Shanghai hotels are rising ever higher—and top of the pile is this deluxe cloud buster on the 79th through 93rd floors of the 101-story, 1,615-foot Shanghai World Financial Center in Pudong. The Park Hyatt Shanghai can now claim the twin titles of world's highest hotel and world's highest restaurant. New York City–based Tony Chi created the interiors to resemble a sophisticated modern Chinese residence, hence the series of gates, halls, and chambers. The lobby itself is on the 87th floor and the spa and fitness center have prime city views from the 85th level. The 174 rooms are an impressive size (an average room is 645 square feet), plus there is 24-hour butler service, a technology concierge, and a walk-in dressing room and flat-screen TV in the bathroom and bedroom. The hotel's highest highlight is 100 Century Avenue, an integrated three-level fine-dining restaurant (serving Western, Chinese, and Japanese cuisine) and lounge bar on the 91st to 93rd floors.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Asia's most vertiginous hotel is on floors 79 through 93 of the Shanghai World Financial Center, in the Pudong district. All 174 generous-sized rooms provide jaw-dropping Shanghai or Pudong panoramas, cloudlike bedding, and cashmere-soft carpets, and come with extra touches such as diagrams to explain the light switches and even motion sensor-operated heated commode seats. Owner Minoru Mori, who built Toyko's groundbreaking Roppongi Hills complex, influenced the art here, which includes hundreds of kitsch ceramics by Liu Jianhua hanging from the ceiling of 100 Century Avenue, a highly recommended showplace restaurant on the ninety-first floor. Two additional restaurants and 12 elegant private dining rooms offer everything from comfort food such as soup dumplings to formal banquets. —2009 Hot List

When to go: September and October's clear skies mean optimal vistas.

Which room to book: Pudong-facing rooms—made charming with rooftops painted red, green, and blue—are underrated.
