The Marriott Puxi is a very very nice hotel. Once again, we didn't know what to expect from Chinese hotels, but this one truly made us feel like we were in a luxury hotel. The rooms were spacious with nice amenities (the window looking into the bathroom is hard to get used to, but pretty typical we found out!) The breakfast buffet was to die for - I am still dreaming about the little pastries we had there! The staff spoke much better English than we were used to, and were extremely helpful in writing down Chinese names for locations when we traveled by taxi. There was also an ATM in the lobby that could do currency exchange, so that was also very helpful (trust me, once you discover the fabric markets, you'll need to take more money out :)) The location is pretty good if you like walking to places. If you are ambitious like we were, you can walk to the Bund, but the Tianzefang and Xiantandi neighborhoods are also not a bad walk. Otherwise, a taxi is very inexpensive to get down into the French Concession neighborhood, the museum, or any other place on your list. We really did not want to leave the Marriott Puxi - was kind of like a home away from home - very clean, very luxurious and very friendly to American travelers.
