The title says it all. The hotel is steps away from the Nanjing Road pedestrian mall, across the street from People's Square park (and several museums), attached to the New World Emporium shopping mall, and a block away from the subway.
Service was great from the minute we walked in the door. We had booked our stay using Radisson reward points, but still got an upgrade to a very nice suite. Our room faced People's Square and the view from our room was gorgeous, especially at night.
We had a large sitting area with half bath, and very large bedroom, plus full bath with separate tub and shower. We also received welcome flowers and fruit. Everything was beyond our expectation.
Every employee we met bent over backward to respond to our needs, even the gift shop staff. ( FYI - their gift shop staff will barter - no need to pay what the price tag says!) We received the randomly generated Radisson survey when we got home and after returning it, received a thank-you email response from the hotel GM.
As with most hotels, the restaurants are expensive. We did spring for a western breakfast (one of the the things our son misses the most...) and it was okay but very pricey. Also, remember this is China, so don't expect a good cup of coffee. There is a Breadtalk (which is a bakery chain with stores located throughout Asia) just a block or 2 away on the pedestrian mall, so we recommend that for really good pastries and great coffee. Delicious! Breakfast for 2 at a Breadtalk cost less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks. The Skydome bar is rather dated in decor, but the view is spectacular.
