We stayed here for three nights and just loved this hotel. Finally, a comfortable bed in Asia! We were a family of four, with a five and seven year old. The staff was so warm and welcoming to us, and they were great with our kids. We upgraded to the club floor, which was well worth the money in my opinion. Breakfast is included, as are hors d'oeuvres in the afternoon and cocktails from 5:30-9:30. There were enough choices with the hors d'oeuvres that one night it sufficed for dinner for us. There were even lamb chops! Breakfast was great, all four of us were satisfied with the selection. The best part, though, were the ladies that work in the club lounge. The service was outstanding. Every morning, not only did they remember us, they had our coffee and apple juice brought to our table without our even asking, after learning the first morning what our preference was. They went out of their way to make us feel at home.
We arrived at 8 am, and we were able to check in our room right away. The only downside of this hotel is it is about 30 minutes to downtown in a taxi, but taxis are really cheap in Shanghai, like less than $10 USD to get to the tourist attractions. They are also located right on a subway line, and there is a grocery store next door with anything you might need.
Given the fantastic service and the beauty and comfort of the rooms, I would definitely stay here and recommend it to others. The staff makes this hotel one of the best I have ever stayed in.
