The services were great.The room was spacious and had all the amenities I required.The staff were friendly and the food was good.I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Shanghai.However, a few of the staff do not know fluent English so it would help to learn some basic Chinese

... but the final destination was the same. The subway station was crazy. We all have metro cards, which are electronic cards you put money on and use them to pay for the subway, bus, and taxis. If we did not have metro cards, we would have had to wait in a line that looked like it never ended. I've never been happier to have a metro card.
Today we're hoping to see more of the French Concession and enjoy the architecture. Perhaps we'll eat lunch while we're there. Until next time!
