Stayed here 2 times during the last two weeks and overall it was a pleasant experience.
Rooms are adequate with comfortable beds / all amenities and good bathroom. One negative;Top shelf of wardrobe was dusty so didn't use it to put my shirts there. Seems this shelf is difficult to reach for most housekeeping staff in hotels I visit ;).
Breakfast was average compared to other Shangri-La hotels. Less choice and atmosphere. Shangri-La Qingdao f.e. is much better in this respect.
I used the Summer Palace restaurant once for lunch and found the service was lacking friendliness (we were a bit late since I was delayed from the airport and there were just too many glances at the wristwatch and also rush and push to get the food order... don't expect that at a restaurant with hefty price tag).
Overall it should be mentioned the hotel staff is very friendly and helpful.
Luxury mall with food corridor can be accessed directly from the hotel.. nice..! Also subway is within short walking distance which is a great plus.
Tip; bring chinese name and address for the hotel. Some taxi drivers seem to have difficulty to understand "Shangri La China World" . On my second visit I had to guide the taxi driver there step by step....
