I stayed here for the 2nd time and this hotel will not disappoint.
Firstly, it's on the Bund and a nice stroll on the Bund at night is not up be missed with the Pudong pearl tower visible from hotel entrance. This hotel with the green roof top is a distinct feature within the Bund landscape. Further on about 10 minutes away is Nanjing Road east where the shops are.
The entrance of the hotel looks normal till you walk in and the lobby gives you a sense of the historical significance of this hotel when it was known as the Cathay and the most expensive hotel in Shanghai at one time.
The rooms are spacious and classic in design. Extremely comfortable beds and lovely bathroom witha nice bathtub.
Service is nice and polite and very attentive. The staff especially the concierge staff are extremely helpful and can organize tours for you.
If this doesn't already entice you to stay here, there's a jazz bar near the lobby with the oldest jazz band where the members are all above 70 years old !
