“5 Star for 4 Star prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

I had the opportunity to stay in the new wing room 824. Very spacious, nicely decorated and a beautiful bathroom with down poor rain shower. What a treat. I love coming here. The breakfast is excellent, western, eastern, Japanese, it's all there. I found the staff also very courteous, from the front desk, maid to the bar and the breakfast area. There is also a live pianist in the lobby playing nice music.

We stayed for three nights at the hotel and couldn't fault the service in the rooms or the breakfast which was always efficient and good value. However the hotel lacks atmosphere and is every much a tourist/ business bed hotel rather than an experience. So if that is what you are looking for then great but if you want something special for family I would look elsewhere.

Crowne Plaza hotels are usually very solid hotels of 4 to 5 stars and consistently a safe choice for traveling in Asia. This Crowne Plaza, which is near Antai Business School (of Shanghai Jiaotong University) is in a fairly convenient location near the old French Quarter of Shanghai. The lobby is big and comfortable, the room I had was very nice with a good and reasonably soft bed (unusual for China where most hotel beds are very hard and uncomfortable). The bed was a little low off the ground; I wish they would learn from Marriott's comfortable bedding (high beds, soft, very good pillows and blankets). But generally, the room was very nice. My room had a particular problem in that when the doorbell rang, the power shut off in the room (much like taking the key card out of the slot). But I imagine that was a one-off problem for my room only. Overall, a very nice hotel - clean, comfortable, and a good and polite staff.

A little disappointed, after reading the reviews I expected more. Room at first glance looked ok but on closer inspection the carpets were stained and tatty. Bathroom tiles were cracked and grouting dirty. We found the breakfast limited and areas to just sit and have a drink too crowded do to limited seating. There is a bar (charlie bar) which does not open until 5pm the staff in there were very friendly and gave good advise as to some of the best places to visit in the limited time we had.

Unusual to find a car in the centre of the lobby but otherwise all one would expect from a Crowne Plaza hotel. The staff were friendly,welcoming and very helpful. We were allowed to check in really early although sadly in our first room it took a very long time to get any hot water. Our second room was better and the bathroom included the luxury(?) of an electrically heated toilet seat. The room itself was comfortable and clean and of reasonable size although the view was interesting rather than attractive. Breakfast was good with a wide choice of dishes and a light evening meal was also fine.

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our month touring around China. It is a very comfortable, modern hotel and our room was clean, comfortable with all amenities. The reception staff were very helpful and pleasant.
Breakfast was OK, although there was not a great selection of fruit and the cereal was a bit limited. There was some wholemeal bread which was tasty.The evening buffet was good on the first night but not so good on the last night of our stay. We wanted to eat in the Chinese restaurant but were told there was no room because there was a wedding going on.
The hotel is placed in a residential area of Shanghai which is OK and there is a Metro line nearby to get into the centre of Shanghai.

This was a first class hotel that many movie stars stay in. It is in a reasonable location in Shanghai and the bedrooms are very well equipped. The bathroom has a electric toilet included, shower and bath. The beds are large and there is also a large TV, desk and chair. The breakfast was of buffet style and accommodated Chinese, European and American tastes. We had a meal in the restaurant one night and the food was only tepid and although it was well presented it was not really worth the money. The cost of wine is very expensive the cheapest being approximately £25 a bottle.
