This hotel has a beautiful view of the Shanghai skyline. We booked on agoda.com and got a club level room on the 48th floor for a phenomenal deal. It included free internet, drinks and breakfast. If you want a scrumptious pastry or just need to get your clothes washed visit the Wash Bakery which is less than a half a block out the front door of the hotel. They sell pastries and coffee and for about $10 will wash and dry your laundry. Especially delicious is the coconut raisin pastry.

It's a busy place and there are many hawkers that we had been warned about trying to sell fake watches and ...
... lunch instead. We sit in the ballroom on the 11th floor, at round tables set for 10. In the center of the table is a glass Lazy Susan, filled with a number of small appetizer dishes. We spin the Susan and take nibbles of each appetizer. You can see the photos of the appetizers and the rest of the meal. They are followed by the other courses of soup, pork, beef, cashew chicken, rice, and veggies. While still not “hot” enough, the ...
... but I will say that there are two things I have never been so thankful for in my life. A settled stomach and a western toilet. Trust me, if you’ve ever raced through a park with a bad stomach only to find **** covered squatty potties at every public restroom, you will have a similar thankfulness as well. That was the day of my frog leg adventure, so that’s all I have to say about that.
Yesterday in the park there was a ...
... some toast and a coffee...I ordered a toffee hazelnut latte, which was like sipping a little piece of heaven in a cup. Even better was the bear design in the foam! Matt, who has a strong affinity (to put it nicely) for bears, felt a little short-changed because, as he put it, all he got was a damn leaf. Heh heh heh heh heh.
From there Marion and Ellison led us to The Bund, which is a section of Shanghai that sits on the river and overlooks the newly developed part ...
