Some occasions demand the very best, and high-end travelers know that luxury hotels are the best way to experience a city's growth, elite, and future. The decadent digs of Shanghai do it up right. First-class amenities, swanky facilities, gracious staff, a massage or two: this is how to truly unwind. Get away from it all and surrender to these professionals of pampering. You might not want to go home.
The Grand Hyatt Shanghai and the Portman Ritz-Carlton are the two most well known 5-star hotels in Shanghai. The Hyatt Shanghai hails from the top 50 floors of the Jin-Mao Tower, once China's tallest and still boasting the best views of the city. Meanwhile, for convenience, luxury and quality the Shanghai Ritz is right downtown and extremely accessible.
JW Marriott and the Regent are likewise wonderful 5-star options with above average hospitality and service ratings. You'll find everything you need and more at these hotels, and their prime locations mean you'll be enjoying more of Shanghai.
The Westin and Renaissance Hotels are as delightful as any 5-star option, as is the Pudong Shangri-La Hotel. You'll find gold plated chandeliers, granite floors and in-room bathrooms that make even the most wealthy person smile with glee and awe.
Shanghai has a lot to offer, especially if you can afford to partake in the 5-star quality the city has on display. From the boutique charm of 88 Xintiandi to the expected luxury of the Royal Meridian, you can't go wrong with these 5-star hotel suggestions.
