Grand Hyatt Hotel, Jin Mao Tower, Shanghai




The Grand Hyatt Shanghai is a hotel located in Shanghai, China, in the Pudong area, the financial hub of the city. The 555 room hotel occupies the top 36 floors of the 88-story Jin Mao Tower. The hotel was the highest hotel in the world until the Park Hyatt opened in the neighbouring Shanghai World Financial Center. The hotel features a dramatic 33-story atrium, one of the highest in the world.

The hotel offers spectacular views of The Bund, a stretch of historical buildings restored to their former glory, along the famous Huangpu River. 18 different room styles are offered, all boasting marble baths, headboards enscribed with handwritten Chinese calligraphy and some with large Terra Cotta replica horses.

Additionally, the world's longest laundry chute runs down the full length of the tower to the basement, and incorporates buffers to slow down the laundry during its descent. The Hyatt's famous barrel-vaulted atrium starts at the 56th floor and extends upwards to the 87th. Lined with 28 annular corridors and staircases arrayed in a spiral, it is 27 m in diameter with a clear height of approximately 115 m.
