Grand Tower at Pudong Shangri-La, East Shanghai redefines exclusivity.
The ultimate experience of sophistication, the Grand Tower at Pudong Shangri-La, East Shanghai celebrates its eighth anniversary in 2013. The Grand Tower is an exclusive hotel within-a-hotel. Eminent Grand Tower guests include heads of state, royalty, and international and local celebrities. Grand Tower residents are entitled to Horizon Club benefits and other exclusive services from 1 September 2013.
At Pudong Shangri-La, East Shanghai, Grand Tower guests have access to the Horizon Club, where they can enjoy personalised check-in and use of exclusive meeting rooms with catered refreshments, in addition to an intimate breakfast experience, evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and 24-hour health club access. This luxury also extends to meeting facilities, including the private 18-seat Summit Room and the China Hall for functions.
Each room and suite features bespoke services, such as personalised in-room dining selections catering to guest preferences and dietary requirements; stationery personalised with the guest’s initials; in-room tailoring; and a pillow menu to ensure a good night’s sleep.
A magnificent feature of the rooms and suites in the Grand Tower is the views of the historical Bund or Pudong’s cityscape that guests wake up to. The Bund has been called a “museum of international architecture” featuring architectural styles, including Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Twenty-six major structures of various heights along approximately 1.5 kilometres of Zhongshan Lu and the Huangpu River have changed little externally since the 1930s. Rooms facing Lujiazui, on the other hand, present the financial heartbeat of China’s pulse while men and women in suits swiftly trot along. Morphing amid the flashing billboards and lasers, new structures compete with the existing ones, such as the tallest building in China.
The Grand Tower is home to The Gallery, which exhibits works from up and coming artists, showcasing more than 30 pieces of artwork, including contemporary photographs, oil paintings and bronze sculptures. Highlights include the bronze sculpture Dancer by Sun Yu Li and the latest oil painting, Shangri-La Pudong, from artist-in-residence Gregory Burns.
