We recently were on a 20 day tour of China and so had quite a few different hotels. This was our first and last stop and found it to be quite comfortable with three different types of restaurants. This is a big deal when you have eaten Chinese food (somewhat westernized) for 26 meals in a row...lunch and dinner every...

This hotel is out of town in quiet area, so if relaxation is your goal then it's the right place to be. The front desk staff were very friendly and helped with organizing taxis and recommending places to eat away from the hotel, there is shopping mall (small) approx 3km away so a good place to visit for alternate food...

For starters, it is a long ways from the center city. So if it is your plan to see sights downtown, you will have a long commute regardless of mode of transportation. That is also the case for airports. The room was spacious and clean, but wall covering by the desk was significantly banged up and the desktop had been...

Dear Guest, First and foremost, please accept our profuse apologies for the less than prefect service experience. I am truly thankful to you in affording us the opportunity to apologize to you in person. We certainly take this case seriously and we have thoroughly investigated with the staff concerned.

The rooms were very nice and clean. The breakfast buffet was large with lots of variety. They have a shuttle to the subway. Their driver wouldn't take a tip. You have to change lines a couple of times to get into downtown. They only exchanged $100 Canadian per guest.

Staff very friendly. Rooms large and clean. Found lobby area very cold, they don't seem to put the heat on in this area. Hotel is located away from downtown core and next to a private golf course. You would need a taxi to get around.

Nice Hotel, rooms very comfortable but could use some updating. The hotel is at least an hour from the attractions of Shanghai. Setting is very pretty on a golf course. The staff were helpful. Wifi is available for a charge unless in the public areas.

If you aren't going for the golf stay clear of this soulless mausoleum of a hotel. We thought we would be staying in the centre of Shanghai but at the last minute we were told we would be staying in this dump which is in the Shanghai equivalent of Watford but without the charisma. Foam filled pillows that felt as...
