I stayed at Dorsett Shanghai for 1 night and was thoroughly impressed. First, the rate (through booking.com) was extremely reasonable at Y588 per night including 15% tax but not inclusive of breakfast. Second, the service was impeccable. Compared to my previous two nights at 88 XIntiandi which is more than double the price, Dorsett Shanghai's staff is much more attentive. You do feel that they all want to go the extra miles to help. Third, location is extremely convenient to get around the city as it is right next to Line 2 at Century Park. Although I didn't feel right I am in Shanghai at all as it is right opposite Century Park and most surrounding buildings are relatively low rise. Fourth, the room is nicely decorated and has everything that you would want in a hotel room - strong water pressure, crisp linens, good and free wifi signal, large TV with decent English programs and clean. Perhaps two negative comments that I may have about the room are the hardness of the bed/pillow and the cleanliness of the sink (it was clean but not 5 out of 5). All in all I would highly recommend Dorsett Shanghai if you need a value for money and convenient base for when you are in Shanghai for shopping or visiting the Shanghai Expo (which I did).
