The best time of year to visit Shanghai, and thus JW Marriott Shanghai at Tomorrow Square, is when the city’s weather is at its best. All luxury hotels in Shanghai have excellent heating and cooling systems, but the city’s smaller restaurants and shops do not. The winters in Shanghai are cold and damp; the summers are hot and humid. Shanghai shines in late March, April, May and June, and again in September, October and early November. The sky is blue, the sun is shining and a pleasant breeze makes sightseeing a treat. On the flipside, summer allows you to take full advantage of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s seventh-floor rooftop pool, which offers sweeping views of the city and is a hot spot for Shanghai’s young locals. The pool, naturally, is only open in the warmer months and makes the city’s summers much more bearable. Hotel rates are at their lowest in the off season (winter), so if you want a deal this is a good time to come.
