I'll start with the bad first. We had ordered their best room, the 3 bedroom apartment since we wanted to have our entire family in one apartment. I was really dismayed to arrive there and find that they didn't have this room available considering I ordered this 3 months prior and we were staying for almost 2 weeks. I was determined to give them a crap review, however the stay we had was good and we got two of their top floor apartments and some other compensations. Thanks to manager Nora He for working out an acceptable solution.
We used the gym some and it was actually quite good. The pool looked nice we just never got round to using it.
Breakfast was great and service was impeccable. Kudos to Jane Ying for her command of the breakfast lounge and for remembering a lot of details about us and the other residents including preferences for omelets, drinks etc.
Location is fantastic with line 9 just out the door and line 2 a few hundred meters walk. Shanghai World Financial Building and Oriental Pearl tv tower is within walking distance. Lots of restaurants and a 7 eleven and a family mart for buying water and other household items.
Some noise from the aircondition, but what can you expect with the heatwave in Shangai, up to 42 degrees Celsius in the shade.
We used the tvs a bit to watch some movies we bought but the quality of the tvs weren't the best. Looks like first generation LCD's with crappy black levels, but a minor thing.
We got some help from reception to book train tickets which worked out fine.
Service was overall good, but somewhat impersonal.
Stunning view from high floors.
I'd give it top marks, but Marriot will have to settle for second best considering I didn't get what I ordered.
