Rooms were spacious, modern and stylish. They were clean and in good condition. Excellent house keeping. The same applies to all communal areas that I saw of the hotel.
Restaurant - we only ate the buffet breakfast, but the food was "ok" at best. I've seen some other reviews raving about the breakfast but I didn't think the western cooked breakfast was very good, I'm not a huge fan of having Chinese food for breakfast and the cold continental breakfast was fine just not to my taste. Perhaps they could have had a wider selection of bread and fresh fruit etc?
Staff were all very friendly and helpful, however their English was basic, even the receptionists and concierges. This might be a slightly harsh comment considering I can't speak any Chinese and they knew enough to get by with simple "hotel" type questions.
Location is great. Very central to the main regions of Shanghai. You'll still probably have to get a taxi to most things when exploring the city, unless you really love walking!
I would stay here again.
