I am planning a trip to Shanghai with my husband and 3 kids and looking to book either of the above hotels. This is our first time there and we're looking to cover the usual tourist sights.
Our ideal hotel will be near eateries, shopping malls and easy transportation (not sure if we will take the subway as I have a toddler with me!). (OT-Will most taxis in Shanghai take 5? )
Anyway, which of these hotels is better located? LSO has quoted a higher rate but it includes breakfast and is highly rated. Gran Melia doesn't seem to have a package including breakfast (is it easy to find breakfast near the hotel? Buffet breakfast for 5 will add up over 3-4 days!) but the rooms are about 13m2 bigger!
Or...if anyone has another hotel which may be ideal, please suggest. We are looking at at least 4-5 star hotels, about US$150-US$250 a night per room.
Decisions, decisions. Any input is most welcome!
