Although I don't rate the city of Shanghai itself highly as a tourist destination, the hotel itself was very good. Spacious rooms on high floors overlooking the city, interesting design (picture attached), 2 Metro lines around the corner and, yes, wi-fi in he rooms. People mentioned that the pool/spa in the hotel were very good, but we didn't get a chance to try it. The Japanese restaurant on the top floor offered a nice panoramic view of the modernistic skyskrapers of Pudong. A benefit of being closer to the river and away from the center of Shanghai (Old French Concession, etc) was that the air quality was a lot better near the hotel than in city center, where on one of the days it was truly awful. There is a 1930s Bauhaus slaughterhouse converted to a collection of art galleries, restaurants, etc within walking distance - but it proved to be a disappointment compared to its review in my guidebook.
