Opened in 1996 in the heart of the Lujiazui finance and trade zone as Pudong’s first five-star hotel—and the first InterContinental in Mainland China—this tower resembles a book with a gleaming glass spine. Its location places it a five-minute walk from Century Avenue metro station and close to Fuxing Road East cross-river tunnel, allowing easy access to the city. Inside, the soaring atrium lobby creates a sense of openness, while contemporary rooms come in light, calm tones; select accommodations come with a sunken tub in the bathroom.
