Good for business, but no barPosted Mar 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
Room was very comfortable, but walls are paper thin. I cold hear my neighbors upstairs when the shower ran, or they opened the curtains. The lack of a bar on the ground floor meant nothing central. The staff were amazing for all requests. Internet access, like all of China, was about 1MB/s. I went to the Renaissance next door and logged on to the free wifi at their bar for a 3MB connection.Taxis are cheap in China and easy to get anywhere in. Gym with swimming pool had three treadmills, weights and free weights.

Beware: a reservation only opens the negotiationPosted Jul 16, 2012 on Hotels.com
Arriving jet-lagged after 20 hours of travel, the front desk clerk "offered" me a deal on internet access and breakfast. Total tally in USD was over 50USD/day. Can't help but feel I was taken by not being on guard about opportunistic economic climate in China, should have remembered but was taken by Western hotel brand assuming rate was non-negotiable. Also, air condition in summer heat of 104F unable to coop. Sweating inside the hotel as soon as put shirt on in the morning.

Good Hotel.Posted Jun 25, 2012
Pros: The hotel was clean and efficient.
Cons: Television in the room was fixed to the wall and could not be moved for a preferred viewing angle.
Location: It is close to the main roads to Pudong International Airport, thus easy to get to.
A well-run hotel with good customer service. A little expensive by China standards, but not ruinous. Arguably more suited to business travelers, as it is a few miles from the main touristy parts of the city -- but they can be reached by a roughly £5 taxi if needed.

Excellent value for moneyPosted Feb 13, 2012
Excellent top quality, relatively new hotel in a great area. It's not downtown Shanghai, but in the Pudong "new area" that features more modern and spacious (and quieter) surroundings compared to the middle of the city. Approximately 30 minutes or so taxi ride to downtown or to PuDong airport. Within 10 minutes walk of a nice center featuring several western and asian restaurants, fast food, bakeries, a shopping center, and more. As the hotel is not competing with those in the heart of the city, the price seemed very reasonable and the accommodations and size of the room were excellent.

There are better...Posted Aug 25, 2010 on Hotels.com
China is full of so-called "5-star" hotels that all have similar accouterments- the sleek furniture, granite counters, glass showers, lux spas etc- Crown Plaza did all that but not as well as Hyatt or even the high-end Marriott. Lots of mirrors were used to make things look bigger and grander but the substance seemed lacking. Honestly, it was fine- the "Club" service was nice and the staff was decent (if harried) but for the price I would choose another next time. Location is good for business travelers but pretty bland for tourists. There is a metro stop nearby but it's a long walk.

it's ok for family travelPosted Jul 28, 2009
Overall, very clean and service is good. The biggest issue is the inadequate a/c in the room. We were there in July admist of a heat wave, the room just wasn't cool enough, no matter how you adjusted the thermostat.
