This was the last hotel on our CITS tour of China and it left something to be desired. The two-tier lobby (of which they are VERY proud!) is nice but not useful when you need to go to breakfast on one floor and check out on the other floor.
The room was tired and the bathtub was dirty and moldy along the edges. The bathmat was so moldy I chose not to use it at all for fear of foot fungus - better to take my chances in the tub itself. The toilet did not flush consistently.
The beds were not as hard as some we had experienced, but the windows were pitiful - you could hear every honk and car drive by on the freeway outside the window 19 stories below.
The breakfast in the hotel restaurant did have lots of choice but tables were scarce some mornings.
The drive to the main sights was easy because of our tour guide and private driver, and they were only about 15-20 minutes away for the most part. There are a few local restaurants around if you are willing to walk 30 minutes to find them but the hotel does have several restaurants (we did not try these) if you don't want to venture out into the traffic.
It was an okay hotel, but we would stay elsewhere if we were to return to Shanghai.
