Wonderful hotel. Really loved my stay here. Staff was very polite and willing to help, room was quite luxurious, and lots of nice touches.
The bed was comfortable, the minibar is nicely stocked, the features of the shaded windows and remote controlled curtains, etc. all make it quite an enjoyable place to stay. I was very comfortable here.
The only reason I didn't give this place five stars is because of some of the small details of the place.
While the shower is extravagantly beautiful, the rainforest shower head was old and didn't work until I flicked each individual rubber spout to get them running again. Some of the switches for lights and things didn't work the first (or second or third) time, and the power outlets are not super conveniently located. I cannot be the only person who wants an outlet right next to the bed so I can charge my phone and set an alarm to wake up.... The carpet was stained in a few places. But the desk and office station (with Ethernet cables and power outlets and converters and such was very nice.
The view was... Underwhelming. Probably just the way I was facing, but it was very industrial and not very attractive. I don't care about that.
Perhaps my biggest gripe with he hotel (especially had I been a tourist) is its location. To get to a part of Shanghai I would want to walk around and see or window shop or actually do anything is about a fifteen minute cab ride (about ¥25) with no traffic. It is NOT in a location where you can walk outside and down the street and grab a drink at a bar or get a bite, and I can see that being very disappointing for tourists wanting to enjoy their surroundings.
Aside from that, for a business traveler who wants to get off work and go back to a comfortable, quiet, relaxing hotel, it is nearly perfect.
