Latest Landmark Added to Shanghai's Skyline with JW Marriott Marquis

JW Marriott Marquis

My boat drifted down the Huangpu River at night. A crisp breeze swirled around me as I gazed upon the dazzling skyline that spanned both sides of the river. Impressive skyscrapers were lit up and sparkling as far as the eye could see, illuminating the night sky. 

Shanghai’s massive skyline is known for being ever-changing, and there is a new landmark addition to it- the spectacular JW Marriott Marquis.

JW Marriott Marquis

This highly anticipated hotel is the first JW Marriott Marquis Hotel to open in China. Designed by the architectural minds behind Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, this distinctive 39-story hotel complements its surroundings and brings fresh new energy to the district of Pudong. 

The forward-thinking design of the hotel was inspired by the surrounding neighborhood, the city’s rich history and unique culture, as well as the vitality of the Huangpu River it sits upon. Water elements inspired by the river seamlessly unify the exterior and interior of the building with its curves and textures.

JW Marriott Marquis’ dramatic atrium plays with light and color, stunning guests from the moment they enter the building. Sustainable exterior glass panels slant 12-17 degrees to provide guests a broader view of the city’s impressive landscape.

JW Marriott Marquis Pudong boasts 515 guestrooms, each elegantly styled with sophisticated design elements and a mixture of modern meets classic. Soothing cream and crisp white colors fill the room, along with exquisite marble, rich fabrics, wood, and floor to ceiling glass throughout to recreate the comforts found at home. Every room is equipped with the latest luxury amenities, catering to the needs of both business and leisure travelers.

JW Marriott Marquis is inspired by principles of mindfulness and touchpoints of intentional and reflective focus, which JW Marriott is recognized for. Guests can unwind and relax at the heated indoor infinity pool with floor-to-ceiling windows on the pool deck or visit the spa for a relaxing treatment.
