Its pretty easy to criticise almost any hotel. Obviously expectation depends on the star rating but there are usually at least some issues. Not really so with the WA Shanghai. Ideally located, situated in a wonderful building upon which money has been lavished on marble and generally high quality fittings. Combined with excellent food and impeccable service, it's really hard to fault and not difficult to see why it ranks No. 1 in Shanghai. Having also stayed in a few hotels in Beijing I suspect it would rank highly were it possible to search on China overall. Actually if it was possible to pick this place up as a package and put it in any country it would still rank highly. Ok, I am sure there is some over starred, over rated palace in Dubai or similar which offers a couple of virgins providing full massage while you recline on a bed of solid gold watching the dolphins frolic in your private pool. But within the confines of normal good taste this is about as good as it gets and well worth it's 5 star rating.
