Great time at URBN!!!

The hotel is in an excellent area, close to Jing'an metro/subway (5 minute walk), close to major sites in Shanghai, easily reachable by short metro rides. The hotel staff, Claire the GM and her team, were simply outstanding. They helped us navigate around Shanghai, got us reservations for Peking Duck, translated notes for us. They were very personable, hands on and always around the hotel to help. The staff speaks English very well. The F&B Director, Michael, even made us some great old fashions! We had room 26, very comfortable, clean, the bed was excellent. This location is on the back side of the hotel between floors 3/4 and was very quiet. The last night we stayed, the Beergrdn had an event for 300-400 people and you couldn't hear a thing. Wi-Fi was very good in hotel and Beergrdn and was free. If you are looking for a smaller, contemporary place to stay in a good area with great service, this is a great choice. Note-If the subway is not your thing, taxis are readily available outside hotel and they are cheap.
