This location is by far the best in Shanghai. You can walk to practically everything. The hotel has been renovated. We got in late and were up early the next morning to start our tour and then get to our cruise ship for 2 more nights in Shanghai. We stayed in an interior room for that reason, but it was lovely.....spacious, huge room and bathroom....large double sinks, great shower, comfty beds. Just a great place to stay. Wish we could have spent more time there.
