First, we fully admit that this review is from a biased, coffee-addicted Westerner's point of view.
This 4 Points Sheraton is a good option for Westerners staying in the Zhabei (Northern Industrial) district in Shanghai. First, the very good: the hotel gym is very well-equipped and maintained, with several cardio machines, free weights and Cybex weights, a great view and nice swimming pool. Also very good is the morning breakfast buffet, with foods from around the world. The good: the rooms are average size but clean, with flat screen tvs that have some access to western stations, internet accress (100 RMB per day), decent water pressure and amenities such as razor, toothbrush, nail files, umbrella, robes, etc. The area surrounding the hotel has Westernized stores, restaurants and a shopping mart (RT Mart) and neighborhoods behind the hotel include more localized stores and restaurants (plus a hospital) so you have your pick of places to eat and shop.
The drawbacks: airconditioning is inconsistent. During our first trip to this hotel, the a/c would not work; during this trip it worked fine. Coffee addicts need to bring their own supplies: the only option in the hotel room are terrible instant coffee packs and a hot plate. There are Starbucks nearby, but they do not open until 7:30am and charge around $4 for a small cup of coffee. The hotel would benefit from having a free coffee stand in the lobby. Also, the English skills of the front desk staff seem to vary by shift. We found it more difficult to communicate with the night-shift crew than the morning staff.
