Nicely placed close to Hongqiao AP, Metro and Rail

Posted Jul 23, 2014
Pros: Good rooms, good breakfast, good location
Cons: Shuttle bus needs renewing. Dining facilities
Location: Close to travel points, nothing to do close to Hotel
Third time I have stayed here as it is close to AP, metro and Rail. The Hotel is a pleasant place to stay, good rooms and pleasant staff. Excellent Breakfast Buffet. The main restaurant was not up to the standard of the rest of the Hotel. The Shuttle bus is due for an upgrade, and one of the drivers was at times a bit uncooperative.

No wireless internet, dirty accomidation

Posted Jun 6, 2014
Cons: nice lobby
Location: The airport to get out of there was the highlight
Finding a person who spoke English as a mission, no wireless internet in the rooms, dirty room, staying in 13 differant hotels all over China, this was clearly the worst.

Difficult to find

Posted May 18, 2014
Pros: The lobby area was excellent, the service in the lobby bar was also very good
Cons: The maintenance of small items, wallpaper pealing in the rooms etc.
Location: Good location for Hongqiao Airport but not for anywhere else. Also very difficult to get a Taxi
overall very good and would use again, but only if flying in or out of Hongqiao Airport

Business in Shanghai

Posted May 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
I have stayed here previously (2 years ago) and much to my disappointment the hotel has lost it's way somewhat or certainly for foreign business travellers. The most critical element of my business trips are the ability to keep updated and communicate effectively. The need for wifi (preferably free) is always no1 on my agenda as the rooms only need to be ok as they tend to be for single nights and I am awake for most of them anyway which does not help my mood when I cannot get wifi in my room - it is there you just can't get it and if you do you can't keep it! Meals in the lobby bar are very basic fair (avoid the pizza like the plague) this is is tidy hotel and the rooms are good and is great for internal flights and train travel as the added bonus is the shuttle bus so not all bad but they really need to sort the wifi and their ability to communicate in English to resolve issues is limited so 3:30am in the lobby ( where the wifi is perfect) it is then

Lovely hotel

Posted May 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
Lovely hotel, a 15 min taxi ride from hotel, after waiting 30 mins for a taxi it was a relief to get there! Great staff who had no record of my booking but it was not a problem for them. Room really comfortable with separate sitting area but the TV can't be seen from there! Restaurant closed for evening meal but had a wide choice of food from the lobby bar.

Old world charm

Posted Aug 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
Howard Johnson is Old World d├ęcor but with mod cons. Staff were polite and spoke quite good English. Only stayed one night but would stay again at the right price. Has free shuttle to and from the airport Terminal 2, However the airport itself has a free shuttle to and from the terminals 1 & 2. Did not have time to discover much around the Hotel area but did not see any restaurants near the Hotel on the way to the airport, approx. 20mins. Did not have any concerns with the room.

Will not return unless they clean the carpets.

Posted Mar 25, 2013
Pros: Grand lobby.
Cons: Dirty carpets, musty smell in rooms, lack of any restaurants close by except those on property.
Location: Close to airport but that's it.
The carpets in the rooms were both very stained. The rooms were musty smelling. The hotel lobby is very grand and nice. They should re-direct the maintenance money for the lobby to the rooms. The location is close to airport but nothing else. Food options on-site are limited.
