“good location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

had not the best view when looking out of the window of the room, but that is not the problem of hotel but more one of the city.
Hotel is great in every way, I would stay there again.
Breakfast is too expensive.
SPA is wonderful
Service friendly
English communication no problem

Have stayed here for 3 of 6 trips to Shanghai. Rates can often be found for a third less than the Radisson, Westin and Sofitel which are the other hotels I've stayed at. Excellent location with very clean rooms and lobby. Buffet breakfast is excellent value when included in discounted club room but not worth it if you pay full price for it. Internet is slow but it is everywhere else I've stayed as well.
