No one can deny that this is a nice hotel, but it's just really stuffy.
This is probably the perfect hotel for 55+ year olds ready to begin social security in that it's really old luxury and for people that feel like they've made it in life.
The rooms are nice - but again, your very classic luxury. My company put me up here as we had business to do near the bund, but it was just sort of an old feeling.
I like the JW Marriott a little more in that it's a little more modern and more hip for 30+ year olds. But then, again, there are probably 50 hotels that I'd prefer to stay in before the Waldorf if i could stay at trendy hotels.
Again, this just happens to not really be the style of any one that's into a more hip hotel - such as Hotel Indigo down the street. Too bad Shanghai doesn't have a W.
