The Radisson New World Shanghai is located right in the center of the city in People's Square, not far from popular shopping street Nanjing East Rd.
The location is probably the best feature of the hotel, as it's convenient to get to most places in Shanghai from the hotel, and there's even a metro station just across the street.
Like many 5-star hotels in China, it's not really a five star hotel, but given some fancy plaque anyway by some tourism board that probably wants to claim that China has more five star hotels than anywhere else. Either way, the hotel is somewhere between a really nice three star and decent four star.
I stayed in a suite and the room was definitely a decent size, and had all the standard amenities.
If you're dead set on staying in People's Square, this is probably a better value option to Le Meridien or JW Marriott (both also in People's Square), but not as luxurious or elegant as other five star hotels in Shanghai.
For a good view of the city, I recommend going to their bar, located on the top floor.
