Great Location for Conferences at Shanghai INTEX
Posted Sep 7, 2013
I recently attended a 3 day conference at the Shanghai INTEX - which was only a 5 minute walk away. There are many nice restaurants in the area of the hotel that offer different Oriental cuisines (Cantonese, Szechuan, Hunan, Japanese, Korean).
Taxi from airport to hotel cost around $30. The hotel has a nice lobby bar, though expensive - a single highball cost over $20 - and a can of soda was $5. You can buy water, soda and beer at nearby convenience stores for about 10% of what the hotel charges.
I dined at two of the hotel's restaurants - Dynasty (Chinese) and Raphael's (Steakhouse). Both meals were delicious - and I really enjoyed the Crab Avocado appetizer at Raphael's. A tip of the hat to Executive Chef (Heinz) for a job well done. This hotel is a well-run and well-managed facility. I had the opportunity to meet with the hotel's GM - who was sincerely interested in my feedback. I will stay at this hotel again.
