I stayed for three nights at the end of a ten day business trip. The room furnishings were adequate, even a little spartan, but the wired internet connection was free and fast (once I got the connection protocol sorted out). There is not really a place to keep clothes, and the safe was difficult to figure out. The highlights are the bathroom (the walk in shower was fantastic) and the air conditioning, which can cool the room to freezer-like temperatures. The bed was comfortable, minimal noise from other room and outside, so I slept great. I stayed in the main building, so I don't know if the other buildings are different. The breakfast buffet was rather limited in its selections, BUT they had a chef on hand to cook eggs to order! An omelet isn't quite what we think it is, but I appreciated the effort nonetheless. Coffee was good, too. Servicing of the room was minimal - basically pulled up the bed cover and put in a clean towel.
I think the value was pretty good for what you get - about $80-$90 per night for an executive king in Shanghai sounds like a deal to me. I saw mostly westerners staying here (lots of US exchange students and German tourists) as well as Chinese businessmen. I will definitely consider this place for my family if we go to Shanghai for vacation.
