This hotel is situated at the corner of Nanjing Road and the Bund. Right where the famous shopping district intersects with the river walkway. The views from restaurant and breakfast room overlook the river which at night is decorated with boats that are more like floating light shows. You are literally across the street from the Bund where you can take a leisurely walk in the cool air.
The hotel lobby has a very nice bar area with live band in the evening as well. A center rotunda houses a large piece of art highlighting the historical aspects of the hotel. The public spaces are not huge in keeping with the age of the building. This extends to the elevators but but I never had to wait for more than a minute despite their relatively small size.
The rooms are more like suites with a foyer, dressing area, large bedroom and enormous marble bath. The claw footed tub in the bath is a delight. Plenty of high end amenities including an espresso machine and fresh fruit make the room a place you do not mind spending a some time in. The beds are the best I experienced in a hotel in a year. They are complete with luxurious bedding, lots of pillows and silky soft sheets.
I would strongly recommend this hotel for business, couples, and friends. It may be a bit too formal for an active children.
