This was my first visit to the Shanghai property, and I wasn't disappointed. From the Meet and Greet and Rolls Royce private transfer, it just continued to excel. As I arrived I was whisked away to my suite and checked in in the suite. After being shown the amenities, I then left and walked the hotel. A stop at Sir Elly's on the top floor is a must for a cocktail after 5pm and some snacks.
The main bar is worth a visit and of course the magnificent spa, for some superb treatments.
All in all, this was a true 5 star experience, as was expected.
