Stayed at this hotel last Friday and Saturday night with my partner while we were meeting parents in Shanghai. This was without a doubt one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. The amenities were great, the spa, pool and salon were really cool too but best of all (for me) was the gym. This is the first actual, decent, proper gym with a selection of weights that I've seen in any hotel. Usually you just the token several machines, but I would go to this gym if it was located here in Nanjing, even if the hotel wasn't attached.
Further to that, the executive lounge with chocolate buffet and view was a lot of fun, but after living in China for three months it was the breakfast which really lit up our stay. Good hotels like this usually have decent buffets but the Hongta's was sensational, one of the best meals we had in Shanghai - and we even went to Kafer which is a five star german restaurant with prices to match the amazing food.
I am shocked that anyone would describe this hotel as average, but we've stayed in quite a few hotels in China and this was our favorite.
PS - This is the first Chinese hotel I've stayed in with a decent mattress on the bed and not the typical Chinese concrete hardness that they love so much.
