Shanghai and Pudong are full of hotels so for me it is location that set the first criteria when choosing one. Traffic can make a difference whether you are sitting extra hour in jam or alternatively with cold beer or massage. Well, all of you, if not familiar with the town, check from map where you need to be and get hotel as close as possible.
Purple Mountain hotel compete well in group of four start business hotels. Overall rooms are good size and I like the dark wood used in furnishing. Facilities for keeping your shirts and shock organized are provided, washroom is specious and some rooms share the light of the room all the way to the bathtub having glass wall separating them.. sure there is curtains for privacy when needed.
There is not much difference in rooms whether booked into a executive floor of a normal floor. Executive floor gives benefits like private check-in and out facility at 26th floor, lounge for evening drinks and snacks (included executive room package). Breakfast in lounge is good way to start a day without hassle of hundred other busy brekie biters.
Compared to next door hotel, in this hotel foreign traveler will be understood and served in English - sometimes with better, sometimes with less perfect, but good enough. Food in hotel is good standard but not gourmet.
Next door is new building full of restaurants. Just a walk across the street and you have selection from local Chinese cuisines to Japanese, Western... I haven't yet explored them all.
Hotel gym was rebuild two years ago and I was positively surprised of the good quality. Surely my favorite after office hour relaxation. At same floor you can find spa which is clean, but I haven't yet got a good sports massage. For relaxation ok, but they could get some better trained masseurs.
