Book the hotel in the last seconds. It's now under the Bestwestern brand, which is supposed to be a high-end luxury 4 star hotel in Shanghai (BW also have a couple of 5 star hotels in China). The price is not bad but through a friend's company. Walk in price would be twice as much. The location is pretty good. It's located not right at the city center but 2-3 subway stops away. Itself is about 5 minutes walk to the Hailun Lu station for Line 4 & 10, a great advantage. Line 10 directly goes to the HongQiao airport.
The lobby is grand, like many other 4+ star hotels in China. The elevators are fast and higher floors have dedicated ones. The rooms are of good size including a regular sized bathroom. The room is pretty quite and the curtains keep the room dark even in the afternoon. The room is relatively clean except for the carpet, which is typical for Chinese hotels.
The breakfast is amazing. Definitely a 4+ star level buffet.
The good part ends here, unfortunately.
First, the internet is wired and cost 100 yuan/day, that's more than most US 5-star hotels rates.
Secondly, the beds and bedding are the worse than any 3+ star hotel in US, at least those I stayed.
Third: the gym opens at 10am and there's no pool.
The service is okay and its staff speaks good English. It also have shuttles goes to the subway station and a few other places nearby (I didn't use it).
