Spanning 66 floors and 728 rooms in the heart of China’s economic powerhouse, Hilton Worldwide’s luxury brand has pulled out all the stops for its latest opening.

The new Conrad-branded hotel boasts superb amenities in an unbeatable location.

A milestone opening

Conrad Shanghai is now welcoming guests into its 66-storey, 728-room space within the prestigious tourism and business district People’s Square, close to many of the city’s biggest attractions. As well as representing a significant achievement for Hilton Worldwide in its own right, the launch further strengthens the company’s partnership with the property’s owning company, Shimao Hotel Management Group.

“We are thrilled to build on our robust luxury growth in Asia Pacific with the launch of the first Conrad in Shanghai, joining our 17 luxury hotels in Greater China with a further ten under construction,” said Alan Watts, president, Asia Pacific, Hilton.

“Our growth momentum demonstrates the strength and resilience of Hilton’s award-winning luxury brands amidst a dynamic market and sophisticated customer expectations. At the same time, it is a testament to our delivery to our partners, and the 11 trading hotels we have with the prestigious Shimao Hotel Management Group – who share our optimism for China’s luxury travel segment.”

Tyrone Tang, chairman and CEO of Shanghai Shimao Hotel Management Company and CEO of Shimao Star Hotels Group, added: “We are proud to elevate the success of our longstanding partnership with Hilton by bringing the second Conrad Hotels & Resorts property to fruition. Today’s milestone opening of Conrad Shanghai is a celebration of our achievement in our journey together. It also signifies a new chapter for Shimao Festival City that reaffirms its status as the city’s most coveted address.”

Fusing modern design with local tradition

To help create a sense of place, inspiration drawn from Chinese traditions is woven throughout the hotel’s glamorous design. Distinct design details include a Chinese rooftop cornice suspended as a lobby centrepiece, the use of this motif throughout, traditional calligraphy art and a colour palette drawing on the five elements.

Conrad Shanghai’s guestrooms come with smart connectivity, bath products by luxury brand Byredo and floor-to-ceiling windows with views over Puxi and the Bund. And its 60 luxurious suites, including a presidential suite, come with residential touches and access to the level 44 executive lounge.

The dining options here draw on global influences, from the Mediterranean coast to Paris’ bistros and China’s banquets. Cocktails are served with a view at the sky-high lounge and events are hosted in a 2,500 sq m pillarless space, including an 864 sq m ballroom and 13 meeting rooms, as well as Hu’s Penthouse and Hu’s Atelier on the 64th-floor.

“The latest addition to the Conrad portfolio in the heart of Shanghai is a shining example of how we are looking at every opportunity to bring our meaningful hospitality and intuitive service to iconic destinations,” said Nils-Arne Schroeder, global brand head for Conrad Hotels & Resorts and vice president of Luxury & Lifestyle for Hilton in Asia Pacific. “I am confident the bold design and modern sensibilities of Conrad Shanghai, paired with our personalised service, will create enriching experiences that will truly inspire luxury travellers from around the world.”
