POSITIVES -Comfortable bed, great breakfast buffet (lots of Chinese and Western options), English speaking reception, and attentive staff. My housekeeper always made sure I had plenty of the complimentary bottled water. The Chinese acrobats theater is right across the street too. At first, I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights as part of a tour I had purchased. When the tour ended, I stayed in Shanghai another night. I was so pleased with the hotel that I booked the extra night in it. NEGATIVES -Wifi is NOT free and although the location around the hotel was nice (by a high-end designer mall), it was not close to any must-see sights and there was not any night life within walkable distance. A taxi was necessary to get to get anywhere. And unless you can afford Hermes, Cartier, Louis Vutton, and other expensive brands in the designer mall next door, you have to take a taxi to get to the more affordable shopping.
