The world’s highest hotel is in Shanghai

Shanghai is now the proud host of the highest hotel in the world !

Park Hyatt Shanghai is a sophisticated modern Chinese residence occupying the 79th to 93rd floors of the Shanghai World Financial Center (SWFC), otherwise known as “The Vertical Complex City”.

Situated in the heart of the Lujiazui business district in Pudong, the 492-metre SWFC, with its 101-storeys, will be one of the tallest buildings in the world, making Park Hyatt Shanghai the highest hotel in the world.

It is due to open in Autumn 2008. If you ever visit the hotel, make sure to stop by Cloud 9, a stunning bar located on the 87th floor that provides loungers with spectacular views of the skyline.
