I stayed here in late August, 2012 - first time staying in the Pudong area in Shanghai.
The area: the hotel itself is in a convenient location with a short stroll from a fairly large shopping vincinity ("thumb"? Plaza) and is surrounded by attractions as mentioned by other reviews. Even though the location is fairly close to the river on maps, it is in actual fact a distance in reality. If you are after the glam of Shanghai (fancy restaurants etc etc), then Puxi is a better option. Which ever location you choose, be mindful of the very bad traffic conditions in Shanghai.
The hotel: I was upgraded to a club twin room on check-in because their non-smoking standard rooms had been booked out. The room itself was fairly worn, with some dints and scratches on furniture, aged carpet, aged drapes and bathroom etc, but the room was well sized and it was comfy with a good amount of natural light. My many experience with Chinese hotels had not bode well with working air conditioners, so I was thrilled to find that the room's air con was not centrally controlled and worked well when I had the temperature set to 16deg C. The staff was awesome - kind, attentive without being intrusive and responsive when I had concerns... The buffet breakfast was standard fare, but nothing to complain about.
Would I stay here again the next time I'm in Pudong? Yes.
