Love Mandarin since the very moment stepping into the legendary mo hongkong.
I think they brought most part of their fantasy to shanghai where the Jardines started their family almost two hundred years ago. Unlike the Peninsula to rebuild its own building on the bund, mandarin chose place quiet and more like special. The problem is that the area where is still in construction and development, so probably people would feel quiet isolated. But considering only 5mins drive to ifc, I quiet like such exclusivity. Unlike the central station of Pudong-the ritz pudong? mandarin actually provide me a sense of special, a feeling of quiet and the true meaning of luxury.
I stayed twice in this mandarin before, which are Harbour city suite and Riverview suite. This time the hotel recommended Club mandarin riverview room, which is better than most of the rooms and can even compared to Riverview suite. With a direct view to the oriental pearl and the whole bund, this room are really beneficial. What's more it has a bigger bathtub than the that of Riverview suite! If with washlet in the toilet, that would be perfect!
The facilities of the hotel are enough with a very high standard, but just too underground.The 58 Grill has a very creative chef, who actually made a difference from other those of luxury hotels. The spa is very nice with a swimming pool of 25m length! I think no more than five luxury hotels has that big pool!
The last place, which is the best in my mind, is the chinese restaurant! I don't remember the exact name, but ,compared to my recent 3 visits to the lung king heen of fshk, I think the taste of this mandarin pudong restaurant is more palatable, or as same as palatable as that of fshk. What's more important, you don't need reserve your table one month prior!
The staff actually can fulfill almost all the requests you put up. Even some of mine are not that kind reasonable! I think the management team paid a lot effort to grow a team like that in mainland china!
All in all,
Love this hotel! Will come back for sure.
