The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong, designed by architect Cesar Pelli, has just opened. It's the luxury 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 design and style of the hotel is contemporary, with hints of new interpretations of 1930’s Shanghai Art Deco. This gives a great sense of place to the hotel as guest rooms and restaurants embrace sweeping views over The Bund.
