“A beautiful indulgence”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

We travelled in a group and found this hotel exceeded our wildest dreams
As the door opened on our room we gasped in delight : everything was of the highest order from the decor to the thoughtful comfort provisions to the electronic control of curtains and bath plug and bathroom television
A secluded toilet was also appreciated in the bathroom as was the marvellous presentation of returned laundry
Service was unobtrusive but ever present making this the best hotel we stayed in China

I recently stayed at this Sheraton in Shanghai. If you are having a conference and want to make sure the people attend this is the place for you. The rooms are nice. The staff is excellent, and there is nothing nearby for people to wonder to. It takes 40 to 60 minutes to get to Shanghai downtown from this Sheraton. There is a Starbucks across the street and one Japenese restaurant outside of eating at the hotel. If you are there for pleasure properly not the right place. However, if you are there for working it is very nice.

This hotel is great, great staff, great restaurant, great rooms, but for now anyway located in a very strange area. Part of the Shanghai Free Trade zone, this hotel is somewhat isolated from the rest of Shanghai. Seems there are many plans for this area, and things are being bulit and constructed, but right now (Oct 2013) my first reaction was where are the people! So time will tell, in 4 or 5 years this may be a very busy area.

The hotel is about 40 minute taxi ride from Downtown, there is a subway line very close. But if your a tourist looking to see the sights of Shanghai this may not be the hotel for you.There do not seem to be any other restaurants (than the ones in the hotel) in the immediate area, but there are some a short taxi ride away, near another major band hotel. There is a Starbuck's right across the street.

But on the good side, the Hotel and its staff are excellent!

Room Tip: Quiet place right now, can get a lot of work done, In the Shanghai Free Trade Zone, not sure if any...

I've been in the hotel several time in the hotel for business purpose. The room is ok, well furnished and everything working. The check in/out: very long time to close the process, to be speeded up. Also the restaurant in the evening offer few international food solutions.

I stayed at the Sheraton Shanghai Waigaiqiao for the first time March 1-8. The hotel itself is very nice and ultra modern. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The entire staff are friendly and attentive. The food and service in the restaurants are very good, and the meeting rooms are well equipped and functional. The hotel's location is not ideal. While convenient to the Free Trade Zone for business, there is really very little within walking distance - and it is a long taxi ride in to Pudong for access to restaurants and shopping. All things considered - I will probably stay here again on a future visit.

Although this hotel is as Waigaoqiao area but its very convenient to the Shanghai Pudong International airport just take 30 minutes drive and also with the No. six metro line station:Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone (North) The hotel lobby's lights are so unique like the lotus. All day dining restaurant called Bay Leaf: set up use the Chinese classic style provide delicious foods taste good. Stay in at the hotell basic room level also have the TOTO bathtub setup with separate shower. Suddenly you will forget busy day and have the good rest. Convenient traffic to hotel with good service,relax yourself at the Sheraton Shanghai Waigaoqiao Hotel.

Room Tip: High Floor room are have the nice view
