We stayed here over Xmas 2009, soon after it opened. Everything about the place was wonderful - the staff (good English spoken); the spacious room, with all mod-cons including an iPod/iPhone audio+video hookup; the comfortable king-size bed; the swimming pool and jacuzzi. We didn't try any of the restaurants or bars but the room service food was excellent (popcorn chicken!).
Don't miss the Sunday afternoon ballroom dancing in the lobby - really brings back a feel for what pre-war Shanghai must have felt like.
