Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai

Shanghai's sleek sparkler
VERIFIED LUXURY
The 55-story Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai is a 21st-century glass-and-steel tower that blends in with its trio of sky-high neighbors — Shanghai World Financial Center, Jinmao Tower and Shanghai Tower.

Head inside and you’ll find the Pudong hotel’s gleaming, quiet lobby is a world away from the busy boulevard outside. Take a seat on the lobby’s plush beige and gray armchairs and sofas and peruse the coffee-table books stacked next to bright floral arrangements.

Leading from the lobby to the second floor is an elegant double-height spiral staircase that’s perfect for grand wedding photos.

Four Seasons is home to a world-class spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and a top-floor infinity pool with sweeping views of the surrounding skyscrapers.

Within the hotel, you will find two restaurants — Camelia, which serves French-influenced Western food, and Shang-Xi, the hotel’s Chinese restaurant.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• Camila, the Shanghai hotel’s signature all-day dining restaurant, turns out French-influenced dishes (such as grilled lobster with garlic and eggplant fondue) whipped up by chefs trained at Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris.

• Though the hotel is located in Shanghai’s central business district, it is also fairly close to most major tourist attractions, such as the iconic Bund, Super Brand and IFC malls, and conveniently also a short walk from Dongchang Road metro station, on line 2.

• Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai’s Four-Star Flare Spa has the honor of being the only Guerlain-branded spa in China; all of the spa’s products come from the respected French perfume house.
Things to Know
• The hotel’s boutique spa offers a short list of treatments for men, such as the manly License to Thrill package, a manicure and pedicure paired with a shaken — not stirred — martini. 

• Use the iPad in your room to order room service, extra bath products and maintenance services, or take it out into the public spaces to take advantage of the free wifi found throughout the hotel.

• Walk or take the subway one stop to Lujiazui; you can enter glittery IFC mall through exit 6, without ever going outside, to shop at stores like Hermès and Bulgari, and dine at a variety of international restaurants.

• The luxury hotel’s Camila restaurant is one of the only restaurants in the city to offer al fresco dining, a welcome amenity during the temperate spring and fall months.
The Rooms
• The luxury hotel’s 187 spacious, well-appointed guest rooms have a similar color scheme — neutral beige and gray tones with sharp red accent pillows and reading lamps that seamlessly blend Art Deco and chinoiserie.

• You’ll want to sit down to check out all of the technology available in the room, including wired and wireless Internet access, satellite television, and iPad Minis.

• The Shanghai hotel offers memorable vistas from every room—one one side tall glittering buildings, on the other more old-school rows upon rows of apartment buildings, their roofs a colorful mix of red, orange and blue.. The best views are from the junior suites, all corner rooms.

• Elsewhere in the room, the well-proportioned bathrooms have separate shower and toilet cubicles, double sinks and Lorenzo Villoresi Firenze bath products whose bright red bottles stand out on the marble countertops.
The Look
• The first thing you notice about the Five-Star hotel’s design is that all the surfaces are gleaming — the beige marble floor, the hanging installation of twisting metal strips that backs the reception desk and the double-height staircase that begs to be sauntered down.

• Chinese restaurant Shang-Xi has a theme of precious stones — in the jade private dining room, everything is that prized shade of green.

• Western restaurant Camelia’s design scheme is among the more colorful spaces in the hotel, with golden-yellow chairs and red accents.

• The room décor is subdued and classic, a mix of crisp white bedding and grays light and dark, with sleek black desks and red lamps and throw pillows. 

• For an extra Asian element, along the guest room floor hallways hang four abstract paintings, each showing a Chinese character for north, south, east or west.
