Here is the overview for this report: All in Business, All for $200 And 30,000 US AIR Miles
Getting There: If you are arriving at Pudong airport, the fastest/most convenient way to get to the Bund is to take the Maglev then a friendly taxi from there. Be sure to print out the name of your hotel in Mandarin characters and show it to the driver.
Following the visa mess up, I had to change my plans from two nights at Hyatt on the Bund to basically one long evening. Hyatt on the Bund is a Category 4 hotel which makes it eligible for a free night’s stay if you are a Chase Hyatt card holder. I used cash and points which was 7500 GoldPassport + $100 + 15% service charge, a great deal considering for Halloween weekend the rooms were going for $330 a night.
Hyatt on the Bund as the name makes apparent is in a great location: the Bund. The Bund faces Pudong Skyline which in my opinion is the best in the world.
The room overlooked the Huangpu River and Pudong. Besides the next morning, I did not get to enjoy it too much. Given the beauty and location of the hotel, it is quite a shame I was only here for a few hours making this review less than extraordinary. Nevertheless, I did take some great pictures and will certainly return both to my former home, Shanghai, and Hyatt on the Bund.
