Sponsored page. This property is not Star Rated.
Swissôtel Grand Shanghai is situated in the humming Jing’an business district. With 467 rooms, modern European design, four restaurants, a bar, health club and spa, as well as conference and banquet facilities, the hotel is outfitted to handle those who are solely in town on business. But it also accommodates travelers who want to explore downtown Shanghai’s fascinating eccentricities. Rooms command stunning views of the city’s quickly rising skyline, and the décor embraces a holistic East-meets-West balance.
