This was a one day lay over before heading back home after nearly 3 weeks on the road in Asia. Wanted something close to Pudong airport....the hotel is quite close and gorgeous as well. Rooms are spacious with all sorts of thoughtful amenities. At night the large pond has colorful lighting and a dancing water display. Very nice touch. Would... More

The hotel is 20 min from airport and approximately an hour from downtown (depends on traffic). Very modern and most staff if fluent in English. Stayed there for 2 weeks while in the area for business. Do not be afraid to walk around. There is a shopping center a block away and a convenience store across the street.

The only regret is we could not stay longer at this very nice hotel. We had finished our two week China trip and were in Shanghai just for night before taking our flight back home. Proximity to the airport and the free shuttle were two main reasons why we chose this property. But not until we checked in did we... More

If you want to spend less than normal for a comfortable, modern room then look no further. This hotel was awesome. My friend and I decided to just stay at the hotel instead of going out (we had just finished a ten day tour and were leaving the country in the morning) So comfortable and the staff were so lovely....

We booked this hotel because it was close to the airport (16 Km) and close to the Cruise terminal (45 Km). Hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful. Dinner and breakfast coupons were included. Cafe restaurant had both local and Western fare food options. We had a king size room with all the high tech features. Only issues was hot... More

We were going to stay in Shanghai only one night and were traveling to another city next day. It took us about 20 minutes from the airport on a very fast highway. It is convenient specially if one is coming from long distances. The hotel is modern, has 4 restaurants and a bar where you can order small plates and... More

Hotel is beautiful. My wife and I stayed here when we where catching an early morning to Hong Kong. I was ready for the standard Puddong Airport hotel which are usually in some sort of area isolated from all life. To our pleasant suprise it is located in a pretty nice little Chinese Village with shops, restaraunts and our favorite;... More

I might be a little bit more biased in my review as I actually only stayed in this hotel after waiting at the Shanghai Airport for 11 hours and then to find out that my flight has been delayed until noon the next day at the end of my business trip in Shanghai. I made a booking for this hotel... More
