A brand new hotel from the Luxury Range from Starwood. Location for a visitor to me is perfect - a beautiful area of Shanghai with tree lined streets, original buildings and a massive choice of Western and Chinese restaurants and entertainement within walking distance. A very safe area to walk alone at night.
It may be a bit far from the tradtional areas of Pu Dong and The Bund, but here you see genuine Shanghai.
The hotel itself is less than 6 months old but by now the staff are fully trained and the freindlinjess and help I got from them beat anything else I have received on many previous visits to Shanghai. The rooms are large and spacious ( I stayed in a courtyard room - which was a RMB 500 upgrade) and i am not sure it was worth the extra.
The only issue I had with the room was that they have made all lights automatic with 'mood' settings and it took me 3 days to find out how to turn everything off and on!
There is one restaurant in the hotel (did not try it) but with the choice of many others within walking distance this was an advantage not an advantage.
Compared with previous hotels i have stayed in Shanghai ( Westin Bund, Hongta, Royal Meridien - very close second) I would rate this as the best.
Not cheap - but quality never is!
