We stayed here for 3 nights after a cruise and we were disappointed. We had stayed at a property at Hong Kong and the comparison was stark. The 5 star rooms were as expected, but the occasional switch and phones didn't work properly. Staff training really was lacking, they were keen to please, but they lacked the skills you expect...

On my frequent trips to Shanghai I am usually working both sides of the Huang Pu River. The INTERCONTINENTAL SHANGHAI EXPO HOTEL, whether staying in the hotel or just stopping by for a drink in the Liquor Factory and relaxing in 1930s elegance in the hotel gardens is perfect for me. I enjoy the contrast between the old English style...

Nicely appointed and up to the usual standard of a 5 star luxury business hotel. Got a great view of the river and the entire metro area! Stay on 15 and up! Rooms are nicely finished with a Scandinavian look! A little off the beaten path, so quiet. Not good for walking to the Metro though!

On a recent visit here, room large and airy, food was good and various choices to suit all tastes. Did not truly spend much time in the hotel as busy other places, but the qualities are good and would really suit the travelling people on business. Its not in a great location for travellers that seek to visit tourist things,...
