This is a gorgeous hotel. The rooms are so beautifully appointed. We had a room facing the river - definitely pay extra for this, the views are spectacular. The room came with a cookie jar that was filled each day, a Nepresso coffee maker, bottled flat AND sparkling water, fresh fruit each day and all the extras that you get at a hotel in China. The curtains are automatic and close at the push of a button, the lights light up in the room by themselves when you come in, the toilet lifts it's lid for you and so many other fun features. I think it's also very important to mention that the beds are so comfortable with sumptuous bedding. Downstairs, the dining room is absolutely stunning and the staff is so attentive. The food was delicious, so good in fact that in 2 days, we had 4 meals there including afternoon tea that had so many goodies, I couldn't finish everything. I'm unbelievably thankful that Trip Advisor had this hotel rated at the top of their list because it wasn't listed in my two guidebooks and I would have missed the best hotel in China! Just to give you a point of reference, this is MUCH better than the Waldorf in New York, which I love. Lastly, I had read some review that said the Bund was grimy. If it is, it's not that way in front of this hotel. You can just go out and take a beautiful walk along the river.
