Comfortable business hotel
Posted 21-Nov-2016 on Hotels
The Shangri-La is a classic Shanghai hotel, the first of its kind in Pudong district. There are two buildings, the River View (the original) and the Grand Tower (newer). I prefer the River View wing, which has been renovated and offers views of the Bund. Hotel service is impeccable. Swimmers will enjoy the 25-meter lap pool, it's well-maintained and has decent tasting water. The gym by comparison is a little small. Lots of fine dining options for $$$, or you can go to the B1 level of Super Brand Mall right next door for their delicious food court (find the cashier desk and put money on a card, they don't take cash or credit cards at the restaurants). Lujiazui subway stop a 10 minute walk away, through the basement of the IFC Mall.
