On the banks of Tiajin’s Haihe River, in the city’s bustling business district, this towering property offers the kind of amenities you’d expect from the award-winning Shangri-La brand. The grand lobby features two Art Deco–style chandeliers and a mammoth mural painted by Paris-based Chinese artist Chen Jiang Hong. The 302 guestrooms are huge (the smallest measures 517 square feet), and they all come with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the river. The decor is classic corporate, with walnut wood panels and spacious work desks livened up by Chinese floral print fabrics. Tuck into Cantonese cuisine and local specialties at Shang Palace, which features 70 paintings by local artists, or head to Cafe Yun for a street food–style dining experience in which you can order dishes from six theater kitchens. Plans are in place to open a 24-hour gym, outdoor tennis courts, an indoor pool and a signature CHI spa.

How to Get There
What a wonderful day at the Shangri-La in Tianjin. We were lucky enough to enjoy the first of the “Aussie BBQ" themed lunch. The staff were out straight away explaining how the BBQ worked and what was available, whilst putting an Aussie beer or wine in your hand. The perfect way to start an incredibly thought out and organized BBQ. There was a real BBQ with excellent Australian meats and salads arranged in a buffet style under a canopy. We were shown where we could sit and eat outside and introduced to other friendly people who lived in the Tianjin areas.
The Manager “Jason” was outside waiting to meet and greet everyone with his extremely friendly Australian way. He was very patient with questions and inquiries from all of us about the many things going on that day. Jason also made sure our children were looked after with food and drinks straight away, whilst pointing out the bouncy castle for them to enjoy with the other children, the chef experimented with hot to make Aussie ANZAC biscuits, lamingtons and pavlova – all delicious!
Overall, an excellent day out, we felt like we were back at home in a real Aussie garden with friends. A lovely relaxed an enjoyable environment with fabulous food, beer, wine and new people to meet.
The service from all staff and management at the Tianjin Shangri la each time we have visited has been impeccable and of an excellent standard. The Shangri la Executive Team especially the General Manager, Mr. Jason Stinson and his amazing Chef have all made our visit very special and exceptional.
I highly recommend the Shangri-La Tianjin for anyone wanting to enjoy any array of dining experience as this hotel really does do it all.
Took my family to the first of the summer "Aussy BBQ" themed lunches at the Shangrila Tianjin and I can not wait to go again. Set up on the balcony outside the restaurant, there is bowls on the lawn, a bouncy castle for the kids, plenty of seating and a delicious BBQ. It was such a relaxed and enjoyable day, with thew usual high level of service from the Shangrila staff. It felt just like a BBQ at home in Australia with lamb chops and sausages, prawn and oysters, sunshine and music and friendly faces. Highly recommended.
We stayed one night on 27th floor, very nice view on the river and absolutely worth the money. Horizon club is always a good option in Shangri-La.
The swimming pool was closed for maintenance reasons and the wifi is so slow that you can hardly use it. This is an issue you should take into consideration when you need to have a good internet speed for business reasons!
Breakfast was stellar, the bar on ground floor is more likely a cafe and I would not recommended to go there at the end of a long day (closes at midnight).
5 stars because these are minor issues and the price is very reasonable.
The Shangri-La Hotel Tianjin is well-situated (15 min walk from Tianjin Station), and has outstanding views of the river, major bridges, and the city area. The pleasant professionalism of the multi-lingual staff in the Horizon Club Lounge and in the Health Club is excellent. A very easy place to visit.
The Shangri-la Hotel Tianjin is one of the finest Shangri-la Hotels in China. The staff is friendly, the hotel is new, the food is great, and it's always a pleasure to stay here. It's also in a great location near the HSR Tianjin (close enough to walk to). A walk or run along the river is always enjoyable too.
