Not sure how they plan to price this hotel but it's in a very good location, walking distance to Nanjing West subway station and lots of interesting bars and restaurants in the Jing'An Area of Shanghai. I'd say it's now tied with the 12 on Hengshan for the best located Starwood hotel in Shanghai.

We check-out at 8:00pm and go to Nanjing West subway station, than metro line 2 to Maglev station and we cross terminal 2 at airport at 9:12pm

We was at LRM 4 days and 2 days at StR, difficult to answer depend on preferences.
Ask me what you want I will try to answer.

Our room 4112, it was Caroline Astor Suite (only 71sqm).
I think we were first guests at this room :












In the dressing room we have a lot of dust, missed bathrobes and towel in the bathroom. But it was first day after opening this hotel.

Thanks for sharing! This property looks fantastic. A definite for my next visit...even though I've absolutely loved the Peninsula Shanghai up to now.

Caroline Astor suite looks more modern than a typical St. Regis decor. I like the Imperial Suite at Le Royal Meridien better.

This also doesn't look as nice as the suite I am staying in now at the Grand Hyatt using a Tier Suite Upgrade.

Was upgraded tonight to a Caroline Astor Suite proactively, without asking.

Offered 500 StarPoints and 4pm checkout.

My rate included breakfast, so I did not inquire whether this was a benefit for Platinums.

Some observations:
- English proficiency of the staff (bellboy, check in staff, butler, Chinese restaurant waiter) is average. I would say even below par for a hotel of this level.
- Chinese restaurant was empty when I dined at 8:00pm. I was the only one there for the duration of my dinner. Menu was ridiculously expensive, and the food was average.
- I peeked into the Japanese restaurant, and saw it similarly deserted during dinner.
- The Social Restaurant at the G/F had only a few tables occupied during dinner.
- The Drawing Room (bar) was totally empty at 9:30pm
- The 24-hour gym has a good selection of Life Fitness equipment. I like the treadmills...showing the scenery of Auckland like I was running around the city while I was jogging on the treadmill

Will try breakfast at Social tomorrow.

Have now tried this hotel once; will probably not be returning. Going to W Shanghai tomorrow!

- English proficiency of the staff ... terrible (I don't include front desk staffs)
- On check-in you must chose breakfast or points if your rate don't include it.
- Caroline Astor Suite is small and I ask by phone if it is correct room.

Apollo13 pls. make same pictures of this W Shanghai.

Maybe I'm missing something but the StR has just opened, as has the W Shanghai. Yet people are surprised by empty restaurants?

English proficiency is an issue at hotels throughout China. Newer hotels would be expected to have more issues in this regard. It seems a stinging criticism by some here for the StR but the same posters make it less critical when the same is true at the W Shanghai. I don't get it?

It's also curious that one poster finds the Astor Suite to be too small...while no photos of that suite are shared here--despite photos of plenty of public spaces being shared. Did someone really stay here or not?

Confusing criticisms and confusing commentary from some of the most recent contributors. While we appreciate everyone's contributions, some levels of consistency are to be appreciated.
