This hotel exudes opulence. It's recently (2010) been renovated and it was truly a surprise find. If you can, join the Fairmont Gold Club to enjoy the great breakfast, divine afternoon tea and delicious canapés after 5. (Jeez I sound like an ad !) Avoid going on public holidays ! We were there during their National day and the area (the Bund) was extremely busy- even for the locals. After walking amongst an endless crowd all day the Fairmont lobby was like an oasis. The narrow and long winding corridors became more interesting as time went by, as did the little elevator . Loved the gym ! We had a suite with adjoining deluxe king room and altogether it was huge. Our family of 5 loved it. You must go to the rooftop for the view over The Bund, which is amazing and especially breathtaking at night. Even if you're not eating at the restaurant on the 9th floor the waiters will let you go through to see the view. The location is central and perfect for getting around Shanghai. It's a 5 min walk to the train station. Loved it.
