Let's start with an orientation. This hotel looks down on the Bund, the old famous waterfront on Shanghai, but from the Pudong side of the river. It also overlooks the Oriental Pearl, also on the Pudong side. Both beautiful views. There is a luxury shopping mall right next door, IFC. The fitness center is first rate, as is the breakfast buffet. The rooms are simply sumptuous. Big bathtub, separate shower, huge bed, fluffy bathrobes. You know, the Ritz. At night, the view of the Oriental Pearl from the Flair bar is fabulous. And Sea Dong, the Assistant Manager there, is going to take care of you. All the staff service is excellent. Some negatives: you could run a country off the prices they charge for laundry, and traveling to and from the hotel is a hassle because it's on the wrong side of the river. Figure 200 RMB for a taxi ride to and from the airport. And more to get around town. And Shanghai traffic rivals Los Angeles and New York for jams. The "lobby" is on the 52 floor. So it's a two elevator ride from your room to the ground floor. I would recommend this hotel for business, or for couples on a romantic holiday. Families with young children won't find the value good, or the location convenient, unless they have a car (and why would you have a car in Shanghai?).
