Marquis Hotel Shanghai Pudong is making the first JW Marriott Marquis hotel in China.

Owned by China’s Luneng Group, this 515-room luxury property is centrally located in the city’s main business centers and visitor attractions; including the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center, the Mercedes-Benz Cultural Arena and Shanghai Oriental Sports Center. Shanghai Disney Resort, Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, and Shanghai Pudong International Airport are also within easy reach.

Designed by  Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM), the hotel offers glass panels unanimously slant 12-17 degrees to provide guests a broader view of the city’s landscape. A heated indoor infinity pool offers a space to unwind and relax and features luxury amenities, from state-of-the-art Dyson hairdryers in changing rooms to floor-to-ceiling windows on the pool deck offering magnificent views of the Huangpu River. An on-site Spa showcases indulgent treatments that revitalize the body and enrich the mind and spirit.

Twelve multi-functional rooms and banquet venues offer 34,445 sq. ft. of meeting space. The Junior Marquis and Grand Marquis Ballrooms provide space for 600 and 800 guests respectively and can be divided into individual customizable spaces with separate entrances to suit a variety of events. Two meeting rooms are separated by a live culinary theater with bespoke glass walls adjustable from opaque to transparent on demand, making live cooking shows or cooking classes a unique selling point.

“For years, Shanghai has been deemed one of the most iconic cities in China and in the world, drawing in luxury travelers of different backgrounds that call for premium hospitality and personalized service,” said Henry Lee, Chief Operations Officer & Managing Director, Greater China, Marriott International. “We are thrilled to announce the grand opening of JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Shanghai Pudong, as it stands not only for the latest milestone in the expansion of the JW Marriott luxury portfolio in China, but a new chapter for exceptional programs we are bringing to China’s luxury travelers.”
