Radisson Blu Hotel Shanghai New World Review

A prominent landmark not only on People's Square, but also on the Shanghai skyline, the Radisson Blu is topped by what looks for all the world like a flying saucer. It holds the hotel's most famous feature, a revolving restaurant called Epicure on 45. Rooms are divided between the lower Park Tower and the higher City Tower. Park Tower rooms are more expensive but have the best views, facing People's Square. Though the hotel caters primarily to business travelers, the suites—with huge living rooms, kitchen/dining rooms, and spacious baths—are convenient for families. In addition, most have flat-screen TVs. Ask about special packages.
