Occupying floors 79 to 93 of the World Financial Center, the Shanghai outlet of Hyatt's most exclusive brand was once the world's tallest hotel but now can't even claim top spot in the city. It is, however, undiminished in its luxury and level of service. The Japenese design theme creates a calming, zenlike cool throughout, from the downstairs entrance (where you'll need to scan your bags for security) to the low-lit hallways linking the guest rooms. The view from the 87th-floor lobby is better than that from the building's official public viewing platform above. Rooms are among the largest in the city, with high ceilings, windowside daybeds, and iPod docking stations. Bathrooms are beautiful, with large rain showers and deep hot tubs, while the infinity pool and spa upstairs enjoy a quite spectacular lookout. Room views are breathtaking—and very much part of what you pay for here—though the hotel is so high that clouds and smog often obsurce the view. To minimize potential disappointment, opt for a room facing the beautiful Jinmao Tower and the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, both of which shine through the gloom at night.
