Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 May 2009

This is the best Le Meridien I have ever stayed at. The club lounge was amazing, all the restaurants are fantastic, the staff if wonderful. Be sure to have a drink at the bar on the top floor - the views are stunning at night. This is a 5-star hotel in Shanghai - can't imagine anything better.

I've stayed in a few properties in Shanghai and for the rooms this is one of the best. Location is superb as well, for tourism, being on the corner of Renmin Square and Nanjing East Road, easy access to metro. From the hotel to the metro I only got asked a couple of times if I wanted a fake Rolex which is pretty good compared to Nanjing East Road.

The negative point for me was the breakfast. The first morning (a Sunday) the buffet restaurant was full and after waiting a few minutes in a queue I was taken to an additional area around the corner from the lobby area which had an inferior atmosphere and a reduced selection of breakfast offerings. The second morning I had the normal breakfast and it was absolutely superb with much more variety. If breakfast is important to you, insist on sitting in the main area.

Good Ambience, good place to stay for business / events.

If you are on a leisure trip to shanghai then you need to find hotels which are closer to shopping places & tourist attractions.

Stayed here for 10 days at the tail end of 3 week Mission for the Summer Para-Olympics.

The service is top notch; the staff really care about ensuring your stay is perfect.

Was upgraded to a suites as a SPG Platinum.

The club floor lounge has one of the best views in the city and offer an excellent selection of drinks and tapas.

Walking distance to all the main sight seeing areas.

We stayed in Le Royal Meridien after last minute changes from our package tour. And we were not disappointed! The rooms were very spacious. Bed was comfortable. Toiletries was complete.... L'occitane for toiletries!! Amenities were also complete

Location was perfect. Right in Nanjing Road. Very accessible to the most department stores in Nanjing.

Concierge was very helpful and knowledgable about where to go and what to do in Shanghai. Most of them speak good English as well.

One drawback is that wi-fi is not free. Housekeeping service is quite slow was well... maybe because its almost fully booked hotel.

Breakfast has a very wide selection... from smoked salmon appetizer to canape to egg benedict.

I would love to stay in this hotel again!

I just returned from a 4 day stay in Shanghai during Easter. I think the Le Royal Meridien Shanghai is a decent choice.

LOCATION : The hotel is located in the centre of Shanghai, next to the Nanjing West Rd Shopping street and several malls including Raffles City. The People's Square subway station is below it. The location cannot be better and is much more convenient for tourists than Pudong or Xujiahui. Costs RMB140 by taxi from Pudong airport.

ROOMS: The design is ultra modern and is very comfortable. The view from the room
is spectacular. The bed is comfortable. I appreciate the l'Occitane toiletries.

SERVICE: Excellent except for the waiters at the Chinese restaurant, who are rather aloof. Most staff speaks good English and are helpful and thoughtful. Check-in and concierge are efficient on the whole.

BREAKFAST : Excellent with wide range of choice and as good as any hotel in Asia.

I stayed a night at this hotel in April 2009. As an SPG Platinum member I was given a Royal Club room. While the view was good, I was disappointed with the size and layout of the room. This all-glass bathroom is effectively part of the room itself.

I was also surprised to find wi-fi chargeable even in the Royal Club lounge. The lounge itself was nice and spacious, but not outstanding compared to other SPG lounges in Asia I've visited, including Westin Bund Centre, Westin Kuala Lumpur, Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur.

All-in-all, I was disappointed with my stay given the good reviews and ranking.
