Park Hyatt Shanghai offers planned activities, especially on holidays. On Halloween, for example, the luxury hotel threw a party where the staff dressed up in costumes ranging from local Chinese celebrities to American pop stars. At Christmastime, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel has an unobtrusive tree subtly decorated and special items on the menu at Dining Room and the Pantry, and Chinese New Year’s makes it a great place to watch the fireworks over the Bund. One planned activity that isn’t related to the holidays is the daily tai chi class; from 8 to 9 a.m., an in-house tai chi master teaches in the poolside courtyard. Otherwise, the quiet hotel avoids loud, maddening activities so as not to disturb tired business travelers.
