“All a business traveler could want.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Everything about my stay was just great, everyone on staff was friendly and professional at all times.
My room had a view of Century Park which was wonderful and great to see all the activity from early morning and late evening. The bed was very comfortable and the bath was spacious with a tub and a double head shower.
Breakfast had an excellent layout and everything tasted good.
Housekeeping was very through and never disruptive, used the laundry service and everything was returned by evening crisp and clean.
Hotel is located at Century Park Metro Station Line 2 Exit 4 you do not even get wet during a rain storm getting from the Metro to the hotel. It makes getting around the city fast and economical.
A convince store is just outside the metro entrance which was good for water and snacks.

Good beds, very nice and clean bathroom, good small lobby, service is fine. Location across a park and one block away from a shopping area. We will stay here more in stead of parkview hotel. I appreciate the lighting design in the room

Location is fantastic. Take maglev to long yang station, then subway line 2 , 1 stop to century park. Exit 4 and the escalator leads you to the rear entrance of the hotel.

Breakfast spread is gorgeous. Varities of local and western dishes. Fruits are abundant. Service at the restaurant is excellent.

Staffs are friendly and efficient. Rooms spacious and they are cleaned promtly daily. Cabs are easy to get from the hotel.

Local supermarket is just across the road from the rear entrance.

We went to the Dorsett Shanghai during a 24 hour stopover between flights. It was perfect for our needs. They let us check in when we arrived, around 9 am. They let us have breakfast on arrival, as we would leave too early the following day. The room was nice (once we figured out how to work the curtain in the bathroom), there was complimentary bottled water, and the wifi worked. The TV had a few English channels.
As most reviewers have noted, the location right at the Metro door is perfect if you want to use public transport.
For us, the best part was the breakfast buffet, which was plentyful, varied, filling, and tasty. We even had room service for dinner, and we enjoyed that as well. We would definitely return if we are ever in Shanghai again.

The Dorsett's biggest attraction is the fact that you can get to and from it very easily. You can take the Metro from Pudong airport (line 2) and walk straight upstairs at the Century Park station to the side door of the hotel. Line 2 will also take you 10 minutes walk from the Bund (East Nanjing station). And if you are visiting the new Expo Centre fir a trade fair the hotel has a shuttle bus in the morning and it's a few stops down the line on the Metro back at night.
Rooms are OK but nothing special, wifi works, bar and restaurant are up to a standard but lack atmosphere. Staff very friendly and all do their job well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking Century Park

Our all day dining restaurant "Gusto on the Green" is overlooking the breathtaking view of Century Park, take delight in the fused flavours of east and west amidst the causal, yet elegant, surrounds of this distinctive cafe; guest enjoy the restaurant's peace and quiet, this is an ideal place for business association and/or friends gathering.
Chic and sassy, Fengshui Bar is a rendezvous of the "old and new", highlightes an antique Chinese opium bed-style seating and a bar built with multi-coloured glass that gives off a sensational spray of vibrant hues against a romantic atmosphere.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Dorsett Shanghai.

I have been there for six days and i'll recomend it, it is just one metro station(the metro station is just besides the hotel) from the maglev, it has a supermarket in front of the door and if you walk around you will find a lot of good local restaurants, massages house and a very nice neighborhood.
Some people complain here about the breakfast but i dont agree with them, you have vegetables, bacon and eggs, chinese dumplings, tufo soup, misu soup, potatoes, a lot of fruits, cereals, what else do you need?

Stayed six nites at this hotel. Good location. Close to park, subway station and supermarket
but very bad breakfast. Do not pay extra for room with breakfast. There is a good cafe shop next door with cheaper and better food and great coffee. Very bad restaurant services.
The room is clean. Comfortable bed and pillow but bathroom sink has mold. This is not a five star hotel, more or less like 3 and half star.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for staying at Dorsett Shanghai!
The hotel is opposite Century Park; metro line 2 Century Park Station exit 4 is adjacent to hotel rear entrance, supermarket and 24 hours convenience store is across the street from hotel rear entrance, as well as Ichido Bakery is located by hotel rear entrance area.
Please allow us to give you feedbacks on your comments made:
With the ongoing hotel rebranding promotion, we offer guest super value price - best available rate and Dorsett Package rate are including free Wifi and complimentary buffet breakfast in our all day dining restaurant "Gusto on the Green", the breakfast provides over 50 different kinds of warm and cold food/pastries/cheese/salads/egg station/fruit/drink in Chinese and western style cooking; restaurant is very propular and busy during rush hours but our customer promise is no guest needs to wait in line for table, timely food replenishment and coffe/tea service when guest is seated.
The bathroom sink is glass-built, our houskeeper is very concern on room cleanliness and high standard of room clean has been set in place.
We will continue to delivery customer promise of 5-star service and super value pricing to our loyalty customers.
We look forward to welcome you back to Dorsett Shanghai!
