I stayed at the Kerry in March 2012 so my review is a little late. The experience is still very vivid though because my stay was A++ in this outstanding hotel. I was there for 5 nights on a business conference - we also used the conferencing facilities at the Kerry which made it a lot easier. My cab pulled up to the entrance and the staff were already waiting to open my door and take my bags. Once ushered into the amazing foyer, I was promptly attended to by the check-in staff. I was very impressed to see that the staff at the check-in desk not only spoke excellent english, but there were also some European ladies there that spoke other languages (I could hear German & French) as well as Mandarin - very impressive! As there were quite a number of European travellers, this would have been a welcome bonus I'm sure. Check-in was a breeze and took no time at all - I arrived a little early (around 1230pm) and even though check-in was at 2pm, my room was ready so I was whisked away to the elevator and taken straight up. I was booked into Deluxe Parkview Room and I must say, the room was just exquisite! The room itself was HUGE - and although there was a king size bed, bar, lounge chair, desk & chair - there was still ample space to almost run a lap! The bathroom was also crystal clean and more than ample for a solo business traveller. The bed was luxuriously soft (a welcome change from the hard chinese-style mattresses I've experienced in the past) and I slept like a baby the whole time. Room service menu was top notch and I enjoyed these on a few of the nights after long days of conferencing. Breakfast and lunch meals were had at the hotel as part of the conference and I must say, the spread that is put on each day by "The Cook" was just divine. Breakfast buffet was huge with amazing variety - at lunch we were again spoiled for choice with various items available from the different food bars - you could choose Asian, American, Italian, Fresh Seafood etc all made to order! Also next door is the Kerry Center which is a shopping mall with some cafe's and restaurants as well if you don't fancy eating in the hotel. Although the hotel is a little out of the way - the metro is right next door under the Kerry Center, so you can pretty much catch a train anywhere from here for a miniscule amount (about 3 RMB to Puxi) I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I'm looking forward to coming back to the Kerry soon!
