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.

Highlights
  • Prime location in the heart of Nanjing Road Pedestrian Mall
  • Five-minute walk to the Bund or People's Square

Only good thing is location

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

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.

Best location for tourists!

This hotel exceeded our expectations. It is a block away from the pedestrian mall and a short walk to the Bund. We were upgraded to an even nicer room than we booked! The concierge, Oliver, was super helpful. His English was excellent, which made it even easier for us to learn about this local area. The only complaint we had was that the room was quite warm because of the heat setting that is 'universal' (or something like that), but they provided us with in room air conditioners and that remedied the situation.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are crossing the road on a green "walk" sign - watch out! The cars will keep coming and the motorcycles are electric so you don't hear them. Riding in a taxi around here is a bit unnerving. No seatbelts in the backseat (as yet - on 3 different rides) and they have a different set of rules for driving than we are used to in the U.S.! At any rate, despite the driving patterns that you'll experience in the taxi or while walking, we have yet to see any (or be in any) car accidents!

Good Location

The hotel is in a good location in the downtown area of Shanghai. Only a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Bund and easy access to the Shanghai Metro station. Clean rooms and a decent gym. I thought it was a good value for Shanghai.
