I recently completed a five night stay at this very elegant property in Shanghai. From arrival to departure the hotel was a delight. Located in a buzzy business and shopping district a short cab ride away from the Bund, one immediately feels you are in a familiar place. All the international luxury stores are moments away but as a counterpoint there is a beautiful park and Buddhist temple reminding you that you are in China. The hotel itself is Asian contemporary done in a dark sexy minimalist style with all the right understated touches. Public areas are tasteful and always a great soundtrack of lounge music playing.
The rooms are spacious and again understated but clearly refer to the place evident in the architectural details and rich warm materials used in the decoration.
A very high level of service, discreet and polite and always there when you need or want something. Great concierge staff too.
Breakfasts were delicious with a huge selection of western and Chinese choices. Great gym and facilities.
Overall a sexy sophisticated contemporary hotel that gets everything right!
