Shanghai's Gran Meliá Hotel in Pudong is changing hands and is scheduled, we hear from e Travel Blackboard, to become a Kempinski.

Originally opened in February 2010, the hotel was rebranded as Grand Kempinski Hotel Shanghai earlier this month.

Grand Kempinski Hotel Shanghai is located in the Lujiazui financial section of Pudong and has views of the Huangpu River and the Shanghai skyline.
