Booked an eLong prepaid rate with b/f for 2 at a great rate, had to be in Jiuxianqiao area for business meetings and EAST (newly opened for a couple of years) is perfect in every way. The modern renovation, modest front desk is efficient and the casual, sporty look worn by the staff is a breath of fresh air from the formal, posh and stuffy lobby of usual 5-star hotels.
Was upgraded to corner suite (huge!) with tub and living room, love the Elemis amenities!
B/f selection is excellent, and the fresh-squeezed juice bar section is wonderful for a healthy morning perk-me-up.
EAST is connected to the new Indigo shopping mall with extensive western or chinese or fusion cuisine selection to satisfy all taste buds.
Gym equipment is up-to-date one of the best my colleague from India has ever seen. Indoor lap pool n jacuzzi were very clean n importantly, uncrowded.
EAST also seem to be the new top choice as an airline crew hotel, I saw Cathay Pacific crew and some Middle Eastern airline crew over my 3 stays at EAST. It used to be that Lido Holiday Inn about a mile and half away was the top choice in the yesteryears... once you stayed at EAST, you'll understand WHY!
