Receptionists are simply the best, helpful with efficient check in and out. Nice breakfast love the Asian corner a lot, comfortable bed makes us sleep well. As its just next to the ancient garden street and 15 ,minutes walk to the bund, I would recommend this hotel by its convenience. My elder daughter is coming near year and will definitely choose this hotel.

The hotel and the people is nice. The view from the room is great. Nice location where the train station is nearby and the Hotel is next to the Yu Garden - convenient for shopping and sight seeing.

This is a very good hotel. It's lobby with 3 story ceiling and a huge wall of glass looking towards the city was a very good entry to this hotel. Rooms were very modern, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was extremely good and lush. The gym was on the 21st floor and you had to walk up 1 more floor to the infinity pool on the 22nd fl. Very neat to swim and still see the city while swimming thru the 2 sides of glass in the pool. There was a nightclub on the 23rd floor.The staff was very helpful and even persistent to help to get a taxi a few times when finding one was hard.

Room Tip: Seems any side would have a great view especially the north side looking at downtown.

This is a great hotel near transportation, the Yu Garden, shopping, banks, etc. The entrance area is quite cramped as vehicles maneuver for space to load/unload passenger. But, once inside and you reach the lobby on the 2nd floor, it's quite spacious. There's a very nice bar at the far end of the lobby with live, quiet music on at least some evenings.

The guest rooms are average size but very comfortable with excellent lighting. The staff are very friendly and many speak excellent English.

We would stay here again.

I have stayed at this hotel many times during business trips. It is one of my favorite hotels in Shanghai for a number of reasons:

The location is great . It is walking distance from the Yu Garden, and the tourist market next to the Yu Garden where you can buy a lot of nice souvenirs (remember bargaining is mandatory in China!). The Shanghai Metro is right across the street, wonderful mode of transportation to get around Shanghai fast and cheap, $0.50-$1.0 for most rides!! And you are very close to the Bund, Xintiendi, East Nanjing walking street, etc.

The rooms are very nice and modern. Nice big lobby with a bar on the 2nd floor. The entrance is somewhat small and gets a little crowded with incoming taxis/cars, but not a big problem. The staff are extremely friendly and see to you as soon as you come out of the car.

One of my favorite features of this hotel is the preferred guests' lounge (concierge lounge), where you can enjoy breakfast, nightly hot plates, and drinks while enjoying the amazing views of the Bund (especially at night when the buildings are lit up).

Also, the infinity swimming pool overlooking the city skyline has an amazing view, not a very big pool, but very enjoyable.

The rates at this hotel are extremely reasonable for Shanghai, where you can pay a lot more and get nothing close to the benefits of this hotel. I highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in Shanghai.

Room Tip: There have been some reviews with complaints about some of the rooms. However, I am a Marriott pref...

I stayed at this Hotel and booked also the exectuive floor. It was an excellent choice, the rooms are spacious with a nice and big bathroom and very comfortable beds. Metro station is directly in front of the house and on the backside there is Yu Garden for a nice walk and an authentic market. It is also possible to walk to the Bund within 10-15 Minutes. The executive lounge was very comfortable, good view of the skyline, nice fingerfood and drinks offered. Pool on the top floor had a breathtaking view to the skyline. All in all I had an excellent stay and will definitely return.

Room Tip: Suggest to book executive floor.

Being close on metro line 10 and in walking distance of the Bund and the commodity markets is a perfect location if you want to see many different aspects of Shanghai.
Breakfast was great, with many choises available.
The rooms are not very big, but really comfortable and clean.
We would certainly stay here again.
