In a city full of luxury hotel chains charging super high prices, Longemont stands out as a hotel that truly delivers good value to its customers.
During my one night stay in January, I got a good deal online and was excited to try this hotel after having browsed through the website. The pictures don't lie. The interiors are well appointed and like most Shanghai hotels, hardware is not an issue. But unlike some hotels, even the software (service) was quite good at this property.
After arriving from Hongqiao Airport, I checked in and was promptly offered my room. The guy standing beside me was not so lucky. He had arrived 2 hours earlier and was waiting for a room even AFTER I got my room key. By the time I headed up to the elevators, he was already writing what seemed to be an angry letter to the GM. Anyway, that's his story to tell.
My room was on the 30th floor and I was greeted with nice views of the Puxi area. The room is spacious and the bathroom was really my favorite part. There was a large tub and a separate shower stall. The bed was also extremely comfortable. I had a great night's sleep. I couldn't figure out whether it was the silky sheets or the alcohol I had consumed that night. Either way, it was good!
The location is ok, but given that it's Shanghai, a lot of other hotels have much better locations. It also depends on what you're in town for.
During my short stay, I tried out the Italian restaurant. They served decent food. My pasta was perfectly al dente and the seasoning was spot on.
Wifi was fast enough for a business traveler. Nothing to complain about there.
Staff were always friendly and ready to help. I wonder if the angry guy next to me at check-in ended up enjoying his stay, but I surely did.
Overall, wonderful rooms with good staff and decent food. There's nothing you can do about the location, but it really wasn't too much of an issue for me.
