Stayed at the Courtyard Mariott (tripadvisor please take note of name) for 5 nights last month. Firstly, the hotel is conviniently located in the business district of Xujiahui but may not be most convinient to tourist as most attractions are a cab / train ride away. The Grand Gateway mall is 5 minutes away but unless you want to buy Armani at 5th avenue prices you may want to skip this mall. The main tourist shopping and sightseeeing are atleast 20-30 mins by cab.
The rooms are well appointed and very modern. A very functional study desk, clean beds and high speed broadband (RMB 60/ 1 hr, RMB 120 / 24 hrs). However, the rooms are not sound proof and traffic noise and the constant car horns are a nuisance despite me being on a high floor. My room had the same view as the coffee shop - boring neighbouring buildings.
Breakfast was unimaginative, almost the same dumplings and western fare during my entire stay. I had the lunch buffet once and it had the same boring appearance as the breakfast. I would highly recommend to venture outside (which I thankfully did) as Shanghai as some fantastic culinary offerings.
Overall a very dull hotel.
