We bought a "group purchase" deal including a 1 night stay, massage for 2 and a brunch buffet for 2 for a weekend escape and thought it was a good value.
The rooms are really beautiful and well appointed with last tech features such as TV in the bathroom, big LCD screen etc. The bed is comfy and big, bathroom too (toiletries provided but the usual mediocre quality), actually I don't remember having any issues with the room.
The massage was their so called signature massage and honestly it was nothing at all. I wouldn't judge the quality of Vita spa by that as it was a group purchase, but it was truly disappointing, it's like the massage you can do to yourself with some oil without any skill involved.
We just took a look at the swimming pool and it looked good, but didn't try it.
The brunch was exactly the same as the dinner buffet which we tried on another occasion. Good variety with differing quality, includes free flow beer and funny Filipino musicians animating the restaurant; overall pretty good given the price (around 250 RMB I think).
We did have a few issues with the service, as they wouldn't let us take the brunch forcing us to take the dinner buffet saying the restaurant was fully booked for the brunch which we found was obviously not true, but this is to be expected with group deals (although not less unnerving for that matter).
Other than that we enjoyed our stay and I think it's a convenient choice and good value for anyone who wants to stay around Lujiazui. Would easily recommend it unless looking for top luxury.
