Debated whether or not to stay here for a while, but ended up getting a club-level room on the 48FL, which I don't regret one bit. The view was so awesome, I forgot about the rest of the hotel since I spent most of my time looking out the window.
The room was huge, and the bathroom took up most of it. We had a Pudong-facing room, which was a bit hard to see, but still worthwhile. You can really see the scale of how massive the city is from that high. The club lounge is also awesome, and the staff were terrific. Happy hour was ok, but not enough for a dinner, while breakfast was excellent. The fruits, breads, and coffee were much more than I expected. There were some Chinese options, too which were also pretty good. I stopped by the lounge every time I left and they let me leave with a take-out coffee and some fruits every time!
The pool is cool, but was pretty crowded and noisy. It's located on the 26FL, so I had this assumption that it would be airy and relaxing, but it was more like screaming children running around and their moms yelling after them. Also, the pool and locker area was starting to look tired, and starting to go the way of every Chinese-brand hotel after a few years. For example, the numbers of a few lockers had fallen off, and some things just looked worn, etc.
Mostly excellent, though. If you don't need to stay in a great location (the location of this hotel is pretty useless) then this hotel is nice. Taxis are relatively cheap in Shanghai, so we got around pretty quick and easily, and the men at the door were helpful to get us where we were going.
Good value here!
