view web site ›'s insider take:

The Grand Hyatt Shanghai takes up the top 34 floors of the monolithic 88-story Jin Mao Tower—the fifth-tallest building in the world—so you can imagine the views: vertigo-inducing panoramas over the city's skyscrapers and streets, abetted by the ubiquitous floor-to-ceiling windows. (Request a west-facing room for views of the Bund, the Oriental Pearl Tower, and the rest of the Shanghai skyline's kitschy excess.) If you can tear your gaze from the neon spectacle outside, you'll find the hotel's interiors are pretty sumptuous: All 555 rooms have contemporary furniture (lots of glass, lacquered wood, and velvety neutral-toned upholstery) accented by traditional Eastern artwork. The marble baths have multiple-head "shower towers" that engulf you in water and mist; if these aren't enough of a full-body experience, you can head to the steam baths and hot tubs at the on-site spa. The hotel's dozen restaurants, bars, and clubs include the Patio, a 33-story atrium where you can listen to live jazz; Cloud 9, on the 87th floor, where the views will make you dizzier than any cocktail; and Club Jin Mao, where you can sample local specialties, such as deep-fried eel with honey soy sauce and braised bean curd with hairy crab roe. While the Pudong location is oriented more for business than pleasure, the Line 2 Metro station is just a five-minute walk away, and a horde of cheap cabs waits outside to whisk you across the Huangpu River to the Old City.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
Set in the 88-story postmodern Jin Mao Tower, this hotel with a 33-story atrium has "spectacular views of the Huangpu," and claims to have the world's longest laundry chute. Many of the "positively palatial rooms" have red lacquer headboards, Ming-style cabinets, and floor-to-ceiling windows: "You won't want to sleep, watching the river at night is mesmerizing." Cloud 9 lounge sits on the eighty-seventh floor.

Its worth going to once, just for the views both inside and outside the hotel. The rooms are a bit masculine and dull / dated, although I liked the room I had with... more
