- The Portman Ritz-Carlton, ShanghaiFirst to Review
The Portman Ritz-Carlton offers the unique experience of being able to forget where you are for the entirety of your trip if you so desire. Just beyond the smudge-less glass doors and convenient cab line awaits a world easily confused with home: Starbucks, an import grocery store, an upscale burger joint, American-style bakery and practically everything else you could ever want or need. Within the hotel confines is an equally comfortable space designed to help guests relax and soak up the life of luxury. The fitness center is so well appointed it could inspire even the laziest couch potato to at least venture a workout: think fresh fruit, ice water with your choice of citrus slices and one of the city’s nicest indoor pool areas.Recommended for:

Aside from the extremely central location, the Portman Ritz-Carlton is a pretty standard high-end business hotel. As the central point in the Shanghai Center, the hotel is surrounded by all the western conveniences that are available in Shanghai. Included but not limited to a bakery/coffee shop, pizza place, Starbucks, Italian restaurant, and a western grocery store. The hotel in itself is very nice, friendly staff and very helpful management. Rooms are pretty standard, nothing that would surprise a guest but very clean and welcoming with all the amenities that you'd expect from the brand. Perfectly nice hotel but honestly nothing special that would make it stand out from the hotels in the area in the same price range. The only standout point of the hotel is the nice pool area, it's rare to find outdoor pools in Shanghai hotels so that is a welcome change.Recommended for:

Conveniently located on bustling Nanjing Xi lu, the Ritz Carlton Hotel is a full service hotel. Literally. They have not only one, but three Clefs d’Or (gold key, marking service) meaning that customer service is their priority. The hotel has several dining outlets including an Italian restaurant, which is a favorite among locals for its modern twists to Italian classics. The guest rooms are simple with no surprises; everything you need for a business trip or Shanghai getaway. The pool is unique in that it has an indoor and outdoor space and you can swim from one side to the other. Pretty nice when it’s sweltering on a summer day. The Chinese restaurant has some of the coolest tables I’ve seen in a while; large tables with high backs make the diners feel like they’re in their own room. While its not as modern as its sister Ritz in Pudong, the Portman Ritz Carlton definitely has a great location on Nanjing road and is surrounded by dining and shopping galore.Recommended for:
