Great overall experience with this hotel. Positives- Large rooms, very antique-ish interiors, great restaurants (including the Jazz club and great views from the Cathay room which also had amazing brunch). I am from HK so the price for all these amenities (AND the fact that it is RIGHT on the Bund) seemed rather cheap compared to tiny HK rooms at under 200 USD per night. I got free wi-fi but seems like that's not standard (but these days it's not with most of the hotels worldwide). Close to shopping centres and great restaurants facing the Bund. Very helpful staff. Free coffee machine (Nespresso type) is a touch I always admire. Negatives- I took off one star as the in-room entertainment (TV) was not great. They had a DVD player but no DVDs, and there was no On-demand feature. This should bother you only if you come to Shanghai to spend time indoors. I did end up spending one night indoors so this was a bit of a letdown. The floors are HUGE (think they have 70 rooms per floor) so you may have to walk a bit to get to your room, but it's not too bad. Overall, loved the place and would definitely consider it for my next trip to Shanghai!
