This is not a downtown location for typical business travel, but certainly the best location to walk to the West Lake. If you will have some free time in Hangzhou during nice weather you should consider to stay here. And while this is a Shangri-La property, it does not especially look like it in the lobbies of either wing which are connected only by a long covered walkway. It is a bit reminiscent of the state-run hotels of the 1980's. Especially the bathrooms.
The Italian restaurant was very, very good and the service was impeccable. The Chinese restaurant was just good, we had some better Chinese food randonly choosing a restaurant down the street. Breakfast was fine, nothing special but not bad either.
Tip: if coming from the train station reserve a hotel car to pick you up. I had to wait 45 minutes for a taxi and I was told this is normal for the early evening. Before departure they also booked a taxi for me because they are not always readily available.
