Le Meridien Shanghai…location, location, location

It is in the center of everything, closely located near key shopping areas, and sites such as the Shanghai Museum and Grand Theatre; everything you need, popular bards and restaurants are within walking distance, or a short subway ride away. The famous Bund river is only 5 minutes away.

The hotel has many lifts that can be a bit overwhelming at first – but when you get the swing of it it works just fine. Piped through the elevator sound system are the soft sounds of chirping birds and New Age music.

The superb room has floor to ceiling windows with amazing view of either nanjing road or the people’s park, depending on which side of the hotel your room is in. The room is spotless and very cozy with a sexy all glass-encased bathroom that faced the bedroom and the city skyline. Those might weird some people out, but the modern romantic that I am, I thought it was cool. The room comes with even a huge wall-mounted flatscreen TV and  DVD/CD player.

The fitness center was large, with state-of-the-art machines and a nice vibe.

One bummer that put a negativity into my stay was that the Royal Club Shift Leader, Jackey Zhu, promised to email me a breakdown of the bill within the same day I checked out but 6 days later, there’s still no sign of it. Otherwise, service is friendly and efficient. Clearly, Jackey is their weakest link.

Despite that, this hotel will always be my choice in Shanghai. This is the true truth as I am still saying it as it is…
