazing thing is I stay there for two nights and did two breakfast. On both days the coffee served was never come with a teaspoon. This kind of service level will never make this hotel a truly five star hotel.
I stayed at the Grand Hyatt Shanghai for work and it exceeded my expectations. The room was large and comfortable, there were no issues connecting to wi-fi and the office and as I was very busy, I was grateful for the extensive room service menu, as well as the 24 hour gym. The hotel is very beautiful with stunning views and a number of different bars/lounges and restaurants. It is also walking distance to transport, Pearl Tower and some nice shopping malls.
The staff at this hotel are lovely and professional. I would especially like to thank Xie Mei Yan from house keeping for her excellent service.
I am returning next week for another work trip and look forward to my stay.
Walking around this hotel, one gets the impression it is really an art gallery - dozens and dozens of exquisite watercolors, lovely statuary. Rooms are very comfortable, and loaded with amenities. The dining room on the 54th floor offers a choice of buffet or a la carte. The buffet is almost decadent in its seafood content; the a la carte menu is very nicely selected. Dining room staff can be difficult to flag down once you are seated. Do bring your own salt and pepper shakers - they are difficult to come by in this hotel, and never appear on a room service tray.
