Shanghai: The “highest” luxury hotel in the world has opened its doors in the second-tallest building in the world after Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, in Shanghai, China.
Guests can enjoy the hotel’s seven restaurants, bars, spa, and 84th-floor swimming pool.
A night in a “J Suite” costs over 67,000 yuan ($10,377).
Boasting a restaurant on the 120th floor and 24-hour personal butler service, a luxurious hotel occupies the top floors of the 632-meer (2,073 feet) Shanghai Tower in the city’s financial district.
Elevators whizz guests with deep pockets and a head for heights up the intimidating spiral-like skyscraper at ear-popping speeds of 18 meters per second to the J Hotel’s 165 lavish rooms.
The hotel opening was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic but it has now started receiving well-heeled guests who can call on the services of a dedicated butler at any hour, day or night.
Guests can also enjoy one of the hotel’s seven restaurants, bars, spa, 84th-floor swimming pool, and all the other usual trappings of a top-notch hotel.
Naturally, such luxury does not come cheap. To celebrate its opening J Hotel is offering a “special experience rate” of 3,088 yuan ($450) a night, but prices for its 34 suites go sky-high.
A night in a “J Suite”, complete with crystal chandeliers and sauna, this Saturday costs over 67,000 yuan ($10,377).
The hotel is part of Jin Jiang International Hotels, a major Chinese state-owned group, and officially opened on Saturday.
