Pick your hotel in Shanghai by where you need to be: the city is gigantic. I stayed here because my son is going to East China Normal University on the far western part of the main city center. (The school is one metro stop away from this hotel). The hotel is directly above the huge and modern Cloud Nine Shopping Mall which has a metro stop in the basement (Zhongshan Park Station) so it is about a 20 minutes metro ride to People's Square and maybe 3 stops from the French Concession. If you change lines you can get to Xintiandi in about 20 minutes too. The hotel is right at the inside limit of the first ring road. It is a few stops from Hongqiao Airport and Railroad Station. The hotel is very modern, completely 5 star Marriott Renaissance standards. I got an upgrade to the Concierge Floor and the views were UNBELIEVABLE. I could see the Pearl TV tower and the Trade Center from my room. I ate breakfast in the concierge lounge(I think it's worth it to pay for that. It's full of western business people , airline pilots and has very helpful concierge/check in people who speak English). For dinner, I didn't eat in the hotel; I went to the mall which had a huge number of restaurants. The service was excellent. I was happily surprised with this hotel. My taxi ride to Pudong took about 55 minutes and cost 130 rmb. Next time, I may take the Maglev to Longyang Road station, and then I could take line 2 all the way to this hotel(that would only be if you have carryon bags which aren't heavy)( I think that would take 1-1/2 hrs).
