Concierge.com's insider take:

Opened in late 2007, this twin-towered property doesn't get the 'Grand' title because there's already a Grand Hyatt nearby, however it's certainly of Grand Hyatt standard, but with a more contemporary deluxe style. Perched on the up-and-coming North Bund strip, overlooking the U-shaped bend in the Huangpu River, the hotel's visual positioning is one of its biggest selling points. The rooms, bars, and restaurants have panoramic views of old and new Shanghai, from the neoclassical Bund to the soaring Pudong skyline. The 631 guest rooms are equipped with floor-to-ceiling windows, rotating plasma TVs, iPod docks, DVD players, and glass-paneled bathrooms with rain forest showers. The Vue restaurant on the 30th and 31st floors serves modern takes on traditional European dishes and is designed like a modern residence with separate lounge, library, and kitchen areas—its roof deck offers Shanghai's premier cocktail-with-a-view setting. The centerpiece of Xindalu, another of the four restaurants, is a hand-built brick oven for preparing the restaurant's signature dish: roast Peking duck. The contemplative, water-themed Yuan Spa (Yuan means "source of the water") fuses Chinese and Asian wellness treatments in an elegant interior of blond wood and emerald-veined white marble.

Appeared in the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List, a directory of the world's best hotels and resorts, in 2009
From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

From this double-towered high-rise on the north end of the city's famous waterfront, guests are granted a full frontal view of Shanghai's time-warping Blade Runner–meets–Beaux Arts panorama; the spectacle is unparalleled from Vue, the rooftop bar, with its cushioned daybeds and a Jacuzzi. Staff perform with seasoned expertise, addressing guests by name despite the large number of rooms (631) and facilitating local arrangements as if everyone were a VIP. Rooms in the West Tower are clad in dark wood and granite with artful mother-of-pearl headboards. Plush lounge chairs roomy enough for two are perfect spots from which to watch boats ply the Huangpu River. Details such as a flat-screen TV that rotates, state-of-the-art temperature controls, and an impressive DVD collection make rooms enjoyable as well as comfortable. The breakfast buffet is seemingly endless, with flaky croissants, fresh fruit, and dim sum doled out by women who previously held court at some of the area's most popular dumpling dives. Also worth a reservation is Xindalu-China Kitchen, famous for its Peking duck.
