Stayed in the hotel for business trip for 12 nights. Overall, the hotel is has its good and bad. I have stayed in other hotels in Shanghai and this hotel pales greatly in comparison for the service and location. I will probably not stay here again. Service needs major improvement! It is impossible to get any attention of service staff... More

No compromise. It is in line with the best tradition of the hotel chain. Very good location near the expo and to the places where you would like to spend your free evenings in Shanghai. I booked at the last minute and I could not get a room with a view over the Shanghai tower and the city Skyline. Make... More

Great property overlooking the river. Wonderful English pub in a separate building in a courtyard setting. Near the Expo. Paulaner German brew pub/restaurant within walking distance, but not much else. I was shocked to pay 57 RMB for a cup of coffee (almost US$10) in the lobby lounge. People don't hang around the lobby lounge for that reason. They could... More

It was my family gathering. Initially, they upgraded me to a Suite as I am a RA member. The room is a little bit small for me, cause' I have 10+ relatives to visit my room.

Clearly one of the best hotels in Shanghai I've staid at. The location is very convenient if your are heading to the Shanghai exhibition halls. The views from the room are amazing, thx to the floor-to-ceiling windows. Having tasty breakfast & coffee while watching dozens of ships passing by is certainly a cool touch to a business trip.

This is the third time I have stayed in this hotel for a trade exhibition at the nearby SIEC venue and again had another wonderful stay.

First time in Shanghai so I really didn't know what area to go for so I decided to go with somewhere close to where I would be working and as I am a fan of Intercontinentals I decided on this. This one certainly didn't dissappoint with it's location, rooms, service and style. Good food and large selection for the breakfast... More

I found the hotel to be very exotic! The staff were fantastic and helpful with my lost luggage on my flight. My room was modern and spacious too. I enjoyed a meal in their restaurant which was fine dining at its best.

This is a truly wonderful business hotel, except for the very intermittent and weak Wi-Fi. The location is ideal if you have business in the expo area. However, if you are hoping to be near the central business restaurant district of the city, it is a bit off the beaten path. If you stay here, be very sure to request... More

This is one fantastic hotel. They gave me a corner room with spectacular views of the river. The rooms were great. Internet was free with their club membership. Breakfast spread was excellent. Staff is very courteous. A bit on the expensive side, but located near some excellent development.
