Located near the Maglev railway, Century Park , the SNIEC exhibition facility, and the future Shanghai Disney Resort (set to open in 2015), the Kerry Hotel Pudong is a Shangri-La property. It is part of the Kerry Parkside complex that also contains office space, serviced residences, a gym, spa, and shopping mall.
The 31-story hotel occupies one of the two towers and contains beautifully furnished rooms as well as ample meeting space and ballroom facilities. The on-site dining concept is called The MEET, The COOK, and The BREW and is an interconnected steakhouse, marketplace-style restaurant, and microbrewery.
Kerry Pudong is widely used by delegations attending exhibitions at SNIEC, but is laidback enough to be a good choice for leisure visitors who want to be away from the downtown bustle.
