It is quite far from everything- public transportation, the city, the airport. It is however probably the best high end hotel which is a 20 minute drive from the airport. Large comfortable rooms (except they gave us 2 single beds although we asked for a king/queen). Friendly staff. Pricey for what you get.

The hotel is located quite near to the Pu Dong airport which is obviously convenient in case you just need to stay there overnight. However, it turned out to be a hassle to persuade one of all the taxi drivers to take us to the hotel the night before departure. In the end, however, everything worked out fine - and... More

Excellent hotel from all points of view. The room was spotless and with a modern design. We use it for one night on the way to Pudong Airport. The hotel is providing free shuttle bus to Pudong Airport at every hour interval. Staff was very friendly and check in was very fast. Will stay here again for sure.

The bed must be the most comfortable I have ever slept on, felt like marshmallow with silky soft linen. Smart room technology. The breakfast was very good. Relatively close to the airport. Exceptional value for money.

We were very pleased with all aspects of our stay here. The room was lovely and spotless. The bathroom was fantastic with its super modern design and amenities. Breakfast buffet offered everything -both western and Chinese . The made to order wanton soup was delicious. Staff was very friendly but limited in the English language.

We really enjoyed this hotel on our journey from NYC to Chiang Mai, Thailand. There is a free shuttle from Pudong Ariport but be sure to book this ahead of time!! The shuttle itself was a bit funny as we had to walk some of our bags from the pickup area to the parking garage and our poor courier was... More

Stayed here for a night during a business trip - hotel is quite a distance from the Bund ( an hour) but very conveniently located 20 min from Pudong Airport so great for catching an early morning flight. The rooms are very large and luxurious, breakfast is good and reception services competent, overall a very good package

The hotel itself is very good: nice room, good bathroom, and comfortable environment. Quiet and good service. It offers a free shuttle service to the airport. But make sure you book your seat in advance. Most customers staying here need to go to the airport and you won't want to find a taxi in the very last minute. In my... More
