Park Hyatt Shanghai Hotel Review: It's not often that one of a city's big attractions is a chain hotel, especially when that city is as large as Shanghai. As one of the highest hotels in the world, located on floors 79-93 of the Shanghai World Financial Center, the Park Hyatt Shanghai is its own destination. In the 174 guest rooms, including fourteen suites, guests can take in sweeping views of the city skyline and the Huangpu River. Almost as extensive as the rooms' views is the list of amenities, including day beds, robes, walk-in rain showers, heated bathroom floors, fully stocked private bars, 25-inch or larger flat screen TVs, DVD players, cordless phones, voicemail, individual heat and air-conditioning controls, deep-soaking spa tubs, 24-hour concierge and room service, iPod connections and complimentary Wi-Fi. The observatory is located on level 100 and the lobby on 87. Also on the 87th floor are three venues for food and drink -- Dining Room, Living Room and Bar Level 87. Higher up, on the 91st floor, 100 Century Avenue features Western, Chinese and Japanese cuisine, two bars and a private dining and meeting space. Water's Edge, the hotel's spa (on the 85th floor), has a wellness studio, infinity pool and heated whirlpool spa, steam room and Tai Chi courtyard. Local attractions include The Bund, Shanghai Museum, MoCA Shanghai, M50 Art Zone, Yu Garden and Wen Temple.
