I have been here for my first time and I have to admit that is the best hotel I have ever stayed in Shanghai.
High luxury and comfort are the visit card of the Intercontinental Expo.
The rooms are excellent, spacious and fully equipped with: 42" TV with Bose surround system, king size bed very comfortable with a selection of pillows to choose from, spacious bathroom with double washbasin, shower and bathtub, wifi and cabled internet, mini bar, all you need in case you forget something such as: shaving kit, bathrobe, slippers, pyjamas,.....
The room I had has a nice view on Shanghi and on the river.
The hotel has also a fantastic pool, just watch the pictures on the Hotel web site.
The breakfast is varied and very good as well as the staff is always kind.
In some reviews some people are lamenting that staff is not speaking english very well and I have to admit that is true but I have also to highlight that compared to other chinese hotels the staff in the intercontinental is much better prepared and capable.
I finally highly suggest to book this hotel for your trip to Shanghai and I will definitively get back here.
