Rated 3 out of 5 by Fredrik Potential for improvements
Hotel is located quite nicely just outside Shanghai city center, with easy access by either taxi or subway. Both indoor and outdoor pool and a nice park to walk around in makes this a nice oasis and getaway from the city. Room was nice and spacious with very comfortable beds. There was a lot of confusion regarding SPG benefits and front desk staff couldnt give any clear answer on what the benefits are for Platinum members, and from 3 different people i got three very different answers so I was actually never able to figure out what they really were...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Makrele666 Outdoor Pool Closed :-(
Overall it was a good stay. However, negative was:
a) The outdoor pool was closed during our entire stay over Labor Day. Actually that pool was the main reason to go there in the first place. Weird enough the outdoor pool was open until 29 April 2013, but then closed over the May holidays, were there were enough customers to use it and it was very warm, too. That does not make sense at all. Furthermore a sign displayed "outdoor pool is closed due to winter, will be opened late spring". That is a lie, as the outdoor pool was open days before. Very disappointing, and brought me down the entire stay.
b) The receptions staff could not find my SPG number in the system. I forgot my card and no, but she was not able to track me in the system...

Rated 3 out of 5 by BingYang The need to increase service level
Le Meriden Sheshan hotel apprears to be a very busy one (full booking last week when I was stying there), but the responsiveness had been very poor (may be because of this) - reception phone can not be dialed through either from room of with mobile; long queue when checking and out. It is understandble that for a very busy hotel it is very difficult to keep the service level, but it should at least meet the basic requirement.
By the way, the facility is great, meybe one of the best that I have seen for SPG!

Rated 1 out of 5 by JC35 This hotel is like a wet market
Service at the restaurant is bad and there is very limited options for food. You have to queue for 45 minutes for breakfast which cost around USD 40 each person. No spoon or fork on the table and not enough waitress to serve.
Not a good hotel for relaxing in the weekend, since it is often filled with hundred of family group.
No ambience of a category 4 SPG hote/ or resort
For the price that you pay, no value for money

Rated 4 out of 5 by angele nice hotel, so so food
great environment, nice swimming pools (indoor and out door), a lot of options for family activities, specially the family with young kid(2-10 years), very comfortable room with kind size bed.
the breakfast quantity is OK, but the taste is just so so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RochelleG Great service
I had a difficult issue that the on duty manager, Alex, went to a great deal of trouble to fix for me. Alex and his staff were extremely helpful and courteous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ellenandbaby Good place for family time
The hotel just looks like a park. You can relax yourself by all kinds of ways. Biking and swimming are recommended. Sands are the most beautiful thing for kids. Wonderful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ranger The best hotel in the area
It is a beautiful resort outside Shanghai city. Room is nice but shower is bad similar to 3 stars hotel. Choice of restaurants is limited and food no good.
Staffs are friendly but need more training. Concierge is efficieny and arranged transportation with no difficulties.

Rated 3 out of 5 by chenying I'm disappointed, maybe because of the timing...
Maybe becuase it's a weekend - lobby is crowded, no one takes our lugguage, no one greets at the gate, and even no towel at the swimming pool!...... it's far from my expectation to the brand.

Good location and facilities, I still don't think that Gold members have any advantage when travelling in China
