Booked at the last minute so was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the hotel given the price. Nice big bed with a very big bathroom. Only down sides were that the room was either cold or hot, with no happy medium and the view was of the nearby train track; certainly not deal breakers and I would happily go back again.
Spent one night at the Shangri-La in a city view delux room. Definitely worth paying the extra money for the incredible and iconic views. From the moment we checked in the service was impeccable, and we were made to feel special from start to finish.
The room was incredibly well appointed. Comfortable large bed, lovely big bathroom with separate bath and shower and even a heated toilet seat!
We dined at Ting in the evening and then had cocktails in the Gong bar - both of which were fantastic and the staff could not do enough for us. The late check out time of midday is great as it allows you time to relax in the morning. We went for a swim before we left - swimming in the 52nd floor was an experience!
All in all a fabulous hotel. It isn't cheap, but I felt it was worth every penny and we'll be back. Thinking of making it an annual event!
