This hotel isnt brand new and is a former St Regis (now under The Luxury Collection) but still kept its tradition of butler service. It is around 20-30 mins by cab from Nanjing Road. Furnitures are a little outdated but they maintain them pretty well.
I have to say this hotel has one of the most generous and nicest GM I ever came across. He kindly upgraded us (2 rooms) to huge suites almost 100sqm in size. The room has pretty large living room with sizeable working desk. Bedroom is also nice with large marble bathroom attached with walk in closet. It was my parent's 40th anniversary and on one evenign when we came back to the room we saw a nice piece of cake which was given to us by the hotel. It was nice gesture and we're grateful for that.
Breakfast for platinum SPG can either be taken at the lounge or main restaurant. Lounge has abit more vibrant feel to it but less foods selection. On a second day we had breakfast at a main restaurant at Lobby level. Foods're more in selection which feature everything what a standard hotel breakfast should be. Not the best breakfast I had but nevertheless it was adequate and filled all of us nicely.
The Hongta will be my no.1 choice should I be back in Shanghai again no doubt. Again location wise, its not the best out there but for hospitality and especially how nice the GM, Mr.Zong Liu had been treated us (he even came up to greet us at the lounge on a Saturday morning during breakfast which I assume is his day off) is something worth mentioning.
Thank you again for making our stay a memorable one.
