I travel too much. But I have never encountered such good service. The person who checked us also took us to our room and showed us where things were. My ten-year son asked about when the aquarium opened. When we returned from lunch, there was a personal note to him with the details. We did not see this person for three days at check-out. She remembered his first name and asked what he thought of Shanghai and of the aquarium.
And this is just one example--there are plenty of other good things about this place. Great pool for laps and exercise equipment first-rate. Room tastefully furnished. Really liked the mini-bar included in the price in a city that is humid and where one should drink a lot. Wireless everywhere and also included on as many devices as you want made it easy to stay in touch with the office. The location is also good--direct subway line to the Bund that is only a few stops, and many good restaurants nearby. If you tire of Chinese, the sushi place in an alley around the corner is terrific (albeit expensive).
Only one minor complaint--one day was a holiday while we were there any many restaurants closed, so we had late appetisers in the hotel. They were creative but a bit pricy and lukewarm instead of hot.
But I love this place--I hope I can return.
