Shanghai Tower J Hotel on course to set the world record.

Jin Jiang Hotels will span the 84th to 110th floors of the Shanghai Tower, which will rise 632 meters, or 121 storeys, making it the world’s tallest hotel.

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.

The Shanghai Tower is located in the central business district of Lujiazui, Pudong district, near the Shanghai World Financial Center and Jin Mao Tower.

The 828-meter-high Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which opened early this year, is the world's tallest skyscraper. But its hotel, fashion designer Giorgio Armani's first, only occupies the 160-level structure's lower stories.

The Shanghai Tower J Hotel will also challenge the new Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong expected to open next year, according to news sources.

However, 4Hoteliers has reported in August that the Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong will be the tallest hotel in the world when it opens in the first quarter of 2011.

The 312-guestroom hotel will occupy Levels 102 to 118 of the International Commerce Centre (ICC) in Kowloon. At the podium of the ICC will be a 1,000,000-square-metre shopping mall, Elements, which will feature different luxury brand names under one roof.

Guess we have to see closer who's right....
