A polished hotel, worthy of its 5-star ranking
Posted Oct 15, 2016
My wife and I arrived late at night following a late night internal flight. We arrived well after 1am and were greeted by staff with excellent manners. Our check-in process was swift and we were offered a free upgrade to the Club Room.
Our room was very clean and comfortable with a large king bed. The bathroom, shower and toilet were also very clean and well equipped. Water pressure and temperature were excellent.
The room service is excellent. We ordered our food around 2am and it was swiftly delivered within around 20 minutes. The food was great.
From our window, we could see Shanghai Tower and JinMao Tower (skyscrapers in Lujiazui) in the distance.
The hotel is situated within walking distance to the Xujiahui shopping district and its not too far from Shanghai Hongqiao Airport. At around 1am, we paid just under 100 RMB for the taxi.
One small recommendation I would like to make is for corner of the room (the other side of the pillar) to have a night light installed. The corner appears quite dark when there's minimal lighting in the room. It may discomfort some.
Other than that, if you're a business traveler or a couple wishing to treat yourself, this place is a treat.
