We stayed here for 2 nights in a Fairmont gold room and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We had booked a transfer from the airport through the hotel as we were arriving at 7am. On arrival at the hotel we were whisked up to the 9th floor for check in and served breakfast in the club room while they went through the formalities. As soon as we finished breakfast, we were shown to our room. Considering this was 6 hours before normal check in time we were very impressed to be given a room so early. There wasn't even a hint of, we're doing you a favor by letting you check in now.
The hotel has recently been refurbished and all I can say is, bravo Fairmont. The decor is gloriously art deco and of the highest quality. From the club room, to Cin Cin's to the Cathay and the Jazz Club, you could still be in the 1940's. Being situated on the Bund, it is centrally located to everything and The Cathay restaurant has a beautiful view over the financial district skyline at night.
The rooms are well appointed, as all Fairmont rooms are. We had a large bathroom with two vanities, a separate bath and shower. The room size was quite adequate, and once again, beautifully decorated.
I cannot fault this hotel or this experience.
