"Nice hotel for a business stay"
Stayed in this hotel for 3 weeks during my business trip in Shanghai. It is located next to the EXPO area of Shanghai and therefore unfortunately not easily accessible via public transport. There is hardly anything of interest in the close vicinity of the hotel, unless you prefer German food. In this case you can go to the Paulaner Brewery that is just 3 minutes walk away on the main road. The hotel itself looks modern, typical Intercontinental style. I have booked a standard room and got an upgrade to a corner suite on the 16th floor (see pictures enclosed to my review) as I have the Royal Ambassador status. Unfortunately I haven't received Club Lounge access what was a bit disappointing as I usually get it in Asia. Nevertheless, all other RA treats (such as free minibar) was included. Although the minibar only had beer (both local and export) and wine on offer (good for me). The room, as you can see also on the pictures was amazing. Really huge, with a lot of room and nice view (I did not face the city, rather more the river and some industrial areas, but was nice to look out). Sleeping quality was nice, the bed was huge and there was also a second TV on the opposite wall showing also some international channels (I think it was CNN and BBC World). What I specifically liked was the bathroom with the shower. It was quiet a big shower and therefore very comfortable. The only downside of the bath was the bath tub in a sense that once I have filled it up with water, I was not able to open the tub again to let the water flow out of it. Therefore I have always left it there and waited for the maid to solve it:) The SPA...simply amazing. They had a 25 meter pool, where you could properly swim and also a big hot tub (however this one was I think not operating). Breakfast was great, with a lot of different options (both local, other Asian and western food). The staff itself was kind, although in some cases you could feel the issues with the lack of their English knowledge. Generally, despite the fact that I did not get Club Lounge access, I was satisfied with my stay. Whether I will return' To be honest I don't know, since there are as far as I know 3 other Intercontinental hotels in Shanghai and I haven't been to them:)
The Location is very good for the Expo been almost a week and rooms are clean, comfortable nice river view, at breakfast time service is not that great also not that clean very impersonal and lack of management. The bar and Chinese restaurant are very good also not that far from downtown, would recommend definitely this Hotel.
Had Business Meeting there last Thursday/Friday. Hotel is nice. Rooms clean, beds comfortable and showers hot. Some rooms has river views but I did not have. Breakfast was good. Not much within walking distance but the river mall which is in the old expo site has plenty of places to eat. Would stay again.
"high quality business hotel"
high quality business hotel well positioned for expo. it's quite a large hotel and therefore a bit impersonal but the rooms are good, quiet (except for the occasional ship horn - woken by one at 5am this morning!). the gym is excellent and a nice changing room with sauna and steam rooms. breakfast is very good. i'd stay here again if I was at the expo otherwise there are nicer places in Shanghai
