Location, luxury and service. The Grand Hyatt Shanghai provides all this and so much more. Holding the title of World’s Highest Hotel (occupying the 53rd to 87th floors of the infamous Jin Mao Tower) has only served to enhance the extensive amenities and services this gorgeous hotel offers. Needless to say, the magnificent views are simply stunning, with aerials of the entire Shanghai skyline.

Every room exhibits views of nearby Yuyuan Garden and the Bund, Shanghai’s old and main road where many of the historical financial and diplomatic offices lie, not to mention world class shopping and dining. Guestrooms are exceptionally sophisticated, dressed in warm beige tones and cherry wood while bathrooms are swathed in marble and the most modern of luxurious fixtures. As much as you may luxuriate in the plush comfort of the feather down duvets, you will no doubt feel as if you are suspended between earth and the skies, as the sunny blues of the day recedes into a romantic darkness that gives a navy glow to the entire perimeter of the spacious rooms.

If you ever venture outside, good luck choosing where to eat with 6 restaurants, 3 bars (one of them aptly named Cloud 9) and a large food court, all of which offer unique and authentic specialties. As one of the most popular hotels in Shanghai, the Grand Hyatt’s many dining options also serves as the hangout for local jet setters and celebrities. This is a hotel where there is constantly something going on, something to peek your interest.

In the mood to exercise? The famed Oasis Fitness Centre is at your fingertips with state of the art equipment, but personally, I prefer the massive indoor pool, a haven from the hustle and bustle of such a cosmopolitan city. The Grand Hyatt Shanghai is one of those few properties in the world that makes you wish you could permanently live in a hotel. Staying here will only enhance your trip to Shanghai, making it unforgettable and regrettably too short.
