This is a brand new hotel in the heart of Shanghai's financial district. The atmosphere is very grand right after you enter the lobby. I stay at junior suite room and the size is incredible. There is a living room + guest bathroom; then a separate bedroom with walk-in closet and spacious bathroom (with standing bathtub + separate shower area)
Since my room is located on 51th floor, the view is quite amazing (unfortunately Shanghai was grey, cloudy and raining during my stay there).
No doubt that this is a very impressive hotel with Ritz-carlton standard service
Now, the "But" is:
I guess it all comes down to preference. To me, the hotel seems rather impersonal and cold; probably because it feels so brand new, immaculate and flawless. The interior design is too modern and - somehow -- too cold for me. To me it lacks the charm and the character and the homey feeling.
Still, a very very good hotel
