|This hotel, the tallest in the world, is located in the center of Shanghai's new economic development zone in Pudong. The Grand Hyatt Shanghai is situated in the tallest building in China, the second tallest building in Asia and one of the most spectacular buildings in Shanghai.|
The hotel itself does not even begin until you are almost half way up the building, but the elevators here travel incredibly fast so hold on to your hats! The Hotel enjoys a good geographical location -- 25 km from Hongqiao International Airport, 26 km from Pudong International Airport, 12 km from Shanghai Railway Station and 6 km from the center of the city. Transport over to Pudong from Puxi is now good.
The hotel has 555 suites and it is no exaggeration to say that they are the most superior and the largest suites in Shanghai. This is THE "in" place to stay at the moment and with views like the ones from every room in the hotel, it is no great surprise. All the rooms are situated around a circular atrium which whips up the center of the hotel.
The rooms all have access to the most up-to-date financial and business information via special CATS high speed computer devices. Guest bathrooms are furnished with high-tech power showers amongst other luxurious facilities. There is a well-equipped business center, banquet halls and ten conference halls, all equipped with high tech audio and video facilities and ideal for conference or business meetings.
The Hotel's restaurants are also spectacular and already renowned throughout Shanghai. So too are the two bars on the 88th floor of the building where Shanghai stars frequently perform. And, when you have eaten and drunk to your heart's content, why not take a swim in the clouds in the Hotel pool on the 87th floor of the building!
This Hotel really is like nothing else in the city or indeed in China. If you have the money, (its not cheap for this kind of decadence) and you want, need, or just enjoy total luxury, the Grand Hyatt is unbeatable.
