We stayed here for three nights prior to a tour of Eastern China, and again for three nights after the tour. Our room number 817 was fabulous. Quite large with a view of nearby apartments and gardens. The bathroom was large and modern with a great shower and plenty of hot water. There was also a spa type stand alone bath. The desk area had power switches to suit all types of plugs so we did not have to use our adaptors for recharging phones or tablets.
The hotel provides free Wifi if you join Marritt Rewards for free. The lobby is gleaming with chandeliers and plenty of seating areas. The breakfast buffet was exceptional, probably one of the best we have ever had. The hotel is connected to the Shanghai Metro and two shopping malls. The surrounding area is quite upmarket and everything looked fairly new.
The staff were very friendly, welcoming, polite and efficient. Thoroughly recommended.
