Pros: Good location very close to exit 5 of subway (line 1, Shanghai railway station), sufficient sizes of rooms on the club floors, courteous staff. Kindly been given late check out at 6pm.
Cons: The receptionist could not understand why I ask a free upgrade, although I'm a Le Club gold member and tried to explain her and show the card. Unacceptable for Mercury quality of breakfast and snacks at happy hour in the Club lounge. Meager selection of soft and alcoholic beverages. Unpleasant (sewage) smell in elevators.
Air conditioning was out of duty (+30 C in the room) and although we were transferred to the suite (it was made very quick after our request to invite technical personnel) there was a same problem with the air conditioning.
A printer in the Club lounge is out of oder, a printer in the business center seems never used before me.
