I have stayed at the Hongta hotel three times, once back when it was a St Regis hotel and twice since the name change to the Hongta. Our latest trip was for 6 nights. It is still a fantastic hotel! 5 star all the way! Pay the extra to get a suite and enjoy the benefits of a lovely included breakfast on the top floor with complimentry drinks and nipples at happy hour. A huge thank you to Ki Ki again for excellent service during our whole stay. She tries to go the extra mile everytime. Great location in Pudong district with lots of shops nearby only about 15 minutes or about (US$5) in a taxi to the New Shanghai Exhibition centre.
