The Portman Ritz Carlton Shanghai

The Portman, one of two Ritz-Carlton properties in the pearl of Asia, combines contemporary design with inventive local cultural aesthetics, all set in the thriving Nanjing road amongst incredible shopping, entertainment and historic sites. This luxury property offers a wonderful integrated experience for all the family including special services for young guests under the Ritz Kids program

The Look

Opened 1998, the Portman was one of the first luxury hotels to open in China. Gensler recently refreshed the spectacular lobby with its floor to ceiling windows, soaring wooden columns, and local craftwork.


There are many excellent suites available for families including an outstanding two-bedroom penthouse.

  • This has an impressive dining room, an extensive contemporary art collection, and views across the Shanghai skyline.


Culinary highlights at the Ritz-Carlton are,

  • The Portman's restaurant, serving inventive twists on Asian and International cuisine.
  • Ritz Bar and Lounge, which evokes the glamour of 1920's Shanghai. This is one of the best destinations in Shanghai to enjoy a classic afternoon tea or a delicious cocktail from one of the Ritz Carlton's expert mixologists.
  • A delicious children's menu is available for young guests in both destinations.


The Portman Ritz-Carlton offers a full range of recreation and relaxation services and amenities.

  • The day spa specialises in restorative modern Chinese inspired treatments, and the Health Club is one of the premier fitness destinations in Shanghai.
  • Included are both an indoor and outdoor pool, full gym, steam bath, sauna and whirlpool.
  • Aerobics, pilates and squash classes are held within the adjoining gym rooms, and personal training is available on request.
  • The indoor/outdoor pool here is one of the most impressive hotel pools in Shanghai and is perfect for swimming sessions for fitness and recreation.

Young Guests

The Ritz-Carlton experience for lucky young guests is sublime from check-in to check-out.

  • This begins with a signature check-in experience, and also includes a property scavenger hunt, in-room amenities, an exclusive backpack, and an in-room camping experience.
  • Ritz-Carlton has created an industry-leading children's program (Ritz Kids) with the intention to include young guests into every facet of the property in inventive ways.
  • This is an incredible service that we highly recommend and is centred around curiosity, enticement, and discovery.


This property is awarded a Stay Someday Elite rating, as a property of a very high level of luxury and excellent services, amenities, accommodations and offers available for families.

The Portman Ritz-Carlton Shanghai is a charming and very well appointed property for families in Shanghai. The combination of well-selected services and amenities of the highest standard makes the Portman a joy to experience.
