There are two towers to the hotel: the Plaza Wing and Great Wall Wing. My room was in the Plaza Wing. It was quite large for a Holiday Inn, and looked to have been upgraded recently. The bathroom was clean and well maintained. The room had internet service for US$15 per day which is very high, particularly for China. My...

We stayed here for 3 nights in February 2006. At first looking at it on the map it seems to be out of the way. But it really isn't. Cabs are cheap and plentiful. The subway stop is right near by. There is also lots of malls, shops and stores right around the hotel itself. Best part of the location...

As part of a hotel/plane package, my husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Downtown. This Holiday Inn is comparable to those in the United States. The hotel rooms were comfortable and clean. Unlike many hotels, this hotel had sufficient lighting. The included buffet breakfast had western and Chinese food selections. It was very easy to put together a...

My husband, a couple of friends and I stayed here for a week. It was a great location near a metro and train stop so independent travel was very easy. It was very much like most Holiday Inns. The breakfast was great. Comfortable and clean rooms.

I stayed here for one night in August. The room was very small, the air conditioning noisy, the bathroom quite shabby (the shower was aimed at the wall not at the bath). The fridge in the room was noisy and in fact the room itself didn't block out noise at all - we could hear the traffic outside, the people...

I stayed here in fall of 2004. Although the hotel isn't 'downtown', it's directly across from the train station which is good if you're travelling to other parts of China. The room was very clean and good size. The staff and service was above my expectations for a Holiday Inn. Lobby and common areas were nice and clean. Bathroom was...

Having read the Frommers Guide we decided to stay at the Holiday Inn downtown Shanghai. We chose the Plaza Wing as it was reportedly "slightly more upscale." We had requested a no smoking room in advance and were told that none were available upon check in. When the front desk clerk realized that we would go elsewhere, he suddenly found...
