As more and more luxury hotels pop up in the skyrocketing Pudong area, Park Hyatt Shanghai maintains an aura of simplicity combined with an underlying tone of lavishness. Instead of gaudy, overt extravagance, you’ll find the muted elegance of a private residence here. Shades of gray, cream and chocolate brown decorate the sleek, minimalist Shanghai hotel, though you’ll encounter maze-like hidden doors and unusual art, like the bone-colored Chinese porcelain figurines who greet you with a bow and smile at the elevators in the 87th-floor lobby. The clientele is less touristy than at other hotels in the area, whether in the lobby area taking afternoon tea or having a cocktail in the intimate Shanghai Lounge. The hushed tone throughout most of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is a welcome reprieve.
