Certificate of Excellence

The rooms were small and just ok. I liked that the hotel was in a nice location...close to the metro and Louis Vuitton store which was great. Additionally, there were good restaurants across the street from the hotel.

It was ok.

Rooms were clean.
Concierge staff very helpful.
Breakfast was very good.
Gettig a taxi was never a task of more than 4 or 5 minutes.
While the hotel is not centrally located for main tourists areas, there are several easy and confortable options for getting in and out of the hotel.
There is a shopping center with a "ifood" section wich offers a great variety of restaurants.
Starbucks is also within walking distance.

This is one of the better hotel I have stay at. The room was spacious and NEW. The whole hotel property was beautiful and great for relaxing night stay

The Good:
- The hotel is connected to a mall with a good sized food court.
- Close to subway station

The not so good:
- Had tea at the lobby for two people and it cost over $20 USD, should have just walk across the street to starbucks.

Overall it is still an amazing hotel and I would come back time after time.

We have stayed here several times in the past couple of years and it has always been a great experience. The rooms are large and modern with extremely comfortable beds. The spa is very nice and the pool and jacuzzi are usually empty, apart from us. There is everything you would expect to find in a modern 5* hotel and at a brilliant price.

The buffet breakfast is enjoyable but for other meals, you are better off going to the adjoining shopping mall where there are lots of different types of restaurant serving excellent food.

The only downside is that it is out of the centre of Shanghai, but it is right by the metro station, you don't even have to step outside to get there. From the hotel it is roughly 20 minutes by metro to Peoples' Square. If you are travelling to Pudong airport, taxis take about an hour and cost around £25

Room Tip: So far all the rooms we've tried have been excellent.

The room was spacious and had high end detail. The whole hotel property was beautiful and well maintained, the breakfast was great, the evening buffet looked good but I was not hungry enough to eat at a buffet. It was handy to the metro and lots of shopping. When I walked in the first evening after a long day of sightseeing and traveling I immediately felt like I had arrived at a grand hotel. The feeling never left for the duration of my visit.

This was our last stop in China. The hotel was amazing with a huge variety of choices for breakfast.
The first room we were given smelled so smoky, (as do many 'non smoking' rooms in China), we asked to switch rooms and our next room was a corner room. It was clean, fresh and quiet, but really cold. The heat didn't work, so the staff bought a heater up to the room immediately.
The bathroom was huge with massive windows overlooking the city. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The metro is right there, so getting around is convenient and pretty simple.
Overall we were very happy to stay here.
