I've never stayed in an Andaz before - and this was over my corporate budget but got a deal agreed through local office!
All I can say is that the room I have is truly amazing. It took me 10 mins to find the lights (panels in drawers!!) but all makes sense once you know...
Room size - awesome; bathroom is its own wonder (wet room, illuminated bath...wasted on a business trip!) free soft drinks from minibar; free WiFi...I stay in a LOT of hotels both on corporate budgets, and at luxury end for personal trips - and this hotel is in my top 10...and depending on how the rest of the stay goes, top 5! I would personally pay full freight here if in Shanghai for leisure.
City is surprisingly modern - already found the ubiquitous Starbucks - which I need to do as breakfast here is not cheap, and am on a company expenses. But that's a general criticism of hotels in the region so far.
Am staying with Andaz in NY next year - it has a lot to live up to!
