Right on the Bund this old hotel is well kept and well managed. Staff are courteous and efficient. The Fairmont rooms are definitely up to Fairmont standards - why these high end hotels don't have comfortable seating in their rooms and their lobbies I'm not too sure, but otherwise no complaints.
The breakfast buffet is in a different wing that we were in, meaning having to go down one set of elevators and up another. The buffet was not spectacular but the pastries were very good.
This hotel which was built in the very early 1900's has great architectural features inside and out. It's location on the Bund allows for access to many tourist experiences including the hop on hop off buses, the boardwalk along the Bund and easy access to many shops and restaurants on Nanjing Road.
As a Fairmont President's club member, internet was free and while the first two nights were part of our tour, the reservations desk was accommodating, giving us three more nights of bed and breakfast for the price of two.
Front desk staff was friendly and helpful.
Cleaning staff was quick and efficient.
Consider this as a possibility for your Shanghai home. There is every reason that it rates so high on Trip Advisor.
