Occupying 14 floors of the 101-story Shanghai World Financial Center, the Park Hyatt is one of the world’s highest hotels, but it floats serenely above this frenetic city of 24 million. Designer Tony Chi has created a minimalist masterpiece that puts guests in the heart of the Lujiazui business district, within minutes of museums and such marquee attractions as the Bund. Museum-worthy pieces from the private contemporary art collection of Japanese real estate mogul (and owner of the 1,614-foot structure) Minoru Mori are displayed prominently throughout, but the jaw-dropping views from the floor-to-ceiling windows take center stage.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms are simply furnished but generous in size (starting at 592 square feet), with comfy beds, Ming-style chairs, espresso machines and flat-screen TVs. The blackout curtains (something you might not see in Shanghai’s other luxe hotels) and espresso machines are a nice touch. Rainfall showerheads, separate tubs and heated floors lend a spa-like feel to the bathrooms.
Head to the 100 Century Avenue restaurant to sample an eclectic mix of Western, Chinese and Japanese fare, or enjoy European-style dishes in the Dining Room, where the fiery orange shagreen walls and olive leather chairs offer a little more panache than the rest of the hotel does. Bar Level 87 is an intimate watering hole set around a leather-lined circular bar, you can take your dancing shoes up to the Music Room bar, the highest nightclub in the world, which has a resident DJ and live music. For the wellness-minded there’s a 24-hour fitness center and an infinity pool up on the 85th floor, and free one-hour tai chi classes are on offer each morning. For a little more pampering, book the destress muscle release treatment at the Water’s Edge spa and drift off into a reverie. Modern-day Shanghai will feel far away.
In the Area
The tree-lined streets of the French Concession are the city’s most charming and evocative. Only a few blocks long, Anfu Lu is filled with boutiques and cafés. Our picks: Kava Kava Home for traditional furniture in bright hues, Japanese designer Mayumi Sato’s eponymous boutique, and Baker & Spice for a quick pick-me-up. Beijing is China’s arts capital, but Shanghai is catching up. Housed in a historic building restored by British architect David Chipperfield, the Rockbund Art Museum mounts major shows by Chinese artists. California native Brad Turley’s tiny Goga lures fellow chefs with its Pacific Rim fare. Check out his rooftop space, Hai, next door.
How to Get There
we recommand to have a drink at the bar of the hotel not only for the view of the city but also for the service and the atmosphere. Do not miss the swimming pool and the sauna at the hotel for the exceptional night view
I've stayed a many hotels in Shanghai but my first time at the Park Hyatt. I love the serenity of the hotel in the color themes, the layout of the room, the precision of details. I stayed in a king with a view of Bund. A large room with a minimalist vibe. Includes large bathroom w/dbl sinks, huge bathtub, separate water closet, bathroom amenities galore. Plenty of storage with large closet. Nespresso machine, tea bags, bottles of water daily, fruit in a bowl and more. Gym is nice size with free weights, machines, yoga mats & bowls. Pool is beautiful with lovely views. Service and food in the restaurants was perfect. PH is my new hotel in Shanghai
As a Hyatt Passport member , we chose to Stay at the Park Hyatt Shanghai for its location in Pudong and favorable reviews. . We received a great rate through Visa Signature which included breakfast , late checkout and $25 food credit. The hotel is located between the 80-91 floors of Shanghai World Financial Center and exhibited understated elegance with chic. Front desk check in on the 87th floor was smooth and professional with Queenie .
The room on the 80 th and 83rd was an upgraded king with view of the Bund and Jin Mao Tower . Shower and sink room were spacious and elegant but the Toto toilet was separate down the hall - a little inconvenient .
The hotel acknowledged our anniversary with champagne, truffles and cookies - nice treat!
The bed was comfortable with Asian hardness .
The room had blackout shades and silence which promoted sleep - a welcome luxury.
Plenty of bottled water and a nespresso machine were part of the room perks.
The breakfast on 91 had an array of Chinese dumplings , noodle soup, Japanese miso soup and rice along with western eggs, cereals and fresh fruits.
The gym was well equipped with treadmills , bikes weights and machines nearby the infinity pool .
The hotel helped us obtain train tickets To Hangzhou and delivered them to our room - thank you Queenie and Joanna Yan!
On check out, Lara thankfully caught we had two reservations for our return and patiently let us cancel one before we left for Hangzhou - thank you !
The hotel is also a 7-10 min short walk on protected elevated walkways to the Lujiazui Shanghai metro stop on the #2 line which is super convenient
Overall, a wonderful and restful stay in Shanghai and would definitely stay again !
Only negatives would be some inconsistent WiFi and somewhat dark lighting in halls.
