InterContinental Shanghai Puxi (Club King Room)
The 5 star InterContinental Shanghai Puxi is located within downtown Shanghai and walking distance to the Shanghai Railway station. With access to numerous metro lines, it is connected to the furthest attractions of the city where the metro can take you but away also from the hustle and bustle of the Nanjing East Road.
I took a night stay at this property before returning back to Singapore on a Rewards Night redemption of 30,000 IHG RC Points and with a cash top-up of Club Access at SGD80++ per night.
The property have 2 separate tower, one for the normal rooms and suites, the other for club rooms and suites, so as a Club Guest, head over to the Club Tower for your check in.
The spacious 60sqm InterContinental Club King Room has an amazing 47inch LCD TV with spacious sofa seating area with mini-bar selection and views of the Puxi commercial area.
What is awesome is the open concept bathroom area which features a double vanity area, jumbo sized luxurious bath amenities from Agaria, separate rainfall shower and deep soaking round Jacuzzi tub! Totally luxurious indeed!
So huge is the tub that it took me a good 30 minutes for it to be fully filled!
Being a Club guest means having access to the exclusive InterContinental Club Lounge which features all day beverages including soft drinks, juices, tea and coffee. The lounge also offers continental buffet breakfast in the morning, select delicacies for high tea in the afternoon and free flow evening cocktails & canapes during the evening.
During the stay the lounge felt quite exclusive, there were not much people at the lounge and the ambience was pretty classy.
The Evening Cocktails & Canapes spread was pretty wide and had a good selection of local and international delicacies although it is surpassed by the better quality spread which I had at the other InterContinental, the InterContinental Shanghai Ruijin.
They offered some dimsum selections, the shrimp dumpling was great, the so as the black bean fried eggplant with minced meat.
Next Morning, I headed over to the Executive Lounge for breakfast instead of the main restaurant as I was lazy to walk over to the main tower for breakfast.
The breakfast was decent, I thought there were ala-carte orders but was told the only ala-carte options they had were the eggs station and the other are the continental buffet options on the table.
As with every hotel stay, the time has come for check out and I headed towards the airport for my homebound flight to Singapore.
