This hotel must be very new as everything looked pristine, the surrounding area has a few bars and restaurants which look quite good and easy for foreigners to use.
The room I had was stunning with a huge picture window looking out onto Shanghai city, I could look out from my huge and conformable bed and watch the city light up in the evening.
The breakfast section was not as good as the Marriott Courtyards' that I use but was still OK, the evening buffet selection was REALLY good for a foreigner, all-you.can eat selection with some excellent international dishes, I loved it.
The morning check out was a bit stressful, if you are a quiet person then you will find people pushing in front at the desk delaying your departure, and the process seemed slow & complicated with staff behind the desk looking nervous, this is an international problem but still frustrating and it is the last memory you take when leaving a hotel.
As said this hotel is stunning but it is out-of-the way, the most expensive taxi into town was 150 RMB, about $20, which if you go in and out a few times makes the place an expensive option. Ideally the hotel should run a shuttle.
