My wife and I spent a memorable and extremely pleasant 5 nights here. Although an extremely onerous international conference started while we there and despite the Customs-like security at the entry, restricted access to lifts and more, this hotel exceeded all expectations.
Located right beside the river, with Shanghai City as a backdrop, we had access to delightful river walks and a feeling of open space which is not easy to get in this huge city. The building is also exceptionally well designed , maintained and functional.
Mother's Day Lunch was a special affair in the Western/Chinese/Japanese buffet. The range was virtually unlimited, so of course the cost was substantial, but isn't that better than making do with second-best when time is limited?
The Club Lounge was a home away from home, an oasis of relaxation. Consider a room upgrade to Club status if available - it is worth it, whether your travel is for business or leisure.
In short, the best hotel I have stayed in, anywhere, with top flight staff and cuisine.
We are retirees, using our own money from our own pockets. No company cards, no tax offsets. When on holiday we place extra value on comfort and quality, which we certainly received in Shanghai.
