We had a smooth check in, the receptionist spoke very good English. And for being a priority club member, you get a free drink coupon (fresh squeezed juice or wine) at the lobby bar. Just one thing, no one offered to help us with our luggage.
Our room was well appointed with a big King bed (newly renovated) with small art pieces around the room. We enjoyed the many TV Channels and used the Shanghai map and stationery provided.
I really liked the bathroom with dual sinks, the closet can be accessed both sides through the room and the bathroom. So you can reach for your bathrobes, without going out the door into the room again. And they have electric blinds to protect your privacy while you're showering.
Loved the buffet breakfast, everything from dim sum to fresh squeezed juice to made to order omelets, grilled tomatoes, barbeque duck..endless desserts..the service was attentive too, the manager said hello to us as soon as we walked in and the hostess lead us to our table.
I was worried at first that the location would be too isolated. But when I walked along the street in the evening, I found plenty of restaurants and shopping malls. There is a must try hot pot restaurant called " Hai Di Lao," (6F,588 Zhangyang Road). The service there is over the top! And while you are waiting for a table, they provide chess,children's area,manicure, drinks and snacks! And they are open 24 hours!
We walked to the nearest Metro station at Century Avenue about 10 minute walk leisurely.
Weddings on the weekend:
There is a beautiful atrium which makes the hotel beautiful and grand. But the wedding banquet area is also the grand floor of the atrium. Seems like every weekend, there will be a wedding going on with loud speakers and music all night. The wedding ended around 11pm that evening we were staying at the hotel and then some noise of cleaning and shuffling chairs continued for a bit.
Would definitely recommend and love to stay here again. Next time I would like to try out the club lounge.
