We stayed here as we were visiting an Expo at Shanghai World Expo centre. The hotel check in was quick and efficient and is not too far from the airport (15-20 mins). The rooms are really good for a business traveller, with a big king size bed, CNN and other English channels, and a large study desk. the bathrooms are really nice with a rainshower and bathtub.
The Hotel has an ATM which was convenient as we had to get cash on the first day. There were ready taxis to take us to the convention centre and it takes less than 5 minutes and hardly costs anything. Better to ask the concierge to tell the taxi driver where to go and have the hotel key card to show the taxi driver while coming back.
The gym, swimming pool and spa are fantastic. Usually on business trips we end up boozing in the bar in the evenings but here for all 3 nights we used the gym and swimming pool for 2 hours to work up an appetite for the impressive dinner buffet. However, the Indian food was not so good but the rest is impeccable. If you like meat and sea food then it's food heaven.
I really can't fault this hotel and what I expect from a 5 star.
I would definately recommend this as an ideal hotel for any business travellers attending the Shnagai Expo centre.
