The first thing you'll notice is the location, this Westin is right in the heart of Puxi and just a short walk from the Bund, home to a number of great restaurants, bars and general hotspots. The facility itself is beautiful and very well kept with comfortable rooms, sprawling common areas dotted with comfortable seating and an attentive, well trained staff. We were only able to stay for a night but I have been to this Westin on a number of other occasions strictly for the brunch. If you have the time, by all means make the effort to attend the Sunday Champagne Brunch. It is a little on the pricey side but is by all means worth it, with a selection of seafood, American and Chinese delicacies paired with a constant flow of Veuve Clicquot champagne ending with an enormous selection of chocolates and desserts.
We missed the Sunday brunch, unfortunately, and had the more simple fare of the morning brunch on Monday, it was still delicious with plenty to offer. The workout facilities have equipment that is a little dated but they are well maintained and there are enough of them that we didn't have to wait for a machine. The room itself was well stocked and comfortable and ours featured a view of the city, the Bund and the river. We had received some vouchers for breakfast and for refreshments but didn't have enough time to sample everything. The staff was helpful and responsive, bringing ice to our room when we decided on a private nightcap within minutes of calling and allowing us a late check-out to coincide with our departure flights. All of this coupled with free WiFi and I can't wait to go back, next time staying over for the Sunday morning brunch...
