The location is great but most rooms have no views. The products provided is top of the line and the jazz bar, though did not play jazz when we were there, is a nice old time Shanghai fair. The facility is older even after the renovation. The switches are so over-used that one is hard to read what the switch is for. The shower room insulation is old so that water leaks to the toilet area whenver the shower is used.
Don't pick this hotel if you don't like the smoking smell. We asked non smoking room. But the staff told us there is no non smoking room when we get there. We had to stay there for 6 days since we already prepaid everything. You can also hear the bell ring from the bund bell tower every 15 mins from 6am to 11:30pm. It was really unpleasant stay in Shanghai.
