I travel to Shanghai regularly on business and typically spend 100 room nights a year in Shanghai. I've sampled several hotels in the downtown area but much prefer the Westin. The rooms are very generous, quiet, and the beds are very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and efficient. Superb leisure facilities and in house Banyan Tree Spa is excellent although expensive. Wide selection of inhouse restaurants are fairly expensive and quality can be so-so. Prego, the Italian restaurant, is my favourite. However, there are many excellent restaurants in the area to suit all tastes/budgets.
Good selection of TV channels although a couple of the movie channels often give poor quality reception. For business users, the business centre is well equipped although wireless access is very slow (wire connection is better but attracts a daily fee). There aren't enough lifts so during busy times it can take a while to get to the ground floor.
The executive lounge is very comfortable and a nice place to spend an hour at the end of the working day.
