After 2 recent stays I am happy to recommend this hotel as a good value place to stay in Shanghai. It is a little away from the main tourist and shopping action in Shanghai but there are some good restaurants and pubs nearby and transport is no problem with readily available taxis and the subway not far away.

Stayed here many times in the past and always been happy with the service. Again this stay was no exception. Maybe being a Platinum member of the priority club helps, but all in all I had no problem.

Well, I have been at this hotel for about 40 minutes and I can say this: 1. Front desk is polite but clueless and speaks little English 2. Air conditioner was broken and someone came to fix it, but guess what it's still cold 3. I am platinum with IHG and if this room is an upgrade I would hate... More

Our organization recently hosted another large event at the Crowne Plaza Shanghai and with the assistance of the helpful staff and management, it was a huge success. We found the staff to be courteous, accommodating and super helpful, before, during and even after the event! That is so refreshing to experience, especially in Shanghai.

Dera Sirs, I have spent more than 10 years 3, 4 times a year and each time several weeks at Crowne Puxi. It is very sad to perceive how the different managements are lowering the quality of this great hotel and this regularly year after year. Only wrong decisions have taken by them.

The crown plaza is a taxi ride away from the city centre although the metro is a short walk away, therefore is is fairly well placed. Check in staff are welcoming and some speak reasonable English. In common with many of this type of hotel in China, the foyer is a vast space of tiled floor and sculpture. Smoking is... More

Stayed here on pre-departure night to be close to the Maglev station nearby. Okay, maybe a little dated, business hotel. I received a free upgrade to the Club level which was nice and saved the breakfast charge. Room was all you need for a one night stand: clean and well appointed. Lounge food/drinks was closed down at 8:00 pm with... More

First off food. Advertise buffet dinner. Had some U.S. clients arrive at 7:30 from USA thought let’s just go to the buffet. It was not available on Wednesday night. So went to Yue Chinese restaurant. Several of the most common pork dishes on the menu were either not available or would take 45 minutes to prepare. Really? This wasn’t gourmet... More

Not a fan. What is a Crowne Plaza really? Is it a nicer Holiday Inn, or a more affordable Intercontinental? It's neither, actually, and Crown Plaza Shanghai, a dated hotel on Shanghai's westside, is a perfect example of this confusing hotel brand. I won't fault the location and the staff is fine. But for the price, especially in a city... More
