I stayed at this hotel (Great Wall Wing) for 3 nights in May. The hotel was chosen for it's close proximity to the railway station (2 minutes walk) and highway (run past the hotel) links due to many meetings being planned out of Shanghai.
The rooms are the normal size you would expect from Holiday Inn, with TV, fully fitted bathroom with shower over the bath. We asked for and received queen size beds in our rooms. After a 12 hour working day in temperatures of 25-30 degrees, the beds proved very comfortable.
The staff keep the rooms imaculate each day and are always helpful and curteous.
The Great Wall Wing has a lovely restaurent which serves up breakfast each morning with a choice of fresh fruit, cooked breakfast (Bacon, Eggs, French Toast, Beans) or chinese variety. Whilst we did not sample the main restaurent, the menues and prices looked good with a mixture of chinese and western dishes on offer at very reasonable prices.
There is a small but well equiped gym, 4 lane Brunswick bowling alley, sports bar with plasma tv's, the usual quality gift shops, a gentlemans clothes shop, and a travel agent.
All in all we would highly recommend this hotel if you are using this as your base. Shopping areas are spread all over Shanghai so walking to most of them is not an option, however with the average taxi fare for upto 3 people being just £1.00 it really is not an issue.
