I have stayed at meridien in many European cities and they were usually above average places. however, my stay at this meridien was rather disappointing. the hotel is newer, and viewed as "chic" by the locals. I could pick up the slight "snobbishness" in the air when I entered the lobby (kind of reminded me of the W in ft... More

Heart if the action in Shanghai - you can't go wrong with this hotel. Great service, the Bund is within walking distance and the service is great. This was my first time in Shanghai and I would recommend this to all. The breakfast spread is simply fabulous as well.

An average place in the heart of the Nanjing street.hotel is part of multistory tower 21 story onward. At midnight when we arrived it did not look hotel as the reception is at 21 story. At parking level it was pitch dark. Surrounded by street smart sales guys and massage SPA guys. At 21 level found a sleepy reception. Next... More

Decided to try a new Starwood Property this time around as I usually stay at The Westin in Shanghai. Having read reviews, I had high expectations, but the hotel fell short on several of them. Let's start off with the check-in...While it was efficient, the front desk agent was a bit cold, and seemed uninterested. It is nice at times... More

I've visited Shanghai more than 30 times in the past decade, and for many years was loyal to the Westin. My wife and I tried the Le Royal Meridien on a trip last year and have been staying there ever since. It's a beautiful, modern hotel, and the views from the high floors are astounding. The Executive Lounge is terrific,... More

I am currently at the Le Royal Meridian Shanghai. I arrived late so decided on room service. The menu and food options are good. It took 20 minutes to get an answer on the room service line. They were out of stock of several wines I tried to choose. The next day, I tried again. Again, no one was answering... More

High quality Hotel right in the pedestrian area (Nanjing Rd). Rooms very well equipped and maintened. Lucky enough it offers a good Internet connection. Breakfast is rich either in Western style as well as in Asian. Check-In and Check-Out service can be improved

This hotel was a major splurge for us, but it was worth it! The location is perfect for the Shanghai Museum and the Bund. We really enjoyed the swank jacuzzi and pool, and the breakfast was satisfying for any nationality. The hotel staff went out of their way to bless us on our 8th anniversary, upgrading our room to a... More

This hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Shanghai. The building is impressive and the food is also very good. The executive lounge offers a breath-taking view of Shanghai. However, there are few glitches. Perhaps I have been spoiled, but this hotel did not meet my expectations as Starwood Platinum member. (1) I was not upgraded to a large... More
