The tallest building in China
The J Hotel is about 2,000 ft/632 m in the clouds, boasting 165 rooms, of which 34 are suites. Guests can enjouy the swimming pool on the 84th floor, seven different restaurants (including one on the 120th floor – now known as one of the highest restaurants in the world), a luxury spa and a fitness centre during their stays. Every room is equipped with a traditional Chinese tea set and a magnolia petal-shaped bathtub, which explains the price. Nightly rates at J Hotel start from $557/£404 for staterooms to $10,467/£7,600 for larger suites.

The competition is rising
The J in J Hotel stands for Jin Jiang.  Jin Jiang International is one of the leading travel and hospitality conglomerates in China. However, the J Hotel is unlikely to take Guinness’s title of the tallest building in the world, as it goes to buildings that are entirely used as hotels, while the J Hotel only occupies high floors at the Shanghai Tower. The Gevora Hotel in Dubai still holds the Guinness World record for the tallest hotel in the world at 1,169 ft/356 m.

The pandemic has not not stoped hotel brands from competing. The Ritz Carlton in Hong Kong also claims to have both the highest hotel pool and the highest hotel bar in the world. With people eager to travel again, competitive heat in hospitality is back.
