I came here for a work conference, obviously not my choice and was horribly disappointed. The hotel was OK but the whole experience was completely ruined by the fact that I was given a smoking room. They were unable to change my room due to the hotel being full so all in all my experienced was incredibly average. I hated going back to my room, everything I packed smelled of smoke when I got home and I felt dirty all the time while I was in Shanghai. We tried to make it better using the aircon and/or opening windows but once that smoke is in the soft furnishings, it's hopeless really.
The food was very average as was the location. There is nothing around this hotel except a myriad of roads/highways/byways so if you are going to Shanghai to SEE Shanghai, be prepared to Taxi around a lot if you stay here.
The front desk wasn't very helpful, of course we didn't speak Chinese (even though I believe when you visit a country you should learn some of the language, it's impossible to learn all of the Chinese language and alphabet in a couple of months) and we really struggled to gain assistance. They weren't very patient either, which was disappointing. If they want to host a conference of english-speaking people, they should be a bit more patient, otherwise don't host us.
All in all it was adequate, better for business than tourism, but I wouldn't stay here again and I certainly do not plan to recommend this hotel to my clients.
