The Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund is a hotel that definitely lives up to the Waldorf Astoria brand. It is an immensely beautiful hotel with fantastically appointed, bright, and spacious rooms. If you're fortunate enough to have a room with the Bund view the a look out the windows is a spectacular view of the newer downtown area of Shanghai. One of the more surprising features of the room is the use of technology. A touch-screen next to the bed controls lighting functions, blinds, room service, etc. and is wonderfully intuitive. The bathroom is large and covered from head to toe in granite with a TV incorporated into the mirror and a motion activated, and highly automated, toilet greets you upon your entrance (maybe an odd feature to note, but if you're not used to automated toilets, e.g., an American as I am, this is an interesting feature and light years ahead of a standard bidet).
The staff is exactly was would be expected, professional and efficient. The experience that the Waldorf has crafted is all encompassing and exactly what you need when traveling in a city such as Shanghai.
After traveling throughout Europe, the US, and Asia I can honestly say that I have not stayed at a better hotel anywhere at anytime. A wonderful hotel with the highest recommendations to stay if you're in Shanghai (maybe go visit Shanghai just to stay there if you can).
