I’ve stayed in many hotels across Shanghai but the Mandarin Oriental Pudong reset my benchmark for a 5 star experience. From the moment you arrive, the attention to detail and the quality of service provided by the staff is second to none. The rooms are very spacious and offer all the required and unexpected amenities including an incredible assortment of adaptors and cables for all of your electronic gadgets and gizmos.
The Club lounge is a must if you plan to spend a significant amount of time in the hotel or if you’re travelling with your spouse. It’s a fantastic relaxing space to unwind, read a book, have a glass of wine or just distress after a long day. The staff members are all attentive and very welcoming.
If you are looking for a gym and pool this is the best I’ve seen in an urban hotel. Typically hotels take a careful photo across the gym in to a mirror so that the space looks twice as big. That’s not the case here - they have plenty of cardio machines; exercise stations; free weights; jump ropes, there is a separate studio (with classes) that even has boxing gloves and sparring pads... And let’s not forget the pool. A proper pool – 25meters and heated and the changing area has steam and sauna rooms. It's open 24 hours a day so jetlag or sù zuì recovery has never been so easy.
I could go on and on but having stayed at more than a dozen different 5 star hotels across Shanghai there is really no need to look elsewhere.
