Stayed there quite a few times and to me it's still in the best location in Shanghai - at the beginning of Nanjing Road shopping plaza, and opposite the People's Square. It is within walking distance of the Bund, of the Pearl Tower, of the French Concession area, and a short taxi drive from the Yu Yuan Gardens and some other attractions and only a short drive from Taikang Lu and XiTianDi with numerous top notch restaurants.
We booked some weeks before through the hotel website and got a great deal. We were upgraded on arrival to an executive room with superb facilities - separate working/sitting area with plasma TV, very comfortable beds, a wonderful bathroom and great views over the People's Square! The rooftop bar is always fun, a bit expensive but the views and the whole atmosphere more than make it up for it! The indoor pool is big and well taken care off, definitely worth going to, especially after a long day in a hot, humid, hectic city of Shanghai.
The decor of the main hotel areas is a bit too glitzy for our personal taste - polished gold etc but this is China afterall! Everywhere was immaculately clean, staff were always helpful and like I said, the restaurant and other facilities were first class. I thought it was superb value for money.
The hotel has a direct entry into the New World department store next door, and is at the end of the pedestrian part of the Nanjing Road, if you want shopping - though we prefer the smaller shops in the French Concession area. The subway stop is right in front of the hotel (Renmin Square, exit 8); there is an open-bus stop just across from the hotel and plenty of taxis to take you around the city.
Will definitely stay there again.
