Grand Hyatt Shanghai has been open since 1999 and underwent room redecorations in December 2011. Formerly bulky furniture and electronics, such as old-school phones and televisions, have been replaced with slimmer, sleeker versions. All rooms now have LCD plasma TVs, chic glass desks and mid-century-inspired desk chairs. The lobby and restaurants have not been renovated since the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s opening in 1999, and while the furniture doesn’t exactly have a modern look, it also doesn’t look dated. Thanks to walls of windows in every room, all the spaces in the hotel are flooded with light, giving off an open, airy vibe.
