Park Hyatt Shanghai
The tallest hotel in mainland China occupies floors 79-93 of the Shanghai
World Financial Center, the 101-story skyscraper made by Mori Building, developer of Tokyo
’s Roppongi Hills complex. As expected, any room or public area in the property likely has jaw-dropping views. Interiors mirror the aesthetics of a cultured modern Chinese residence, with sequences of gates, halls, and chambers as thoroughfares, and earth tones complementing natural materials. Monochromatic rooms have walls finished in linen, lacquer, and slatted-wood panels, with generous daybeds, 24-hour butler service, and plasma televisions embedded in the bathrooms’ vanity mirrors. But really, no amenity can top the insane views.
