I was in China for business back in April and this was the conference hotel. Beautiful, austere, modern, efficient, friendly, elegant. Best place I've stayed at. Terrific location on top of a subway stop that allowed me to visit anyplace in Shanghai. The breakfast and dinner buffets are to die for. When I visit China again I will stay here again. Though tipping is not generally recognized in China, you'll want to tip here. Superb staff. This spa is other worldly. I almost expected to see Sean Connery working out next to me. I imagine my buff body probably intimidated him though.

The Maglev train station is just a short walk away for speedy seven-minute transfers to/from Pudong International Airport. Construction of the Himalayas Centre started in 2006 under the direction of world-renowned architect Arata Isozaki, who also created the Barcelona Olympic Stadium and Los Angeles MoMA. Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel opened in March 2011. Inspired by Chinese cultural elements and traditional feng shui principles, architect Arata Isozaki designed the landmark Himalayas Center, where Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel is located. A three-dimensional Urban Forest comprising dramatically sculpted columns defines the central section of the Himalayas Centre. It also carries an important loading capacity function and provides an arresting entrance to the Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel. Tien Shu Patterned Walls Wrapped around the base of the two towers presents a conceptual interpretation of ancient Chinese characters from the Tien Shu by Cang Jie. Special windows have also been custom made to subtly insert between the characters allowing light to flood the hotel interiors.

The cylindrical atrium stretches 14 levels through the centre of the tower. ... more less
