Stayed at the Westin Bund Center Shanghai for a couple of nights while on a recent business trip. The room that I was assigned was fantastic and even had a view of Pudong. I had a great view of the Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower despite my "low" floor. The room was spacious and as with all Westin property, an inviting bed.
The gym set up was a bit unorthodox, with the weights section on a different floor from the rest of the machines. Perhaps the run up and down the stairs is suppose to be a part of your exercise routine. The pool looked great although I did not actually swim in it.
Breakfast on the other hand was somewhat ordinary but hugely adequate for the normal diet. We did not try any of the restaurants at the hotel having arrived late due to a cancelled domestic flight. On the second night, the Concierge recommended a restaurant at the adjoining Bund Center when we asked if there was somewhere we can find Shanghainese food. The Shanghai Uncle in the basement was definitely worth a visit. Just be sure to asked for cold beer if you order a beer as otherwise, you may end up with room temperature beer.
Saw some pictures of Elijah Widjaja of Sinar Mas/APP fame. No wonder we saw so many Indonesians at the hotel and that one can get the Indonesian Nasi Goreng if one so desires.
