Overview

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.

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.

Property 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.

Wonderful experience

Would recommend Sun 18 Oct 2015
Ok I've now stayed at the Grand Central, the Central and HoJo. Roomwise all three are comprable. I liked them all. Somehow HoJo had a slight edge, but just slight! I would stay in all three! The Chinese restaurant on 3rd floor was very good and prices were very reasonable...and if they can control the fnng Chinese smokers, it would be a real five star restaurant! Ate there twice! My travelling business partner was Mr Latte at the Starbucks there! All in all highly recommended even tho the registration process was a little cold and impersonal!

Well located central Shanghai

Would recommend Wed 30 Sep 2015
I spent one night here after a cruise from Vancouver. Very nice Howard Johnson with excellent finishing. Terrific location. Walking distrance to the Bund, Shanghai Museum, Peoples square, maint shopping center.. etc etc. I was on the 12th floor room 1205. Very quient. A/C was slow to cool down, and the check in staff did not explain that you had to hold the card up to the sensor to go up in the elevator. also swipe the card to open your room. I did not use the restaurant as it seemed overprices, but withing 1 block is the large shopping area which has fast food... MdDonalds,Pizza Inn, KFC, as well as local foods. This could be the center location if you spend several days in shanghai. Taxi to the PUDONG Airport about 35 minutes and costs about $40 (214 Yuan).

Only good thing is location

Would not recommend Fri 19 Jun 2015
Only thing good about this hotel is location, location, location: just next to the main shopping street and very convenient but is not worth the big bucks you pay for. Furniture is old style. I had much better expectation for the money I have paid. Definitely not a five star. If they adverstised themselves as 3 or 3.5 stars, I would've given them better rating if the price was also right accordingly.

Great Location

Would recommend Tue 16 Jun 2015
Excellent location, which is located right near the shopping street that leads right up to the bund. Also, it's just a short taxi ride to Yuyan garden to get a dose of some Chinese culture. Next time I'm in Shanghai, if the price is right I will definitely be staying here again. P.S. the breakfast buffet every morning is excellent and the staff are very kind and helpful.
