Enjoyed my 1 week stay at this hotel. Very conveniently located with the metro just around the corner. Easily accessible from the hotel to the city or even to Puxi.
Excellent staff! Ever ready to assist you and always very friendly.

We ended up staying here as the Kerry Pudong was overbooked. In terms of location, it is about 5 min drive from the Shanghai Exhibition centre and is right on the doorstep of the Century Park metro. Century Park is right opposite too. The room was ok - quite large, but there were some stains on the carpet. The breakfast was ok, but the floor bit sticky. Perhaps it was because I stayed at the Kerry the night before that I felt the difference, but overall good location and ok for mid-range hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms with a park view really do have quite a nice view

I have worked and had holidays in China for the last 15 years and stayed in many hotels there. I cannot praise this hotel enough. My stay here has been a total pleasure. The staff were all extremely helpful, friendly, English speaking, polite, eager to please and most professional. The room was very clean and of a good size, well decorated, bright, well equipped, and with free WiFi. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of foods. The Metro was next door to the Hotel which allows easy access to the whole of Shanghai and all the tourist attractions. The views from my room overlooking Century Park were breathtaking.
This is the best business hotel in which I have stayed in China, by far. I was made so welcome and I would without question stay at the Dorsett again.
JDJones.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view overlooking Century Park.

Opted to stay at the Dorsett for my 24-hour layover in Shanghai because of the great advance purchase rate and its proximity to central Pudong and the Mag-Lev train to Pudong International Airport.

I requested a quiet room and was given an excellent corner room on an upper floor with a wrap-around balcony... there were great views in each direction. The room and bathroom were quite spacious and well-appointed, with a large bed, nice shower and bathtub, and even a speaker device to hook up to my iPod.

The hotel is located directly across the street from Century Park, which is a lovely place for a stroll on a nice day, and a short metro ride from the Mag-Lev terminus and not too far from most of the attractions in Pudong and across the river.

The breakfast buffet was pretty good! The service was efficient if not especially memorable, but that was fine since the room was amazing for the price I paid.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony!

The beauty of this hotel is its close proximity to the new shanghai exhibition / expo center. Its about a 1 - 1.5 km walk to the expo. Shops, Kerry Parkside mall, etc are all just in very short walking distance. There are quite a few restauarants on the street behind the hotel. The underground train runs right under this hotel. You can take Line 2 to city center (People's Square) which is 6 stops away or you can alight a stop earlier at East Nanjing Road and walk to People's Square from there. Hotel staff is very nice, helpful and courteous. The property is well mantained and is very clean.

Room Tip: Take the parkside view room facing Century Park

Best: nice park views, huge rooms, big and comfortable bed, nice amenities in the bathroom, nice decoration, big choice for breakfast, just next to an underground station for line 2, which is the one that brings you to both city airports and main tourist attractions, free shuttle bus to the exhibition place and other business centers.
Worse: WIFI does not work perfect in the room sometimes, specially in the evenings when everybody is online.
TIPS: if you like running, you can do it around the park, it is just 5 kms. Be careful if you go to the airport, you have to change subway in a specific stop (you can see it when you are inside).

Room Tip: Try to get a high floor with park view. I do not know how the city view looks like...

If you are coming from the west this is a great spot to stay. The staff are attentive, the rooms are nice and you are in walking distance of EXPO. Great breakfast. I stayed in a loft suite but think I rather be on a higher floor. If you are shy the bathroom set up is not for you. No privacy with the glass walls. The bar and restaurants were very good, so if you are not adventurist the hotel meets all of your needs. Nice bonus, Century Park across the street, Metro (Subway) across the street, convenience store attached to hotel and grocery store down the street. I used a mix of subway and taxi to get around to the tourist areas. Be aware of the "Pretend" taxies, negotiate rate before you get in. Usually nicer than most taxies. Shanghai downtown about twenty minutes away by Metro.

Room Tip: Ask to be on Century Park side
