I think this used to be called the St Regis Shanghai. I've stayed here at a summer rate which is great (less than RMB 800 and including buffet breakfast). Further comments below:
Location - very convenient near the Century Avenue. I came here on leisure so it was good to be close to the metro system - PuDian Road station on the No. 6 Subway Line is 2 minutes walk away. If coming from airport, you can take the Maglev and switch to the metro system at Longyang road - whole journey is even faster than cab and cost only around RMB 60!
Rooms - Large, comfortable, well appointed rooms. Great closet size. The LCD TV is on the small size. Work desk is large and comes with comfy Herman Miller chair :) There are two couches, fresh fruit / flowers, complimentary bottled water, reasonable rates for local calls. Bed is comfy.
Bathroom - Good size, separate bath / shower, comes with a local line of shampoo/toiletries (so you may prefer to bring your own if this is an issue), only gripe is that the hair dryer is tiny and doesn't really work so happy taking an hour to dry your hair.
Service - Cleanliness is excellent in both the room, bathroom, and common areas. Service is prompt and efficient (comes with the St Regis "butler service"), although not very "smiley". I speak Chinese so can't attest to the standard of English spoken here. Free pressing of two pieces of clothings so great for business travelers and free shoe shine as well.
Breakfast - the included breakfast was on the simpler side but enough to fill you up with the usual spread - cereals, cold cuts, some hot dishes (veggies, salmon and macaroni), freshly made eggs to order, baked beans, dim sums, etc. Warning that they are not very good at replenishing so try to go early!!
All in all I would recommend this hotel as a great choice in Pudong, where most hotels tend to be overpriced. The room is a good size so families shouldnt have a problem.
