“Excellent Hotel by Marriot”
Reviewed May 24, 2010

I was in PVG for 2 days for work and stayed at the Courtyard Marriot along DongFang Rd, its owned by Marriot Gp and nearby Metro station (Line 2) is Century Avenue station, around 40mins by taxi from Pudong Int'l Airport (approx CNY$160-180 taxi fare)

Courtyard Marriot is rated as a 4 star hotel but in my view, it was almost 5 star, checked in early due to an early landing, had to pay half day extra room charge (which was fair) but hotel was kind enough to throw in 24hrs free internet (worth CNY$80) and also upgrade my room from an initial Deluxe to a Premier FOC

Room was clean and spacious, breakfast was average, but their staff command of English was very good, thus good for non-chinese speaking travellers.

At the end of my stay, I was also given a Marriot Rewards card for future stays, it was a simple and nice gesture.

Modern High Rise Hotel unlike suburban layout as in the Americas. Excellent amenities and service level. Upgrade your Room to Executive Level to enjoy access to club lounge, internet access, laundry benefits, complimentary break-fast etc. Stayed for 5 nights and would recommend to all

Came back to the hotel and the smell from the construction was gone in the rooms. We had a much better stay in the hotel. We were so glad because the service at the hotel from the front desk and the concierge is excellent. They helped us with our visit in Shanghai and beyond. Their English is very good. The rooms are comforatble and clean. We really liked the convenience of the metro nearby, the restaraunts and the shopping mall. A really great place to stay.

its right in the middle of the financial district - near to all sightseeing.

Be careful of the taxi drivers in Shanghai they will rip you off - never take a taxi where the driver approaches you at airport or train - always go to the rank - and request the price

150 RMB from airport to town , travelling in shanghai 20 - 30 mins ride should be ~ 40 RMB

First, let me highlight the positives. Like many others have mentioned, the staff at this Courtyard is excellent. Very attentive, accommodating, friendly, and are strong with English. Also, the hotel is clean, and the beds are reasonably comfortable. It's near 3 subway lines (Century Avenue station), so access is easy.

My only real nit about the particular room was that the window seals weren't great so traffic noise was audible. I was upgraded to an "Executive Room" which from the pictures doesn't appear any different from a Premier room. Also, there's not much happening nearby the hotel - went wandering around on a Thursday night; this area of Pudong is right on the border of the financial district and residential neighborhoods, so there's just not much going on if you want to walk somewhere for entertainment.

My bigger complaint is about Courtyards in general: their inconsistency and dwindling value. Unless the hotel is brand new, Courtyards are looking and feeling dated, especially with such comparable brands as Hampton Inn and HI Express stepping up their game regarding decor, bedding, and amenities. Courtyards demonstrate little to no amenity benefit over these 3/3.5 star peers, and Marriott still charges for breakfast and internet. This has frustrated me with Courtyards in the States, and the one here is no different. Furthermore, the price of the Courtyard here was within spitting distance of the much better-appointed, more spacious, and more comfortable 4-star Hilton.

In short, the Courtyard Pudong is a reasonable, clean, comfortable stay in Pudong if you can get a good price on it. Otherwise, spring a few more bucks for some nicer digs and a better location.

My stay at the courtyard mariott was one of the highlights of my stay in Shanghai. I stayed for 4 nights and did not have a single complaint at the end of the stay. The staff speak good English, which is a rarity in China. So communication was not a problem at all. They are fast to respond and helpful.
The room s are spacious and clean, with very comfortable beds! You sleep like a baby.

Good facilities in room for one's comfort.

In all I would love to come back here someday.

Stay one night this month (January) and overall a very good experience. The attitude of the staff is excellent in all areas, from check in/out staff, bell boy and in the restaurant.

The room looks very good and clean and everything works well.

Opposite the hotel is a small shopping center (96 Plaza), but if you walk 15 minutes from the Hotel you will reach an intersection with big malls, Next Age and Times Square. You also will find around many Family Mart shops where you can buy drinks and snacks at reasonable price if you want to save some cost with the Hotel mini bar.

Breakfast was good and with enough selection. As long as prices are kept competitive, this is a good option to stay in Pudong.

To get to the Hotel from Pudong airport, it may be worth to consider taking the Maglev train (80 RMB round trip) and then a taxi, around 23-27 RMB per trip. The Maglew will run at 430 kms for a while, so it is a very good experience to try as well.
