It's located in the former French Concession and has a low key exterior. The hotel's décor is modern Chinese with fine murals through out the hotel. I got a complimentary room upgrade with a balcony looking over the garden which is small. It has bamboo and a small waterfall. Not pretentious. The room décor is again Chinese with subtle gold, grey, beige, brown and red color. They are very harmonious and soothing. I like the amentias in the bath room: the toilette is modern Japanese style. There are two types sea salt for soaking in the warm water. A small TV in the bathroom allows me not feel bored while soaking in the tub. The bed was very comfortable. I had a hard time to figure out how to open the curtain: it's motorized and just needs to be tugged. The refrigerator is filled with plenty free soft drinks and local beer. The swim pool is big with sections for children. The locker room is luxury and also has a Jacuzzi, and sauna and a steam room. The gym has a view to the swim pool. The pool is indoor which is perfect for the 4 seasons in Shanghai. The architecture design of the swim pool allows nature light comes in from the ceiling make it very nice and light hearted. I didn't eat food there because for a native Shanghainess, the food in a luxury hotel is too expensive.The hotel is 20 meters away from the Hengshan subway station. There are lots of western clubs and all kind of restaurants within the walking distance. The only missing part is the shopping. I also give the value of the hotel 5 stars because there is a discount promotion for the room. But overall, I like it to be in the heart of Shanghai, but away from crowd.
