The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong, is the hotel brand’s second property in the city, and its seventh in China.
The 285-room Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong occupies the top 18 floors of the Shanghai ifc South Tower.
The opening was planned this month to coincide with the World Expo beign held in the city. More than 2,500 sq m of meeting and conference space on the third level includes a 1,135 sq m Grand Ballroom.
Area vice president and general manager Rainer Burkle said: As Shanghai has been experiencing exponential growth and many multi-national companies have opened in Pudong, we find it strategically viable for The Ritz-Carlton to be located on both sides of Huangpu River. While The Ritz-Carlton Portman, Shanghai at Puxi has established its name over the past decade, I have no doubt that The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong will prove itself to be another quintessential business and social centre for domestic and international travellers alike.
