I spent an evening networking on the roof top terrace. It is an incredible location and we felt very well taken care of. Very recommendable! If you are looking for a nice, clean and professional place to stay in central Shanghai, then this will be perfect for you!

Dear CK:

We really appreciate your review! Thank you! I agree - I think our rooftop terrace is pretty incredible. To be up looking over old Jing'An lanehouses with newer skyscrapers ahead really does feel special.

I hope you will return again for another event soon, if not as a hotel guest!

Best,
Claire

I have been there for an event and everything was organized perfectly. The location is super clean, modern and has super nice stuff. Will be there again soon in early 2014 and stay there a some nights.

I visited for a conference and was thoroughly impressed with the design, service, and food at this hotel. A gem of a building tucked away in a quiet Shanghai street with an interior that easily makes jaws drop and a rooftop that does the same. I would have loved to stay the night.

Dear WM11:

I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed our hotel design! I only wish you had been able to stay with us, as I think our rooms really solidify the fact that our design really is something special (but I'm not biased or anything...!).

Next time, please do think of us and stay with us. We'd love to have you!

I attended an event with 80 people on the rooftop. The atmosphere was amazing and the view was supporting it even more! We had amazing food and the drinks where just as I like them. Really good place to mingle and get to know new people!

We hosted an event here for 80 people on the rooftop. It was magnificent, and the events team made every effort to please us and our guests. They really went over the top with backup preparations in case of weather, and were nothing but accommodating for our last minute and somewhat demanding request. In particular, the event coordinator Lan Hu is in absolute delight to work with. Always prompt on replies and happy to help.

Wow- what a unique Shanghai experience. I really liked this hotel. Very slick with some interesting business people staying there, making it feel you are in the creative business centre of the city. I only wish I had more time to enjoy it as I was working long hours. Beautiful wood floors and fixtures, large rooms, great lighting design..and then the city lights and Shanghai skyline from your window. It's not a 'homely' hotel, but it's a very cool one.

Dear ibeenthereandthere:

Thank you so much for writing a review for us. It's really too bad you weren't able to spend more time exploring Shanghai and less time on work while you were here. Hopefully you will find yourself returning to Shanghai sometime soon and have more free time to discover and experience the many amazing parts and people of Shanghai!

This is a great - and affordable - hotel in Shanghai. It's just a few blocks from Plaza 66, and the much more expensive 5-star hotels nearby. They have a great program with a local gym, which makes staying healthy (no small feat in China) a lot easier.

A huge breakfast buffet, and very friendly staff.

Thanks so much for your review! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed our gym partnership with OneWellness (great job working out while out of town! I'm terrible about doing that when I'm away from home...), and that you liked our breakfast offerings.

Please think of us in the event that you return to town!
