Acceptable, but expect 3* service

It is 1km away from the Shanghai New International Exhibition Center & w/in 2km from food & shopping (Carrefour). It is also close (about 3km) from JingXiao street market. If you intend to go into the financial district or city center (eg JinJiang), it will take 45mins-1.25hrs depending on the time of day; but about 20 mins at night.
Our business deluxe twin room was spacious, very comfortable, had a desktop computer, a cooler for drinks, and tub & bath. But internet connection was slow and there is only 1 english channel on the tv (no cable).
Our queen room was okay. Bed was comfortable, but no tub, no cooler, no desktop, and no lakeview.
Hotel cafe & restaurant closes in the afternoon; there is no fitness center. Rooms at one side of the hotel overlook the lake, it is nice; but the other side have the highway for a view. Food is not impressive. Only 1 manager (Jonathan) speaks conversational english and is very accommodating. There are 1 or 2, who can also speak, but comprehension is terrible.
There is no rose garden as advertised.
If your package does not include breakfast, the breakfast rate is RMB68/person.
