After dedicating 10 years to the masterful craft, opulent design, and detailed curation of J Hotel, and with delays brought on by the pandemic, China’s tallest hotel has finally opened its doors to guests with a penchant for impeccable taste.

Each suite is situated on strategic areas of the building, each offering bird’s eye views of the beautiful Shanghai skyline and the nearby horizon, where the Shanghai Hongqiao Airport to the West meets the Yangtze River.
