The hotel with its excellent location on the Bund, has a commanding view of the Huangpu River and Pudong skyscrapers. From the self opening/closing toilet (LOL) to the super comfortable bed, everything in the room shows 5-star quality. However, it does not have an Executive Lounge. I guess they need the room for the Presidential Suite. Instead, they give you 100 RMB credit in the Long Bar, which does not offer you much value.
Breakfast is served in the magnificent Grand Brasserie. Service was prompt and professional. Hint: although most of the buffet items are OK, order from the menu to get the most delicious breakfast entrees you will ever have.
I would actually give it 4.5 stars because the TV was not hooked up properly and the remote's batteries had to be replaced. Also one of the free spring water bottles was already open. They should have done a more thorough pre-check prior to my check-in. Whey you are a 5-star hotel, there is no room for any error or omission.
