So many good things to say about this place. Full disclosure - we have platinum status with Marriott and this is where we stay every time we are in Shanghai (which is often). Close to People's Park and several subway lines. Almost every time we stay we are upgraded to a multi-room (1000 square foot) suite on one of the... More

I research where I stay thoroughly. When we went in March 2016, this was the best value considering: quality and location. There are better places in Shanghai but not for the price of this place. I go to China every other year to visit my wife's family and will be staying here again. Recommend it very highly.

The hotel is centrally located in Downtown Shanghai. Very busy area outside the hotel. The rooms are nice, very comfortable. Spacious bathroom. Upgrade to the Club/Executive lounge, if possible. The Club/Executive lounge food and service is impeccable! Thank goodness for being Marriott Gold! The 3rd floor restaurant is average and the food doesn't change day to day. Many of us... More

There are so many things that I can say positively about this hotel. The restaurant, the spa ( loved!!), lounge, and location was not far from shopping, the Bund, People's Park, and what seemed like the epi-center of Shanghai. With so many choices this would be a hotel I would chose again.

Let me start with saying that the staff of the hotel were extremely friendly. Other than that the hotel was average. I had a club executive room. The executive lounge is nicely located at the 37th floor. However, it is the worst executive club lounge I have ever seen. The cheapest drinks, the cheapest food they can find. The furniture...

I was there for 3 nights and the room, service and breakfast was fantastic. I didn't spent to much time in the room. But it was clean and nice with a good view etc. the breakfast was both Chinese and Western. So you can get whatever you prefer and the personal is very helpful.

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
