Though we could barely take our eyes off the view of Pudong while touring a room, we did look down long enough to notice a long, shiny spigot at about shin-level that piqued our curiosity. When we asked about it, we found out that, in addition to full bathtubs and showers with both overhead and handheld shower heads in a glassed-off section of the bathroom, every room in the hotel comes equipped with a special little foot shower head to douse your aching dogs. Those are the kinds of little touches that we find irresistible…and no, we’re not foot fetishists.
Apart from the room features, we also found out that the hotel is one of the first in the brand to be hosting a special Masters of Food and Wine week November 22-26 featuring world-famous chefs like Alain Ducasse and Gerard Basset, as well as Chinese master chefs collaborating on extravagant meals. The first will be in Zurich in September, with more following throughout the year.
Rates at the Park Hyatt Shanghai start at 1,840 CNY or $285 a night.
