The Park Hyatt (Shanghai): the world’s highest hotel.

The Park Hyatt, Shanghai, has just taken the mantle of the world’s highest hotel. The Jin Mao Tower it’s about 40 meters taller than the Empire State Building in NYC in which the Park Hyatt Shanghai occupies floors 79 to 93 of the Shanghai World Financial Center (the tallest tower in China at a massive 492 meters). Its stand rates start at around US$320 per night and ramp up to nearly US$13K for the stunning Chairman Suite.

There may be hotels with nicer views, but there’s no hotel on Earth that lets you look down from a greater height than the brand spanking new 6-star Park Hyatt Shanghai. Situated on a bend in the Huangpu river, every room at the Park Hyatt makes full use of its positioning, with floor to ceiling glass windows. You can look out on the misty city below, the enormous Jin Mao tower across the road – which is the second tallest building in mainland China – and the Oriental Pearl TV tower.
