This is our third stay in Courtyard Puxi. They do treat the Marriott Elite members well, twice we were upgraded to suites and once to club level room.
But really I like this hotel for it's perfect balance of room, available services, location and price.
The rooms are contemporary with enough storage space and mirrors. As a frequent traveller, I really appreciate the full size safe (that fits a laptop or DSLR camera), numerous hangers for coat, jackets, pants for two and ample bench space in the bathroom.
The location is near the Shanghai Railway station and about 5 mins walk from the nearest subway station (Hanzhong Lu station on Line 1). If you prefer taxi, taxis are plenty and it's a short drive onto the elevated roads which fast tracks you to your destination around Shanghai. This is very important as you don't want to be stuck in traffic, which you can easily do if you pick the wrong hotel.
Since our last visit, they have massage/spa service which may appeal to some travellers. The in-room dining menu is 24 hours but choices are limited. I think this is an improvement area as the items we ordered (club sandwich and wonton soup) were either lacked flavor or not at the right temperature.
The breakfast selection was good, with enough western and Japanese choices, however the presentation is very average.
With all the positives and negatives combined, I still think it represents good value as it is consistently one of the cheapest Marriott group hotels in Shanghai. For experienced and mid-range travellers like myself, I have yet to find a better alternative in Shanghai.
