Five-star hotel near prime Shanghai shopping and sightseeing

The Howard Johnson brand has gone upscale in China compared to its American roots. This modern 27-story hotel earned a five-star rating when it opened in 2003. However, this hotel is a modest entry in Shanghai's crowded five-star category. The hotel flanks the pedestrian mall portion of Nanjing Road, which has long been called China's number one shopping street. A five-minute walk east leads guest to the Bund, while a five-minute walk west takes guests to People's Square.

Highlights
  • Prime location in the heart of Nanjing Road Pedestrian Mall
  • Five-minute walk to the Bund or People's Square
  • Two restaurants and a wine bar
  • Free parking, a rarity in Shanghai
Rooms

The 360 ample rooms -- 127 of them suites -- in this 27-story building have a marble bathroom, safe, mini-bar, large writing table, flat-screen television, and free high-speed Internet. The combination of patterns and colors in the rooms are striking, with dark redwood furniture, yellow-and-white Mondrian grid fabric on a chair, brown block-pattern carpet, and bronze jacquard linens.

Features

The hotel's prime location along Nanjing Road pedestrian mall is its top selling point. Guests can reach two of Shanghai's top tourist destinations -- the Bund and People's Square -- within a five-minute walk. Countless restaurants and shops lie within blocks of the hotel. If guests choose to dine in, they can sip a drink at the lobby wine bar or choose from Chinese or Western fare at the two restaurants on site. The spa includes a sauna and steam bath, indoor pool, and hot tub. Parking is free for hotel guests -- a rarity in Shanghai.

Good hotel

Hotel is in a good location near the People's Square and three subway lines. Service was good, except the lobby bar was slow and overpriced--use your minibar if you want a beer, it's half the price. It's walking distance to the Planning Museum, art museum, and a 20 minute walk to the Bund. Breakfast buffet was extensive, with both Chinese and Western offerings.

Avoid at ALL COST

Shangai is full of scammers. This hotel is part of the massage scam deal often seen around Shangai. The concierge or door men alert massage woman of your arrival and you will be hounded non stop. We managed to get robbed thanks to this hotel, we lost over $2000. A frightening horrible experience. They do not like 'us, guests' here. I would absolutely never visit this hotel again. I recommend you consider something more mainstream. The Howard Johnson is a franchise and is not USA owned/run.

Just plain nice

This hotel is one of my favorite hotels in Shanghai. It is convenient to everything in the downtown area - the Bund, Nanjing Road, Peoples Square,Yu Garden. Great for walking to almost any destination. The lobby and restaurants are not as grand as the newer hotels in the area. but the facilities are clean and the staff is excellent. I have stayed here several times, and will do so again.

Excellent hotel

BIg rooms, very modern, clean...all first rate. Good price, very close to the pedestrian mall on Nanking rd. The taxi's know where the hotel is. The hotel staff is responsive. Off Nanking rd is a street with small cheap restaurants that was very good. For the price this place is an outstanding value.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Always use the Metro. Taxis take too long and are too expensive.
