I was in Shanghai for a brief business trip and stayed here for 2 nights. The magic of the hotel starts with the location: a 10 minute riverside walk to the Bund area, and excellent river views from around the hotel.
The rooms are sensational. Kitted out with all the latest electronics, they still retain character. A highlight is the shower and bath area: bigger than most hotel rooms in big cities! And with a TV...
The coffee shop served excellent food and had decent variety, both local and international.
However, the real highlight of the hotel is the Char Bar , on the 30th Floor. Great cocktails and wines. And the terrace offers an absolutely breathtaking view of the Shanghai & Pudong skylines. Magical!
Finally, the 7th floor gym and pool area. The treadmills overlook the river. And so does the pool, which is indoor. Though I do wish that the water was a bit warmed up!
Overall , an excellent experience and I'll certainly stay there next time I am in Shanghai.
