Luxury retreat in Shanghai near the Bund

This eye-catching 26-story hotel -- topped with a lotus crown and anchored by a glowing glass staircase -- frequently appears on the Condé Nast Traveler "Gold List." The 570 spacious rooms include Westin's Heavenly bed, free wireless Internet, and an oversized marble soak tub. The two-story Westin Workout Gym, a 20-meter (66-foot) indoor pool, and Banyan Tree Spa provide ample recreation choices. The Stage restaurant hosts the most celebrated Sunday brunch in Shanghai.

Highlights
  • Convenient location between the Bund and People's Square
  • Two-story Westin Workout Gym and large indoor pool
  • Banyan Tree Spa and in-room spa service
  • Three restaurants, including Shanghai's most celebrated Sunday brunch spot
Rooms

A muted white-and-brown color palette and streamlined Art Deco look create a soothing atmosphere in the 570 spacious rooms and suites, which offer city and river views. Rooms feature the Westin Heavenly Bed, flat-screen television, fax machine, and a large desk. Wi-Fi is free, but fees apply for high-speed Internet access. Marble bathrooms have an oversized tub and separate shower stall with a rainforest showerhead. Westin Workout Rooms include exercise equipment en suite.

Dining

Prego, a casual Italian restaurant, offers wood-fired pizzas and an extensive grappa list. EEST Crystal Garden serves up Chinese, Japanese, and Thai dishes. The Stage restaurant -- where guests will find the breakfast buffet -- hosts Shanghai's most celebrated Sunday brunch, complete with acrobats and opera singers. Guests in search of a quick snack should stop at Bliss juice bar and Treats bakery.

Recreation

The Banyan Tree Spa draws on the five traditional Chinese elements -- earth, fire, water, metal, and wood -- for both its interior design and its element facials. The spa lets guests pick from seven massages -- and decide whether to have the massage delivered, for in-room spa service.

Great Hotel

Much nicer than we expected, good value, very nice staff, good breakfast buffet but expensive. Staff was excellent especially getting taxis, helping with reservations, anything. The location is a bit of a walk from the Bund and subways but not bad.

Business trip to SH

The hotel is in a good location. Breakfast is excellent beyond my expectation. However, the front desk staff do not meet my expectation at the Westin level. They are not very friendly.

Hotel staffs need education about service

1. I couldn't find small spoons for yogurt. When i asked, one of hotel male staff brought to me a dirty one. Starting the next morning, they put small spoons on all tables. 2. The same morning, there was a local airplane pilot smoking in a lobby toilet. 3. Staffs don't smile at all when they serve meals or assist customers. Hope this is not a local culture. 4. Had to wait for glasses for juice for about 5 min. Frustrating. 5. They need to UNDERSTAND WHAT SERVICE MEANS because i paid for it. 4.

Disappointed

After being pampered and spoiled at another 5 stars hotel in Beijing, this Westin hotel did not meet our expectations. The room was small, the carpet was old... The location was great. One thing that bothered us was that the staff would only recommend certain restaurants and tour company (seems like we could not use any other company that was not recommended by the staff). Another costumer was complaining about the same issue. When asked about another tour (that we saw in the streets) the staff would just reply that it didn't exist (did they think we were "dumb"?)

Unmissable brunch

The Westin Shanghai's Sunday brunch is unmissable. Sponsored by Veuve Cliquot, there is unlimited champagne, caviar etc. The gym facilities are pretty good (although the machines aren't very new), and the rooms are very comfortable. Service is fantastic. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Great business hotel

Attentive staff, free wi-fi throughout, and great design/decor. Would definitely recommend for the business traveler. I had a 1 bedroom suite which was a nice way to escape from the desk. Luxurious bathroom with toothbrushes and toothpaste and complimentary bottled water--love that!

Excellent place!

Westin Bund Center Shanhai is an outstanding hotel. Staff was very friendly and ready to support any request or information. Well located and close to some shopping areas. It was about 30 min away from airport. Unfortunately due to my limited time, I was not able to take full advantage of their services. Highly recommend to use this place and consider to have enough time to enjoy it.
