Business travellers visiting China’s financial capital can now stay at the luxurious St. Regis Shanghai Jingan hotel which blends Western and Chinese design styles to give the property feelings of both familiarity and foreignness, regardless of where you’re from.

Meander upstairs to one of 55 residences, 66 suites or 370 guestrooms to find modern and well-appointed lodgings…

… or book yourself into the 650 square metre Presidential Suite, complete with a glass ceiling on the top floor of the hotel and outdoor terraces with skyline views, plus a full kitchen, dining area and lounge room.

Situated on West Beijing Road in the city’s Jingan District, the hotel is a short distance from the Shanghai Exhibition Centre – popular for meetings and events – with the former French Concession, The Bund and Xintiandi all within driving distance.

When you’re off the clock, the Shanghai Natural History Museum is a five-minute walk away, with the Jingan Temple, Yu Garden, People’s Square and People’s Park also accessible by car, along with shopping destinations Plaza 66, Westgate Mall and the Shanghai Centre.

“The St. Regis Shanghai Jingan will redefine the local luxury hospitality landscape by blending the rituals and traditions of St. Regis, such as its legendary butler service, with a design and culinary experience that highlights the history and culture of Shanghai,” said Chris Tsoi, General Manager of the St. Regis Shanghai Jingan hotel.

Guests can enjoy meals and drinks at the hotel’s six distinct restaurants and bars: Seki-tei featuring a live teppanyaki cooking station; Bespoke being all about seasonal and customised dining; Yan Ting offering refined Cantonese cuisine; or Social where brunch, buffet and more live cooking stations are the order of the day.

Joining those is The Drawing Room for the signature St. Regis afternoon tea, and The St. Regis Bar where fine wines, rare spirits, Champagnes and handcrafted cocktails are poured and served, including a signature ‘Mary Jing’ cocktail, blending Shanghainese spices and local ingredients like dried preserved figs with vodka and dried Osmanthus flowers for scent and flavour.

Also on offer: a 24-hour fitness centre, indoor swimming pool, a day spa and the brand’s signature butler service, with guests able to earn and redeem Starpoints via the Starwood Preferred Guest hotel loyalty program.
