This is a nice hotel, with good well-appointed rooms, excellent service, and a great view of the Bund if you are in the right room, which of course you pay extra for. I have marked it average because it is nothing special considering the high price paid.
In fact, I was a bit annoyed this stay, because there was evidence of cost-cutting at breakfast. Although still a full breakfast, with plenty of variety, they have been cutting back. For example, during previous stays they used to offer large amounts of fresh salmon and other fish, but they now have water melon and cereal on display instead. After much searching a tiny plate of salmon could be found, but it quickly ran out. Somebody has clearly undertaken a cost-cutting exercise. This is the behaviour I would expect of a lower-end hotel, not the Shangri-la. A pity.
