"Perfection to desire for!"
Everything about this hotel is held upto incredible standards and perfection! The attention to detail in the design of every corner of this hotel is superb. Rooms are of the finest quality and the overall vibe is absolutely fantastic! I try to stay here pretty much every time I'm in Shanghai.
"Great food! Amazing view! I don't want to leave!"
I am writing this review from my beautiful room on the 79th floor of the Park Hyatt Shanghai. I'm sad to say that I'll be leaving tomorrow morning but very happy to report that my stay here was amazing from start to finish. The highlights for me would be the view (see attached photos) and the food (see MANY attached photos). The Sunday Brunch offered in The Dining Room was spectacular. The staff were always welcoming and friendly. I love this hotel! Great job, Park Hyatt Shanghai!
"Classy & cool"
This is a really nice, well maintained business hotel - the lap pool is effectively an elongated bath tub for two swimmers and a gym for no more than 5 persons before one starts to feel claustrophobic (it is packed with machines and weights). Breakfast spread is top quality, variety is sensible. Rooms are certainly generous in size but remember you are paying for what you get.
"Great if you value form over function"
As a business traveller this is not my ideal hotel. It's quite stylish and luxurious, no question, but not particularly user friendly. All 5 members of my delegation complained about simple things, like sorting out how the lighting and shower worked. The decor is so dark in the rooms, and the lighting so stylishly dim, that it's hard to even check your suit before leaving the room. I can't imagine someone trying to put on makeup in the mirror with such poor lighting. There are potentially useful bits for couples - like two separate wardrobe areas so two people can unpack suitcases etc. Except that the shelf meant to hold your suitcase while unpacking is lit from underneath - meaning that the lights are shining in your eyes when unpacking/packing, and the suit case is silhouetted such that you can't see the contents! Just rubbish design. The pool is beautiful, and it would be very pleasant to sit by the pool on the 85th floor. The gym (6/10) is only ok. It is very cramped. Machines, dumbells, treadmills and ellipticals only. An adjacent area by the pool can be used for stretching etc. The restaurant was fantastic and expensive as you would expect. I had roast duck breast done in a way I had never seen before and it was delicious. the bar on 91 is fine, but expect $30AUD for a glass of wine. Because this is a new area of Shanghai, there is little on the streets to see. A half hour walk was pretty boring. All in all, potentially great for couples and those interested in style (and that's ok), but not a hotel I would willingly choose again.
"Luxury hotel with a great view"
I had wanted to stay in the Park Hyatt Shanghai after learning about it a few years back. An opportunity to travel to Shanghai for business came up in August 2016, so decided to have a 4 night stay here. In addition we also had a 2 night stay at the Ritz-Carlton Shanghai Pudong in this trip which I have also reviewed. Overall, we had an enjoyable stay at the Park Hyatt Shanghai. It is a great choice for business travelers around the Pudong area, particularly in Shanghai World Financial Center. It's worth a visit for its unique and breathtaking view of Shanghai, and its status as the highest hotel in Shanghai as of this writing (and also one of the highest in the world). Soft product: I found the service to be good, but not as warm as the service in Ritz-Carlton Shanghai Pudong. - Housekeeping was good, but the tea / coffee / milk not were refilled consistently, so we had to call housekeeping to get the missing items on a couple of occasions. - The staff at the swimming pool were great. They greeted me as I entered and brought towels promptly. Hard product: We got a deluxe bund view room on the 81st floor. - The view was great as one would expect. We had a view of the top of the Jin Mao tower, the Oriental Pearl Tower, Huangpu river, and the countless skyscrapers that make up Shanghai. The extremely clear skies during August also helped. - The interior of the room featured prominent use of high quality dark-colored wood and stone. Following the general theme of Park Hyatt, this hotel seems to be going for dull colors - possibly a "forest in the sky" theme' Unlike the Ritz-Carlton you won't find over-the-top decorations such as glossy wood, gold-trimmed columns, or abundant use of marble. So this was refreshing to see. - The room was in great condition. It was also incredibly spacious, which was helped by the tall ceiling. In fact, it even felt a bit empty - the wall on one side of the room was completely blank, which felt a bit odd. Maybe hanging a painting or decoration of some sort would've helped' - The swimming pool was well-maintained and is of a good size. Only gripe here was that the hot tub (') was down for maintenance during our entire stay. Location: Situated on the near the top of the SWFC. Perhaps the hotel's main draw is the magnificent view of Shanghai from the sky. (There are an abundance of luxury hotels in Pudong). I will also say that this is an excellent location for business travelers working at the SWFC. However, as someone here to do sightseeing, the fact that it is located midway between two subway stops is a bit awkward -- it is at least a 15 minute walk to the Lujiazui station, which can prove to be challenging on a hot summer day (that said, you can walk through a series of underground malls to minimize distance outside). In that sense, the Ritz-Carlton's location is better.
