It's ever been the tallest hotel in Shanghai. Now, it's the second one. But absolutely it's the very perfect hotel.The Grand Hyatt Shanghai occupies the top 33 floors of the 87-floor Jin Mao Building,in the centre of Pudong. The dramatic height creates a wonderful panorama of the neighboring Pu Xi District and Huang Pu River. The chic and modern atmosphere, the floor-to-ceiling windows in the guest bedrooms, the Hyatt's five-star attention to detail and fine dining options all make this hotel one of the best Shanghai has to offer.
Unique Quality: You can enjoy the spectacular view in this hotel. It's really amazing!
Supposedly the highest hotel in the world, the Grand Hyatt Shanghai occupies the top 33 floors of the 87-floor Jin Mao Building. The dramatic height creates a wonderful panorama of the neighboring Pu Xi District and Huang Pu River.
Unique Quality: The chic and modern atmosphere, the floor-to-ceiling windows in the guest bedrooms, the Hyatt's five-star attention to detail and fine dining options all make this hotel one of the best Shanghai has to offer.
A must for every visitor to Shanghai is bar Cloud 9, located on the 87th floor. i think it's the highest bar in the world, and of course you have to pay for that exclusuvuty:))
From here the city can be observed in 360 degrees
Unique Quality: All rooms are different but each has stunning view of the city mostly over Huang Pu river.
hotel rooms are on floors 53 through 87 in Jin Mao tower
You will feel like a King with the surrounding in Grand Hyatt Shanghai. We are Singaporean and Chinese by origin. We tried to be nice and spoke Chinese to the Front Desk and felt that we got looked down by the staff. I showed them my Hyatt Diamond Membership card and switched to English and the attention changed.
I can only say that I enjoyed living in the luxury of the hotel but felt like a second class citizen from the treatment the staff gave the westerner then the asians.
When in Grand Hyatt Shanghai, make sure that you speak english and behave that you cannot understand Chinese at all.
Unique Quality: Very nice feel of being in the clouds in the winter when your room is on the 70th floor ! Very interesting breakfast and nice room design. Very polite Elevator staff but hope the staff at front desk will improve. The room features Chinese writing as your headboard. Huge bath and with the bath tub facing the bund.
Directions: Tell Cab that you are going to Jin Mao rather than Hyatt if you want to find your way there.
AVOID MAX BAR across the road at all cost unless you want to pay for the drinks of those fat and old lady who hang around the pub.
A stunning view of the city from the bath tub.
Unique Quality: The worlds highest hotel. Shanghai's highest located bar, restaurant and Pool.
Propably not the best location if you're in Shanghai as a tourist as you have to spend at least half an hour in a taxi everytime youre going somewhere on the other side of the river.
Directions: Located in Pudong
This is one of the best hotels that I have stayed at in the world. First class every step of the way from the moment that you arrive and are welcomed to the moment that you check-out.
Not a hotel that you would stay at if you are afraid of heights. The lobby is on the 54th floor and all of the guest rooms are above the 54th.
Unique Quality: Great view of Shanghai from any hotel room weather permitting. A wide variety of restaurants on-site to pick from. The Italian restaurant is one of the best Italian in the world.
Directions: Pudong Area of Shangahi
Grand Hyatt Shanghai is the tallest hotel in the world (located on the 53rd to 87th floors of the Jin Mao Tower), in the heart of Pudong.
The hotel provide spectacular views of the Bund, Huang Pu River and the city.
Unique Quality: Fantastic View
Cloud9 - excellent dessesrts
Directions: Pu Dong, look for the tallest building
The Grand Hyatt Shanghai occupies floors 53-87 of the Jin Mao Tower. The Tower has an observatory on the 88th floor, at a high of 340.1metres, and is the highest observation deck in China.
The building, built in 1998, is the tallest building in China at 421m, and the fifth tallest building in the world.
I didn`t stay in this hotel, so can`t comment on the value or service.
Unique Quality: Worlds tallest building with a hotel inside. Contains the worlds highest hotel rooms.
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I would recommend this hotel to others if they have the budget for a 5 star hotel. The hotel is located in the Pu Dong district across the Huangpu River River from the Bund. Pu Dong is the new business district of Shanghai. The area is a little quiet and not much to see if you enjoy walking. Almost everywhere you want to go, you have to take a taxi.
Unique Quality: The hotel claims it is the highest hotel in the world. It is located between the 53rd and 87th floors of the tallest building in China. It did not claim it is the tallest hotel in the world because others may dispute its claim as the same building (the Gin Mau Tower) is also an office building. I was staying on the 73rd floor which is the highest I ever slept in my life.
Directions: Pu Dong
Newly built in 2002 this accomodation excells with its great surrounding, very nice rooms and many recommendable restaurants and bars.

Grand Hyatt Hotel Shanghai
This hotel, the tallest in the world, is located in the center of Shanghai's new economic development zone in Pudong. The Grand Hyatt Shanghai (Jinmao kaiyue dajiudian) is situated in the tallest building in China, the second tallest building in Asia and one of the most spectacular buildings in Shanghai.The hotel itself does not even begin until you are almost half way up the building, but the elevators here travel incredibly fast so hold on to your hats! The Hotel enjoys a good geographical location -- 25 km from Hongqiao International Airport, 26 km from Pudong International Airport, 12 km from Shanghai Railway Station and 6 km from the center of the city. Transport over to Pudong from Puxi is now good.
Directions: This Hotel really is like nothing else in the city or indeed in China. If you have the money, (its not cheap for this kind of decadence) and you want, need, or just enjoy total luxury, the Grand Hyatt

I'm gonna spend 3 days in Huanghzu and 4 in Shanghai. can anyone give me suggestions of best possible places to visit / activities to do, so that I can get the real touch of these cities? I do not trust very much the information on the "official" guides.
what could be an interesting destination for a one day trip from Shanghai?
I suppose you mean Hangzhou, not Huanghzu (which I've no idea what is).
What are you more interested in seeing/doing/experiencing? And do you have any special interests? I could recommend lots as I know both cities quite well, but one man's meat can easily be another's poison.
Daytrip from Shanghai: Xitang (http://www.xitang.com.cn -- where Mission Impossible 3 was filmed) or Tongli (http://www.tongli.net -- interesting sex museum there). Both are water villages.
i would like to see something representative for their modernity and, at the same time, some traditonal aspects, if any still "alive" (districts, customs, shows, handicrfts, etc.
