Given the choice of taking the escalators or the stairs, here's some advice, take the stairs, particularly if you find yourself at Wulin Plaza in Hangzhou, China.

In total there are 54 steps. You can watch a video of the stairs in action at the SINA English website. (They're much louder than you might think.)
