Great hotel, lovely staff, fab gym and pool, views over the city and river, excellent club lounge, if I was going to the Expo I'd stay here again.

A comfortable hotel in an area of Shanghai which is somewhat remote for a leasure trip, but works well for Business. Nice view over the river and the Pudong area. Food is great, but we had to wait a looong time to get our food at the Basilica restaurant on two consecutive occations.

Stayed here 5 nights for a conference and quality of everything is very good, the service pleasant and the higher club rooms do have great views. As per the title I would possibly look to stay closer to the bund and central mall if I was travelling with my wife.

Very nice hotel, with big, comfortable rooms. Smartly designed bathroom that allow to people to be in while maintaining privacy. Nice amenities. Well assorted breakfast buffet. The Italian restaurant in the 3rd floor is worth trying.
