The rooms were... More

My check-in was a bit confusing with the only female behind the counter refusing to take care of me. She kept taking care of Asian men that came in after me standing in line awaiting check-in. Finally a very nice desk clerk assisted me and gave me an absolutely beautiful room....I forgot all about the poor female clerk. Outside of... More

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.
