If you're going in February 2016, it may work out

The hotel will not be a Four Seasons, there is already one in Pudong about 5 minutes walk away.

It will be Shanghai Tower J Hotel

http://www.extravaganzi.com/shanghai...-open-in-2014/

The establishment, a new brand of Shanghai Jin Jiang International Hotels (Group) Co., Ltd. (Jin Jiang Hotels), will span the 84th to 110th floors of the Shanghai Tower. The hotel will feature 258 luxury guestrooms with the hotel lobby located on the 101st floor. Jin Jiang Hotels said it will be the world’s tallest luxury hotel when it opens in late 2014 or early 2015, surpassing the Park Hyatt Shanghai, which currently holds the honor.


Agree with the poster above though it will not be open any time soon.

Lol, damn Wikipedia and its BS facts. That's where I got that the hotel will be Four Seasons from the Shanghai Tower page

Yes indeed Wiki is full of BS. The article contradicts itself, saying it will be a Four Seasons then referencing an article with the Shanghia J Hotel.

One question, those black rectangles (space without cladding) at the top of the crown are they supposed to remain like this ?

i guess they are some kind of aeration holes but it doesn't look very aesthetic...

The one thing this tower does not lack... is aesthetics.

From checking the render, there might be some glass behind it.
