This hotel is great, great staff, great restaurant, great rooms, but for now anyway located in a very strange area. Part of the Shanghai Free Trade zone, this hotel is somewhat isolated from the rest of Shanghai. Seems there are many plans for this area, and things are being bulit and constructed, but right now (Oct 2013) my first reaction was where are the people! So time will tell, in 4 or 5 years this may be a very busy area.
The hotel is about 40 minute taxi ride from Downtown, there is a subway line very close. But if your a tourist looking to see the sights of Shanghai this may not be the hotel for you.There do not seem to be any other restaurants (than the ones in the hotel) in the immediate area, but there are some a short taxi ride away, near another major band hotel. There is a Starbuck's right across the street.
But on the good side, the Hotel and its staff are excellent!
