“A good choice in Shanghai”
Reviewed December 25, 2011

I stayed at Sheraton Residences for three and a half weeks this December, got back home a couple days ago. This is my third visit to Shanghai, a first for more than a week.

There are really three hotels on the same property - Sheraton, Sheraton Residences and Four Points by Sheraton. The first two share a lobby, the third one is about fifty feet away.

Residences are different from the regular Sheraton in a few ways. The room is nicer - it is actually two rooms, with a kitchenette and a washing machine. The cleaning service is every other day instead of every day. The price my company paid was pretty low by Shanghai standards for hotels of that type. Not sure how much of that was a company-specific discount.

The breakfast service is excellent, plenty of choices from European to Japanese. The two restaurants, China Court and The Feast, are very good, if a bit expensive. The service was next to flawless overall. The staff does speak fairly decent English. The gym is the usual Sheraton style. There's a pool, a few treadmills, an elliptical, a stepper, some weight machines. I would say they could add a machine or two - a few times the gym got crowded, and this was off-season.

There are a couple of cash machines in the lobby. One is by HSBC, a major bank with links to Bank of America, so if you have a BofA account, you can withdraw money without paying banking fees. My bank charged $5.

Taxi to downtown is 20 to 30 Rmb. There's a subway station in front of the hotel. Shanghai subway is pretty nice, as long as you avoid the rush hour.

The building next to Sheraton Residences tower is a shopping mall. The shops are nothing to write home about - mostly Western brands at Western prices - but there are a few decent cheap restaurants in the basement, and a mini-market where you can get essentials.

I got a tour guide via the TripAdvisor, and I can't recommend the guide service highly enough, it is everything a guide service should be. Search for Ms. CuteMinMin, she has many posts on China-related fora. The guide was excellent - took me around Shanghai, to one of the water villages and to Suzhou (subject to a separate review).

Not-so-good parts..

The Four Points part is a bit of a letdown. The restaurant on the top floor, something-or-other-on-29, just plain sucks. The view is nice, the food is substandard. The sports bar isn't too bad when you can find the bar tender, but nothing exceptional. By and large, the Four Points isn't worth the 50 feet walk.

No wireless in the room. The room did have wired Internet, and I ended up setting my own wireless there. Downstairs has wireless, but it's slow and feeble.This being China, Youtube, Picasa, etc. are blocked.

The laundry service is fairly expensive.

Overall, a very nice experience.

Room Tip: Try to stay within the first ten floors. The elevator is kind of slow.

I recently stayed at this hotel for 3 nights .the hotel as the title suggests very good in all respects and well situated but cabs are fairly cheap anyway so getting from point to point is easy and reasonable.Having said that we still used the subway system just to give it a try and that was also very good if not very crowded at most times.Shopping in shanghai is superb with many many shops doing copy items if you're inclined you can have a field day.with only 3 days we diddnt do much sightseeing but down by the yangtse in the centre of town is very impressive..Be sure to take the meglev train from the airport and then a cab to your hotel the train reaches a speed of 420+kl per hr and takes about 8 minutes from airport to the city station.Yuan gardens is a good place to visit with pleanty of cheap gifts on sale and many places to eat.I went with 4 lads (buddies) but I liked it so much I'm headed back in february with my grandaughter.

Room Tip: I was very happy with my room and it's not as though the hotel is on a beach so the views are al...

I stayed w/my daughter in the Residences tower for a week and was very happy w/the facilities, location, fab breakfast buffet, and attentive service. Concierge staff was always responsive; suggested half- and whole-day tours were very good w/knowledgeable Guides; housekeeping, very accommodating (language barrier was no barrier). With a subway station across the street, getting to and from the hotel was a breeze. Enjoyed the beautiful pool and the well-equipped exercise room. High-rise shopping center next door also includes a great dumpling joint on the lower level, and several nice restaurant options.

Room Tip: Enjoyed being on the 21st floor on the 'bridge side' - wonderful exp. when all lit up. And g...

I had a great night sleep, clean and comfortable. We were on the 26th floor - good views of part of the city. We had dinner one of the nights in the restaurant - delicious meal, service good. Very convenient to the train station. Lovely big bathroom - with nice touches. Would I stay here again... absolutely!!

This was a very clean property, located in a less convenient location in Pudong but immediately adjacent to the Tangqiao station on Line 4. Mattresses very comfortable. Since I was there for a meeting at the Shanghai Expo, it was a good business hotel. Ask about the upgrade to Club access at check in. Decent breakfast offered, heavy hors d'oeuvres and drinks in the late afternoon and conference room available for meetings. All in all a good experience but it depends on the objective for your visit
