“Very Nice Stay”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

Recently stayed at the Royal Meridien for two nights at an end of a business trip in China. I was upgraded to a Superior Room with a great view of the city. The hotel is centrally located along Nanjing Road. Service was very good. Breakfast buffet was excellent. The spa was nice but nothing special. They did have a nice pool inside but the logistics of getting there from the changing rooms was a little awkward.

Overall a great stay and would reccomend for anyone traveling to or through Shanghai.

Great place to stay. The staff are courteous and helpful. Some fantastic views of the city from the room. We were on on the 37th floor and the city looks stunning especially by night.

The elevators take some getting used to - a different elevator from ground to lobby and another elevator to the floor. However that's not a drawback, just an observation:)

Stayed for three nights in a Club Royal Deluxe Room in October 2013. Highly recommend the Club level rooms as they are on the higher floors, and include access to the Club Lounge. City views are as good as the view of the Bund.

My husband and I spent a few days at the Royal Meridien Shanghai to celebrate 2013 New Year. The rooms were nice and modern - not luxurious, but comfortable enough. The Royal Meridien Shanghai enjoys a fantastic location, bang on in the middle of Nanjing Road.

The highlight of our stay was the Club Lounge - great selection of canapes in the afternoon and drinks in the evening.

The spa was also very good, although the therapists speak limited English

Probably the only downside to our stay was the aggressive selling of room upgrades by the reception staff upon check-in

Overall, good value for money and a memorable stay

Room Tip: Club rooms are definitely worth it

Great location right on Nanjing Road (although taxis seem to know it by saying Shimao, and not Le Meridien). The checkin was very friendly and quick and while the elevators were complicated there was enough people to show which way to go to the right ones. The room is very modern and amazing views over Shanghai with the giant windows. The breakfast spread was superb and I spent a lot longer there and ate a lot more than usual! They have a brunch on Sundays which looked really good and busy but I already had plans to go outside so I didn't sample it. the bed was very comfortable and the room nice and light. The bathroom is a bit open plan and quite trendy I suppose.

Room Tip: Great views from higher floors.

This is a beautiful high rise hotel with great service. The lobby is on something like the 15th floor which is not common in American hotels but maybe more common over here. That said it takes a little while to get from the ground floor to the lobby. The staff was very attentive and helpful. The allowed me to convert some money to Chinese yuan or remimbi (same thing). The hotel itself is in a very big building that was easily identifiable when looking at the skyline. I liked it architecturally and the public places were very modern with lots of marble and clean lines. While Le Meridien does not have as many locations in the US they are part of the Starwood chain along with Westin and Sheraton and I found it be similar to a Westin which is one of my favorite chains.

I ate at the restaurant buffet one night and it was good although I dont think I would have raw octopus again, I did enjoy the other offerings. The hotel was close to our company's offices overlooking Peoples Square and the Shanghai museum and other public buildings which is a great space in a city that seemed to have limited green space. I did enjoy the dramatic views from the hotel bar at the top of the hotel. You have great views of the surrounding buildings and the high rises in the Pudong area. I will say meals at the hotel were generally far more expensive than eating out at other restaurants I went to by and large part. This was also true of their breakfast buffet. There is a nice mall a couple blocks away towards Peoples Square and it is also close to a number of high end shops on Nanjing Rd. as well and a short walk to the Bund.

I will say that one thing I really did not care for the open view of the bathroom area into the living room area of the room through the clear glass window. Being the only one in the room it was not a problem but if I were sharing the room I would have found that uncomfortable. Also regarding the bathrooms, they had a nice tub as well as a rain shower. You definitely should try the rain shower it was very nice. They also had some great terry cloth robes that were nice after a relaxing shower.

Exquisite decor, VIP treatment, prime location, best describe Le Royal Meridien Shanghai. Don't miss their breakfast buffet spread... it is sumptuous! Nanjing Rd. and the Pedestrian Mall is right next to the hotel. Look out for the signboard at the ground floor that will lead you there. There is a metro station a short walk away if you need to travel far distance. Taxi is more convenient for nearer destinations though finding one in a rainstorm will be impossible and there will be a long queue of guests waiting. There is a smartphone in your room if you need a mobile. The room has all the amenities you need. They have thought out everything for their guests. Pull the curtains apart and catch the breath-taking view of brightly-lit buildings at night. I like the housekeeper who offers to clean the room in the evening. She will give you a great big smile and greeting everytime. Hotel staff understands English, some speak very well too. Guest relations is excellent. Overall, top notch!
