This is a fabulous hotel. Take the Express Lift to the 52nd floor just to check in. Take another lift to room.
Our suite overlooked the Bund. This is true world class. Lying on the day bed watching the lightshow. Can it get better? Only with great difficulties.
Executive Lounge had a good selection of food and drink, service ranged from very attentive to at times "Chinese" - meaning Western trained staff weren`t available and the Chinese tried very hard to deliver service, but not always got it right. For me it added to the charm and wasn`t inconvenience, but I can imagine that not everyone sees it that way ... especially considering the room rate.
Suite had a stand alone bath, floor to ceiling windows, fast & free internet, very clean, bed with bedding very outstanding and excellent Asprey bathroom products.
The infinity pool promises more than it delivers. Yes - it is on the 54th floor, but it feels more like a pool in a room with steamed up windows, rather than an infinity pool overlooking Shanghai. There was also a little bit of green mould on some tiles in a small area. Nevertheless, still very impressive to able to have a swim and jacuzzi high up a building.
It is a very good hotel, but not yet in the same league as the InterContinental Hong Kong or Mount Nelson in Cape Town. One can sense the hotel has aspirations and a good chance to be one day in the top league of world class hotels.
