We stayed in a Fairmont Gold Room, which was luxurious, as you would expect, with a beautiful and well appointed bathroom. We never worked out how to open the curtains and there was no view as such-but we had not asked for one-but apart from that, it was a delightful retreat after a hard day's sightseeing.
The Executive Club was lovely and had a nice clubby feel to it and the Breakfast and "Happy Hour" fare were both superb!
The Lobby has to have a particular mention. It is spectacular and whatever modernisation has been done, it still exudes that 1930's glamour.
We arrived after a severely delayed flight from Guilin, to a charming welcome and all the staff were exemplary.
In my opinion, the best place to stay in Shanghai!
There is a wonderful view of the fabulous skyline from the 9th floor terrace.
