Of the three Intercontinental Hotels in Shanghai,each one has its own character,I visited the Expo brand a few weeks ago and arrived after midnight.Upon entering into the lobby my first impression was wow,all this space the lobby was vast areas of marble,great lighting an open area for visitors to relax and enjoy and prompt service at the 24hr coffee shop.My room was on the Club level and the extra paid for a suite was well worth it. Everything was top line from the flat screen tv's and very inviting to stay and relax the bathroom had a circular jacuzzi.When the morning sun came through the windows I could see I was located almost on the river maybe a short taxi ride from down town.
The Club floor is the largest I have ever seen,the staff exceptional and cater to every whim,the buffet breakfast was fantastic as were the views of Shanghai,this will be considered the flagship of the hotel group and the title is well deserved.The evening buffet had a huge seafood section and varied sushi and had many different stations.Adjacent to this there is a lively bar with nightly entertainment.It served as the best few days I had ever spent in Shanghai,certainly worthy visiting and excellent value for such a prestigious hotel.
