I've always enjoyed Shangri La hotels (Tokyo, Taipei, etc.) and Kerry reminds me of why. Everything about the hotel is predictably excellent, and the lack of surprise is what most business people like: spacious & thoughtful room design, attentive lobby staff, clean & careful execution on all daily necessities. Unlike other hotels in China, this one doesn't seem to suffer from the rapid decay in fixtures, cleanliness, etc. It's not cheap, but it's well worth the cost.
So why is it "best" for "pure" business trip? First, it's just outside of downtown so from the Pudong airport to Kerry there is no frustrating traffic jams. Second, it's close to the electronics/semiconductor offices that I visit often (again, outside of downtown). Third, it's away from the bustle & hanky-panky of downtown, so at night, I've never had to worry about having to go out for late night drinking, LoL But the best thing is that, there is a stadium size gym, and a 25M pool. The gym is mind-bugling full of equipment for me to get totally wasted by the end of an hour work-out.
