Park Hyatt Shanghai

Taking minimalist sophistication to new heights
You can’t miss Park Hyatt Shanghai — its towering screwdriver-like structure is one of the tallest skyscrapers in the city. But you won’t find that flash inside the quiet Shanghai hotel, where gray, cream and chocolate-brown hues and dark wood give it a sleek, Zen-like aura. The hotel keeps it interesting with maze-like hidden doors, striking contemporary art, patches of grass in some of the rooms and a lovely infinity pool that feels like it’s on top of the world.

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. The clientele is less touristy than at other hotels in the area, whether in the Living Room taking afternoon tea or having a cocktail.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • You can’t miss the hotel in Shanghai’s Pudong-side skyline; the building looks like a screwdriver. Architecturally speaking, the luxury hotel was crafted to use every inch of glass to its fullest, displaying the entire splendor of the city below.
  • The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel sits atop one of the city's highest skyscrapers — the Shanghai World Financial Center — in the heart of the Financial District. Park Hyatt Shanghai takes up the 79th to 93rd floors.
  • On the 85th floor, you will encounter Water’s Edge, a relaxation zone featuring an overflowing 20-meter infinity pool, a spa with two treatment rooms, and a fitness center. Take in an expansive view of the Huangpu River from the loungers alongside the windows.

  • While you take in the views from the 87th-floor Dining Room offers great views, savor a mix of modern Shanghainese, Zhejiang and Jiangsu cuisines. The contemporary Chinese restaurant also provides a selection of rare teas, seasonal beverages and Chinese wines. 

  • On the 91st floor, decide whether you want to dine on the east or west side. Go west to find 100 Century Avenue Steakhouse, which skews traditional steakhouse fare and features top beef, poultry and other proteins. Head east for 100 Century Avenue Cantonese’s dim sum and authentic Lingnan-style dishes.

Things to Know
  • Interior designer Tony Chi — who has worked with chefs Alain Ducasse and Wolfgang Puck — gave the hotel a sleek, Zen vibe with gray, cream and chocolate-brown hues and lots of dark wood. But it stays interesting with hidden doors and playful art, like Beijing artist Gao Xiaowu’s three bald porcelain figures who are ready with a smile and bow when you get off the lobby elevator.
  • For business travelers, the Shanghai hotel’s business center is conveniently adjacent to the lobby and open 24 hours with extensive services such as international and domestic courier delivery (and small touches like Post-its). 
The Rooms
  • The minimalist guest rooms at Park Hyatt Shanghai are intentionally designed, using every inch of space carefully.
  • The interior design matches the rest of the sleek Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel: It’s filled with grays and white with accents like a lacquered wall, marble countertops and contemporary artwork.
  • Each room utilizes the view to the maximum with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking either downtown or the new Pudong area.
