I stayed at the Intercontinental Expo in the middle of March. The first thing I realized getting to the hotel from Hongqiao airport is that not all taxi drivers know the location. I faced this problem a couple of times getting back from Puxi as well. However, the hotel staff where very good at giving the taxi drivers directly.
The hotel itself is fairly new and very modern. Checking in was smooth but being an ICH Platinum Ambassador I am usually upgraded to the Club Level at all InterContinentals in China but not this time which was quite disappointing!
My river facing room was excellent. However, the staff missed out on the getting some small things right like providing all complementary benefits to Platinum Ambassadors.
B'fast was excellent but I did not check out any other restaurant or the bar.
Overall the stay was comfortable and generally a good experience.
