We spent 5 days in Shanghai at the Astor House Hotel. From the second you walked in you can tell that this establishment attracts only the best the world has to offer. Majority of the interior has very fine details and you can instantly tell that this place was filthy rich in history, dating back to 1851 according to Wikipedia. Almost every corner is covered in various style of photography taking pride in the fact that their corridors have been blessed by the presence of the likes of presidents, world renowned entertainers and even Charlie Chaplin himself.
Doormen and receptionists are good, but not as good as they should be. Many of them don't speak or speak very little English (like anywhere in China really), however, they are not rude in anyway and work very hard to give what you require despite the fact that telling them what you want may become a bit of a challenge.
Don't eat at the restaurant though, like any hotel they over charge and has mediocre quality at best. Same with the massage service, prices are very expensive; though with that said, I didn't use it so I am not sure about the quality they offer.
