2nd pic taken from level 97 skybridge, following ones from level 100.

Strange to see Oriental Pearl Tower tip from above (468m.!)

Actually, there are specially designed elevators in the SWFC that allows for transporting cars up to the sky deck.

I am planning to visit Shanghai this winter or coming spring.
Wonder where I would like to stay? Either at the Grand hyatt in JIN MAO to have a view of the SWFC, or the Park Hyatt in the SWFC and view of JIN MAO?

Jin Mao GH rates this winter are 1850 while during the summer they can rise to 2400 CNY.

Park Hyatt in the SWFC cost more from 3300 CNY per night.

Jin Mao it is. :/

Just imagine in a few years time we'll be able to look down on the SWFC from the 632 m Shanghai Center!

Crazy.

Is there a glass floor on the highest observation deck like in CN Tower. It would be awesome.

Awesome! These photos show us the real difference between SWFC and other skyscrapers in Pudong.

Pretty reasonable. I'd rather stay in Jin Mao anyway because it has that awesome interior atrium. You can just walk over to SWFC. PLUS you might get a room facing the SWFC. Win win.
