Our stay in China ended in Shanghai and this hotel was fantastic. The beds were so comfortable and the luxury of having a toilet separated from the shower area by a door was terrific. Smokers have their own separate area which is far away form the other dining areas, making it comfortable to people who loathe the stench of cigarette... More

My family spent two nights at this hotel in December. We arrived too early to check in on the first day so we left our luggage there and headed out for the day. The hotel is situated only a short walk to the Bund and within steps of a great pedestrian shopping street featuring lots of restaurants, ATMs and people... More

My wife and me were here for 1 night only in early November 2014. We were catching a next night flight back for home. Arrived in evening from a decently long journey from the train station where the bullet train from Beijing arrived. This helped us to see some of the city too. Very central hotel. Pretty luxurious. Grand lobby... More

This local branded hotel can certainly challenge the international brand names. Location is a pretty good being close to People's square, museums, shops and bund. This property if the higher end property compared to its sister hotel next door. I believe they are under the same owner. The room is beautiful and luxurious. Housekeeping did a great job keeping the... More

The location of the hotel is very good, close to important tourist sites like the Bund and Nanjing Road shopping street. This is its biggest selling point. The hotel room itself is pretty spacious. Decor and furniture has a bit of an Old Shanghai theme to it, which is pretty nice. What I did not like is its overzealous central... More

I just spent four nights in this hotel was absolutely amazed at how good it was. The reception area was spacious with very little waiting time, the buffet breakfast was huge and the buffet dinner even bigger. I was on business here and spent plenty of time at the restaurants waiting for suppliers. The gym and pool had enough equipment... More

My third visit to this hotel confirms it is still up there with the very best. Rooms: Huge, comfortable, very well appointed, all amenities, a great and large toilette, sensational bedding. A practical and elegant desk to work. Good complimentary wifi. It can't get better. Location: You are in the centre of the Shanghai, walking distance to every interesting point... More

Hello fellow travellers. I stayed at this hotel with a friend of mine one night only prior to our cruise from Shanghai to Singapore. As we arrived at PVG airport we literally sailed trough immigration and our baggage was already making the rounds on the carousel. Getting a cab into down town can be a bit of a challenge but...

We booked this hotel only a few months ahead through Orbitz for a really low price. I was really surprised at the value we got. The hotel was indeed "Grand" in size, sleekness, and decor. And it was only a block off Nanjing Road, and about 6 or 7 blocks from the Bund. I was really surprised at the location,... More

I have stayed in many hotels in China but this one is by far the best. Perfectly located. Clean and well equipped rooms. The staff is very polite and helpful at the reception, the concierge, the bell boys, the executive lounge waiters and waitresses etc. The only major problem again is language as very few can speak and understand English....
