Ok, so i got the Hyatt to extend my two free cc nights to cover this trip (thanks to advice from sky121),

Now anyone have any opinion on which of the two Hyatts in Shanghai are better (both a block away from each other),
the Park or Grand?

i doubt you will find someone who stayed in both, but as a general rule, park hyatts are nicer, especially in cities that have both

It seems none of the Hyatt hotels are anywhere near the chabad (weekday minyanim, and cafe) which is in the Hongqiao area (as far as I can tell),

Is that an issue? How hard to get around? (I there always traffic?)

If yes- any recommended hotels closer to them?

Chabad site lists Hotels close to them.

I stayed at the Marriott,about 5 minutes by cab.

There's more than 1 hyatt, and more than 1 chabad

Well the two hyatts are next door to each other,
And I think there is only one chabad with kosher food and weekday minyan etc.
thanks though....

Stay in the PH for one night and then get a suite in the Andaz for the other night.

Specifically regarding the Grand Hyatt, anyone know how far it is from the Chabad?

Is that the one in the Jin Mao tower? No where near walking distance (in fact it's across the river, might even be out of Tchum Shabbos).

Yeah, that hotel is on my bucket list. Going up to the top floor and looking down the atrium into the lobby is a dizzying experience even before you consider that the lobby is on the 56th floor...
