Okay. For real. I’m glad to be in Hong Kong. Internet in China was sketchy at best. The government blocked news, blogs, facebook, etc… So I’ll be doing some recapping of my trip.
On the 23 of Dec my good friend Seth flew out to join us and to see a little bit of Asia. All Seth talked about on skype was the second tallest building in world, the Shanghai World Financial Center. While reading his lonely planet details to us he mentioned the world’s tallest hotel. The luxurious Park Hyatt Shanghai located from floors 79 – 93. We decided to surprise him with our little suite.
A tip about getting room upgrades: ASK. The day before the stay, I emailed the rooms manager and explained that three people in one room is kind of cramp. -signed, my wife’s name (I booked the hotel with her account). A very polite email was shot back telling her (me) that I should trust that they would give their elite status members the best rooms. Well, after we were escorted to our room we noticed a nice hand signed card addressed to Mrs. Yoder with fancy cookies and a basket of fruit waiting for us.
Simply put, this was an amazing hotel with amazing service.
