We couldn't say enough good things about this hotel. From the moment we stepped into the building, we were greeted and welcomed warmly. After checking in, we stopped for a complimentary happy hour drink on our way upstairs to the room. I originally wanted an orange mimosa, but Bj wanted me to get something authentic and Chinese. He tried to get a Chinese form of liquor but the bartender misunderstood and gave me a large glass of white wine. Unfortunately, neither Bj nor I have any taste for white wine. Regardless, the sentiment by Les Suites Orient to provide a happy hour was delightful.
Our room was the most beautiful- and so very cost effective !- hotel room I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. We checked in for three nights, and throughout the stay thoroughly enjoyed the room's surround sound classical music, seeing the skyline view of the river and Bund, and watching world CNN and Chinese propaganda news in the bathtub.

It's the best most cost effective hotel you will ever stay in guaranteed.

Good experience, good food options, not 5 star but very accommodating.
