Recently, spent time at the Holiday Inn, Songjiang location. In the past, I kind went away from staying at the Holiday Inn because, I thought they lost their prestige and competitiveness with new arrival hotels bullying the market. I have renewed my faith once again with the Holiday Inn at least this particular hotel. This is not an endorsement of all Holiday Inn franchises just this particular one.
Songjiang is a real nice, quiet, well-kept, outstanding hotel. Check-in was a breeze with very professional friendly staff. You will like the design of this hotel very large rooms with big screen television, with connections for computer and other media devices of your choice. Rooms are nicely decorated when you open your door to your room the lights automatically come on and the curtains automatically open or close depend on whether it's night or day.
The state of the arts electronics in their hotel rooms are amazing. We stayed in a nonsmoking king size bed, premium room for about $114.00 a night. The bath room was spacious with a very nice shower and bath tub plenty of toewls and extras. The hotel features two restaurants one with a buffet, bar, lounge, excercise, fittness, and full service spa, 24 hour in-room dining service and buffet breakfast.
Our room over-look the Walmart shopping mall and restaurants next door. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. I recommend if you visit Shanghai and you want to travel off of the beaten path choose this hotel you want be disappointed. Note: This hotel is located in old-town Shanghai away from downtown more in the suburbs of the city. It takes 30 minutes driving to get downtown about 15-20 Kms. Also this hotel is located 60 kms from the Pudong the International Airport. If you take a taxi to the hotel it will cost about 800 RMB ($120.00 USD). So, be aware and choose your transportation carefully.
There are other Holiday Inns in the downtown area and other hotels that are closer to the airport some good some very bad. Metro or the subway from the airport or buses would be the cheaper transportation to this location. Beaware of the Business section at Pudong Airport when getting Info about transportation because they will try to put you in a very expensive private taxi. Some of the staff at this hotel do not speak English but, most of the managers do. So , you have to be patient with some of the staff when making requests.
