Video: Inside Shanghai’s hottest new hotel

SPICENEWS goes inside the hot new Jing An Shangri-La hotel in West Shanghai, a property that's already receiving significant business from Australian PCOs

By James Wilkinson in Shanghai, China

It’s been described as Shangri-La’s global flagship hotel, one that leads the way in room product, meeting facilities, design, food and beverage and service.

And when you first walk in, it’s easy to see why. From the crystals that line to ceiling in the lobby to the cocktails in the hotel’s speakeasy-style 1515 West bar, the Jing An Shangri-La hotel in West Shanghai is flawless.

So, you could say there’s a fair amount of pressure on Australian-American General Manager Ed Brea to ensure everything runs to plan.

Brea, who was born in Hawaii and who has spent the greater part of his career in Queensland, takes it in his stride and runs a property that’s up there with the city’s best.

To find out more about the property’s meeting facilities, the Shanghai market and how the hotel excels in food and beverage, Brea spoke exclusively to SPICE on camera at the property recently.
